It is with immense sadness that we inform you of the sudden death of Tony Sparshott, our Old Boys Secretary from 2000 to 2021. His funeral is taking place at 11am on Thursday 27th January 2022 at Harbour View Crematorium, Lytchett Minster, Dorset BH16 6AN. The website address is www.tapperfuneralservice.co.uk/harbour-view where there is a page dedicated to Tony's funeral. Old Boys and their families are of course welcome to attend the funeral after which the wake will be held at the same venue.
OLD BOYS’ DAY
2022 - Sunday July 10th
We very much hope that Old Boys Day will be going ahead as usual this year with the Old Boys XI facing the Headmaster's XI on the cricket field, and ten year reunions being held for those who left the school in 2010. 2011, and 2102.
has also been a change of plan concerning the 'Sevens' Reunion arranged specifically for the Old Boys of the 1950s, which had been
scheduled to take place first in July, and then in September 2021. This group contains a considerable number
of Old Boys who live outside the UK and the potential continuation of Covid restrictions puts them in danger of incurring a period of quarantine, which is
not acceptable to the majority of those concerned. Rather than carry on without
them, which would detract from the purpose of the reunion, we now plan to hold the reunion on Sunday 15th May 2022 when we hope all restrictions will have been
lifted. We therefore now much look forward to welcoming them to Papplewick this summer.
