1722 Society Summer Lunch 2023

Members of the 1722 Society and their guests gathered for lunch and to meet current pupils...

We were delighted to welcome so many of our 1722 Society guests for lunch on a glorious sunny afternoon in June. Current Sixth Form students and some of our Ukrainian pupils joined the guests for drinks and canapes on the Headmaster's Lawn, to share their experiences of life at Churcher's today.

There was an opportunity for many guests to see their engraved stones in the newly laid Tercentenary Path before moving into the Assembly Hall for a delicious lunch served by our in-house caterers Sodexo. Many of the Old Churcherians present commented that school food in their day was not nearly so good! 

Over coffee, the Headmaster gave an address, thanking all present for their support of the Richard Churcher Foundation, referencing how the bursary programme is 'a gift that keeps on giving'. Not only do the Foundationers benefit from the support, the whole school community is enhanced from their presence, their enthusiasm for education and their appreciation of the opportunities they would otherwise have been unable to experience. Mr Williams introduced two of the Ukrainian pupils who gave an insight into how they have settled into the Churcher's community and how welcomed and supported they feel.

We were also lucky enough to have 'The News Crew' in attendance (a pupil-led group aiming to make and produce videos highlighting the everyday brilliance of Churcher's College). They thoroughly enjoyed interviewing some of our Old Churcherian guests as part of their ongoing film project, which you can view below.
