50 + 10 Bursary Fund Update

As the Development Office approaches its first anniversary, we have been delighted by the warmth and generosity extended to us by the Princethorpe community, many of whom have given their time to advise and feedback on our development initiatives.

Having spent time developing a strategy and meeting key members of the Princethorpe family, we have been able to launch our first fundraising initiative, the 50 + 10 Bursary Fund.

Our aim is to provide at least ten full bursary places for ten pupils. We are actively seeking Princethorpians to support this exciting initiative, in addition to future capital projects which will enhance the experience of every pupil at Princethorpe.

We have already received donations from over twenty families, and are delighted to announce that we are now able to fund one full bursary place and one Sixth form bursary place in September. Single gifts and regular donations continue to be pledged, with small regular amounts adding up to make a significant difference.

The Development Office is currently bringing together a small committee of volunteers who will work to further our initiatives. We are seeking Old Princethorpians who may have some expertise, interest and a small amount of time to spare to join this small group which will meet every half term.

We are also hoping to reach out to Old Princethorpians across the globe. We hope to widen our networks and share our news, events and initiatives with OPs in every corner of the world. Look out for future updates coming your way!

Launch Dinner Aims To Make A Difference At Princethorpe

On Friday 3 March The Development Office held a dinner to launch the Making a Difference at Princethorpe campaign. The 50 + 10 Bursary Fund aims to provide at least ten full bursary places to deserving pupils whose families who could otherwise not afford the fees.

The evening began with a drinks reception and a chance for guests to re-acquaint themselves with old friends, staff and pupils whilst meeting new faces. Following a fabulous dinner provided by our college caterers, the Headmaster was delighted to introduce the cheese course. This was of particular note because cheesemaker and Old Princethorpian Melvin Glynn, had designed and produced a cheese made specifically for us, the ‘Princethorpe Blue’. Melvin’s company, Windyridge Cheese, also provided a sample for each guest to take home!

Almost 100 guests then learnt more about our plans, and heard from past recipients of bursaries about their life-changing experiences. Although unable to attend in person, we also heard from our inaugural donor, Mr Ranjit Boparan, who has pledged to fund a full seven-year bursary place, beginning in September. A fabulous kick-start to the campaign.

Father Alan Whelan, former Headmaster and MSC, spoke on behalf of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart about the ethos of the College, and he was delighted to announce that the MSCs will continue to support the Foundation, this time in the form in a Sixth Form Bursary place for a Catholic student.

Due to the generosity of our inaugural benefactor, we have been very fortunate to work with Zeus Films, to produce a short film which highlights the difference a Princethorpe education makes. Our guests were treated to a premiere showing of the film, which lasted just over 5 minutes, but captivated our audience for every moment. The film can be seen by following the link or pasting this URL into your browser We’ve also shared the video on the College’s Facebook page which you can view here.

We have been humbled by the response to the evening, with a wealth of positive feedback and we are delighted to report that several donations have already been made. Every donation is valued equally, no matter what the size and all gifts ‘make a difference’.

Foundation News: Crescent School Moves To Two Year 4 Classes For September 2017

Following a recent public consultation, the Crescent School on Bawnmore Road, Bilton has confirmed its decision to increase to two Year 4 classes from September 2017. The two classes of initially between 16-18 pupils will move up through the school over the next three years.

Traditionally the school has been one form entry with classes capped at 24 pupils, however with interest at an all-time high, the independent school for boys and girls aged four to eleven, asked current and prospective parents for feedback and to register interest in either Year 4 or 5 earlier in the year.

Comments Headmaster, Huw Marshall, “For a number of years we have considered the possibility of increasing a year group to two forms at the top of the school, where traditionally classes have been full. The consultation showed definitively that interest was strongest for September’s Year 4 and we know we can accommodate and look after the additional children. The move is good news for both our current pupils and the new pupils who will be joining us, they will benefit from the smaller class sizes and the school’s proven success in getting children into their first choice of secondary school, including the local grammars.”

There is still time to register interest in Year 4 for September and lower years. Mrs Helen Morley, Crescent School Registrar will be happy to talk you through the admissions process. Helen can be contacted on 01788 523851 or email

Stepping Back In Time In Oxford

On Wednesday 8 March sixteen Year 11 pupils and four staff travelled to Oxford for a historical visit with a difference.

Margit Tumim, an old girl of St Mary’s Priory (the convent school which later became Princethorpe College) had extended a very warm invitation for pupils to visit her at home in Oxford to talk about her life here at St Mary’s in the 1940s. Margit had arrived at St Mary’s as a young girl on the ‘Kindertransport’ as an evacuee from Austria, speaking only one sentence of English, ‘I do not understand’. Margit says she had many chances to put this into practice during her time at the convent!

Upon arriving in Oxford, the Headmaster showed the pupils around several of the Oxford colleges, pointing out sights and telling stories, culminating in a visit to Brasenose College, Mr Hester’s alma mater. We were fortunate to be able to visit the dining hall, the chapel and walk around the College grounds.

Next stop was a flying visit to the Pitt Rivers museum, where amongst some fascinating exhibits, pupils and staff alike were strangely drawn to the shrunken heads display; very macabre indeed!

We arrived at Margit’s home just in time to make our acquaintances in time for lunch. Margit treated us to a fabulous buffet lunch which was eagerly devoured following all the walking. After lunch Margit held court as the pupils fired off questions about what life was like at school almost eighty years ago. The History pupils were fascinated to learn of life at the convent during the Coventry Blitz, and heard stories of favourite nuns, bedtime routines, and occasional bouts of schoolgirl naughtiness.

It was so interesting to compare school life then and now, particularly when learning of heating, or the lack of, and niceties such as the tuck shop, which consisted of five sweets per person one day a week. The girls could not leave the school during term time, and in fact Margit was unable to return home to her family home in Austria for over seven years.

It was lovely to see Margit and for the pupils to hear about life in war-time Warwickshire. A real History lesson come to life!

Real Tennis Club Proves Big Hitter With OPs

Last Friday's OPs meet at Leamington's Real Tennis Club proved to be a big 'hitter' with all those who came along.

At the invitation of OP Chairman and Real Tennis Club member, Peter Rollason, a small group of 'have a go heroes', former parents Sue Panton and Emma White, old girl Mary Wheildon, former teacher Colin Morgan and Director of Sport, Neil McCollin, arrived promptly to change into their sports gear and gain access to the court for some top class coaching from the Club's Head Coach Liam.  They proved both able and attentive students, receiving compliments on their burgeoning skills from both Liam and some of the club members who were spectating, before they split into pairs for a hard fought game.

By this time a throng had gathered in the gallery adjacent to the court to watch, encourage and at times gently heckle the players!  Pimms flowed as did the conversation between past staff, including Peter Griffin, Mike Taylor, Alex Darkes and Steve White and past pupils including Ed Steele, James Lakey, Mike Edwards, David Mold, Ed Rogers and Paul Carter.

After the coaching session, OPs Peter Rollason and Ed Steele (another Real Tennis Club member) and Neil McCollin took to the court with Real Tennis club members, John Devis and Chris Sampson for an exhibition doubles match. 

The party shortly afterwards moved into the bar area where a delicious bowl buffet was served to the appreciative group and conversation carried on well into the evening.

With thanks to the Real Tennis Club for an OP Meet with a difference.  We will be looking at a new venue for 2017/2018 suggestions always welcome!



Gastronomic Spin Off To Golden Jubilee Celebrations

Not many schools can boast a commemorative cheese as part of their anniversary celebrations, but as we know, Princethorpe is far from your average school!

The Golden Jubilee celebrations have had an unexpected gastronomic spin off with the launch of Princethorpe Blue, a brand new cheese developed in honour of the College’s 50th anniversary by master cheesemaker and Old Princethorpian, Melvin Glynn.

Melvin, who now owns the Windyridge Cheese Company in Wincanton, Somerset, was inspired to create the special cheese after attending Princefest with his wife Carole in September 2016. Appropriately he was one of the first pupils at the College in the late 60s and has many fond memories of his time spent here.

Early in 2017 Melvin and Carole made a special visit to the College with samples of the prototype cheese. A flurry of deliveries then followed with a truckle for each member of staff and then generously for all the attendees at the launch of the College’s Make a Difference Bursary Campaign in March.

Describing his new cheese, Melvin comments, “Princethorpe Blue is a delicious fusion of mature English cheddar and young French blue cheese, a homage if you like to Princethorpe’s English and French influences, from the time of Missionaries of the Sacred Heart and before them the Benedictines.”

Those wishing to sample the cheese are invited to attend the College’s Summer Fete and Motoring Festival on Sunday 25 June from 2.00pm to 4.30pm, where a team from Windyridge will have a stall offering tastings and selling Princethorpe Blue, along with other cheeses from their range. A 200gm truckle of Princethorpe Blue will cost £4.

Negotiations are ongoing with some local fine food retail outlets who are interested in selling Princethorpe Blue and interest in the cheese is going international too with sales to a chain of supermarkets in Malta, no less.

Cheese lovers will be able to purchase Princethorpe Blue online from early June by visiting the online shop at

Easter Rematch For OPs Vs Babas

Following their last match at Princefest in September, Easter Saturday saw the OPs take on the Kenilworth Babas again this time in Kenilworth, Captain Harry O'Brien takes up the story...

With a big turnout for both sides, two very strong teams went head-to-head over the Easter weekend. 

The Babas got off to a great start with a number of quick tries as the OP defence got to grips with the game. Then the OPs started to put together numerous good phases as they began to assert themselves.

The OPs scored a number of tries to get back into the game setting up a thrilling final third. With both sides hammering away at each other Kenilworth scored a further try to pull away at the very end.

The final score was 41-34 to the home team.

Comments, OP Chairman, Peter Rollason, “I was a bit shocked to arrive at the ground and to be asked to play for the opposition for the first half, and it's the first time I have carried on playing after half-time in the same direction! (having swapped shirts and joined the OP's!)."

“The tempo of the game was extremely rapid and the skill levels were very high; all attempts to drag them down to my level proved futile.  It was a fantastic turnout by the OPs, particularly as it was played on a Saturday over the Easter weekend.  Kenilworth proved impeccable hosts and the hospitality afterwards was splendid; matched only by the tremendous spirit in which the game was played."


Old Princethorpians News

Golden Jubilee Airs On BBC Coventry And Warwickshire

News of the College's Golden Jubilee celebrations and the Spirit of Family Book aired to the great listening public on Friday 17 March on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire.

Keith Wedgebury the station's roving reporter, interviewed archivist, Nick Baker and Foundation Bursar and Old Princethorpian, Eddie Tolcher live during the Brody Swain Show around 2.40pm.

The interview touched on many aspects of the Golden Jubilee year and the College's history including tall tales of ghosts, seventies fashion faux pas, the chapel, the Benedictine nuns and the history of 'Switzerland'.

Eddie and Nick also got the chance to promote some of the final upcoming events of the year including the Golden Jubilee Cycling Pilgrimage and the Golden Jubilee Ball and to celebrate Michael Gucleur's engineering success at the Big Bang Fair.

Golden Jubilee Spring Concert – A True Jewel In Our Crown!

The fantastic surroundings of Coventry Central Hall provided the backdrop for Princethorpe College’s annual Spring Concert on Friday 24 March. Over 90 talented Princethorpe pupils were joined by representatives from Crackley Hall, Crescent School and some of our Old Princethorpians to treat the 300-strong audience to a night to remember.

As a one-off special in celebration of the College’s Golden Jubilee Year, several OPs joined our musical students for this year’s Spring Concert. Many OPs were returning from University/Conservatoires where they are carrying on their passion and studying music or still playing as a hobby. Accompanying the college Choir and Orchestra were OPs Nick Bond, Charlotte Cuningham, Tilly Langford, Matt MacLellan, Rory Pickin, Maya Vohrah and Jodie Fisher (who works at Princethorpe assisting in the music department as a peripatetic music teacher and co-ordinator of Jazz Band).

The highlight of the evening for our OPs was singing the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ medley with the choir. Matt and Nick, taking their old positions as tenors in the Choir, filled the room with the Disney classics showing off their dramatic delivery and rich harmonies within the choir. For the big finale, everyone joined in for ‘Mr Blue Sky’ with Rory and Jodie on trumpet, Charlotte on clarinet, Maya on cello, Tilly on the violin and Matt standing strong in the choir.      

The College Orchestra played to their usual high standard, with a varied repertoire covering Bizet’s Habanera, Bernstein’s West Side Story, and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture (complete with a barrage of paper bag canons from an enthusiastic audience!). The strength in depth of the new Year 7 brass section is particularly encouraging and bodes well for the future! John Legend’s All of Me proved that they are as comfortable with the pop repertoire as more traditional fare.

The other fine ensembles on show included the ever-popular Jazz Band, transporting an enthusiastic crowd to Birdland, the Year 7 Chorus and their toe-tapping Disney Medley and Junior Wind keeping things serious with a confident performance of Shostakovich’s Jazz Waltz. The Steel Pan groups brought a taste of the Caribbean to proceedings, covering pieces as diverse as The Blue Danube and Surfin’ USA.

The concert featured the World Premier of Year 9 pupil, Lauren Mason’s Spring Days (composed as a response to her Higher Level 2 Project). A phenomenal achievement, leaving the audience wowed by her wonderful piece and her faultless delivery. Lauren added, “The piece aims to reflect the season of Spring, new beginnings, starting afresh, growth and achievement. I enjoyed the challenge of learning a new music notation software, and techniques for experimenting and improvising, and as a result I believe that my music skills have greatly developed.”

Other soloists showing off their talents included new scholar Geraint Griffiths stunning the audience with his dexterity in Vivaldi’s Sonata No. 5, Year 11s Lauren Hill and Joe Rees separately captivating the audience with their singing, and outgoing Arts Prefects Ben Pinto and Tom Barnes proving why they were offered places at every music college for which they applied this year. Meanwhile, the Crescent School’s Imogen Angell (Cornet) and Crackley Hall’s Tom Lomas (Voice) gave incredibly mature performances on this most daunting of stages.

School of Rock began the build up to the finale by getting the crowd clapping along to Mercy by Muse.

Director of Music, Gil Cowlishaw writes, “I am overjoyed with the standard of music-making being shown this year. Fittingly for our Golden Jubilee celebrations we had more performers, more variety and a higher standard of playing than at any of our previous Spring Concerts. The bar was already set incredibly high, and this evening it has been raised yet again. I would like to thank all our pupils and their parents, for continuing to support Music at Princethorpe. We hope to see you all again next year, spread the word!”

Cake And Prosecco For Former Staff At Golden Jubilee High Tea

One of the final events in celebration of our glorious Golden Jubilee year was a scrumptious High Tea for former staff. The event took place on the Friday before the start of the Trinity Term with our catering team doing us proud with a grand selection of posh nosh to indulge in.

We were very pleased to welcome back lots of familiar Princethorpe faces. Many of our visitors took the opportunity to take an extended tour of the school reminiscing over their time here, before meeting in the Sixth Form Atrium where they were warmly welcomed by Ed Hester.

Our archivist, Nick Baker, had fun trailing through years and years of photos and putting together a wonderful slideshow of old pictures complete with 70s side burns and an assortment of moustache variations having us all in stitches. Many existing staff joined the party as well to catch up with old friends and talk about how everything has changed over the years.

All in all, the event was a huge success filled with lots of laughs, sandwiches, cake and prosecco; a delightful way to kick start our final round of Golden Jubilee celebrations.

Help us to keep in touch with you: the new data laws

Currently, organisations in the UK rely on the Data Protection Act 1998 to govern their use of data, but this will soon be superseded by new legislation which comes into force on 25 May 2018. The Foundation is working hard to become compliant before the deadline. The greatest change brought in by General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) is that people will be given more say about what companies can do with their data. Although this is a change which has been driven by the EU, it will be adopted by the UK, as the legislation comes into force within the two-year period during which Article 50 is triggered for Brexit. Lawyers believe that the UK is ultimately likely to adopt legislation equivalent to the GDPR.

Once the legislation comes into effect, we must continue to ensure that personal data is processed lawfully, transparently, and for a specific purpose.

So what does this mean? In many ways it means a better-tailored message from the Foundation to you as stakeholders. We need to ask you - quite specifically - how you would like us to communicate with you, for example: by post, email, telephone or text messaging and the sorts of message which you would be happy to receive from us. In the case of Old Princethorpians this principally means news about our schools, events, offers of services like OP merchandise, networking opportunities and fundraising information.

GDPR states that the consent from you must be an active, affirmative action by you, rather than some of the current models which allow for pre-ticked boxes or opt-outs in the small print. So, in short, you must positively opt in. We must also keep a record of how and when you gave consent and we must allow you to withdraw your consent whenever you want, which we hope you won’t do! Our new InTouch database is being adapted so that we can be totally compliant.

Under GDPR rules you also have the right to access any information which we hold about you and the right to know why that data is being processed, how long it's stored for, and who gets to see it. You can also ask for that data, if incorrect or incomplete, to be rectified whenever you want. You also have the right to demand that your data is deleted if it's no longer necessary to the purpose for which it was collected. This is known as the 'right to be forgotten'.

So please help us to keep in touch with you - but only in a way which works for you. You can click on this link and update your preferences for the way in which we contact you and the sort of information which you would like to receive.
