The second of last week’s OB reunions based on universities took place in Oxford on Thursday when nine OBs currently studying at Oxford met up at the Old Bank Hotel. First, second and third year undergraduates attended. Also with them were headmaster, Keith Budge, and four current and two former members of staff together with OB Oliver Jacobs (1952), Emeritus Fellow of Engineering at St John’s College. Other subjects represented included Fine Art, Physics, English, Modern Languages, Biological Sciences and Medicine. The eclectic mix made for much interesting conversation as school links were renewed and the value of the Bedales network in offering shared experience, professional guidance and opportunities for mentoring made clear.
