 Missing Old Boys

As from 25 May 2018 the laws on data protection have changed with the arrival of the new General Data Protection Regulation. The most significant part of the new laws is the need for explicit consent from Old Boys for the use of stored data for activities beyond the purpose for which it was gathered. This means that although the Editor can keep the protected database for the annual distribution of ‘The Old Papplewickian’, the list of Missing Old Boys has had to be removed from the Old Boys’ page of the website because the general public has access to this.

Old Boys’ Day 2019 Sunday July 7th

Please make a note of this date in your diary, when once again we shall be having our customary cricket match against the Headmaster's Xl. The game is scheduled to start at 11.00 a.m., lunch for teams and visitors will be at 1.00 o'clock in the marquee and tea will be in the pavilion as usual at 4.00 p.m. The tennis courts will be available for families and friends and at 6 o'clock there will be end-of-match drinks to conclude the day's activities. We shall be delighted to see you there. Old Boys who left Papplewick in 2009, ten years ago now, are particularly invited to Old Boys' Day this year and you will have received a personal invitation to this with the 2019 newsletter. We shall be posting last minute details on the morning of July 7th, by 9.00 a.m. on the School website ( In the event of uncertain weather it is important to check on this as all activities may have to be cancelled at the last minute as they were, sadly, several years ago.
