OBs talk to 6.2s on life after Bedales

A group of Old Bedalians (around 28-30 years old) came back to Bedales recently to talk to 6.2s. They discussed what their time was like at Bedales and life afterwards, including gap years, university and work. This ranged from the army, banking and publishing, to film, languages and medicine. A lot of useful advice and offers of help were given. We then mingled in the Pigeon Hole finding out all the gossip and mischievous things they got up to at Bedales, as well as discussing specific topics that related to our universities or careers later in life. It was particularly nice to see the OBs joking around with their old school mates that they hadn’t seen in 10 years, and interesting to find connections with their time at Bedales and ours, including being taught by the same teachers! Many had that special OB charm to them and were really engaged in talking to us, proving that most Bedalians really do leave with charisma.
