The reunion …at Oxford

Old friendships were renewed and new experiences shared when 18 Old Bedalians currently studying at Oxford met together as a group for the first time since leaving school. First, second and third year undergraduates represented 14 different fields of study ranging from Maths to Music and Fine Art to Medicine. Keith Budge and four members of staff attended the reunion, hosted by Chairman of Governors, Matthew Rice.  In welcoming them, Keith outlined how the Bedales network can help OBs in terms of professional guidance, mentoring and the sharing of experience, and encouraged them to keep in touch with both each other and with the school.
