The first OP Leeds Drinks

21 March 2018 at the Lazy
Lounge Bar at West Point. The
informal format worked really
well with 23 OPs, guests and

Sixty OPs, staff and guests came for lunch and enjoyed
archive visits, school tours or playing for the OP teams
in the annual cricket and tennis fixtures. A particular
highlight of the tour this year, was a visit to the new Art
& Design Centre. There were reunions for the ’78 (40
years), ’68 (50 years) and ’58 leavers (60 years).
SHOUT OUT TO 1980/78
A year group reunion is proposed for 1980 sixth
form and 1978 fifth form leavers in summer
2020 marking the 40th anniversary since most
of the year group left the school. The reunion
will be in York but date and venue have yet to
be chosen and will depend on the numbers
attending. Contact either David Agar or Jon
Gregory through the school or the Facebook
group if you would like to come along. It would
be great to see you.
Please also pass the message along the line to
other year group members with whom you
might be in touch but have dropped out of sight.
161 NOT OUT!
