Pennthorpe – 1980s reunion Garden Party

March 17, 2017

Pennthorpe School is inviting all pupils who left in the 1980s, or who were at the school for part of the 1980s, to join in a reunion garden party on Sunday 7th May 2017 from 2pm – 6pm at Pennthorpe.

Weather permitting, there will be Pimms on the terrace and live music from ex Pennthorpe pupils and staff.

Headmaster Neil Jones says: “There will also be tours of the school for those of you who would like to have a look at your old dormitories!

“If you were a member of staff during the 1980s, we would love you to join us for the afternoon as well.

“Please do pass this information on to any other former pupils or staff who you are still in touch with who might be interested in coming.

“If you would like to join us, please email my PA Fiona Long on flong@pennthorpe.comso that we have an idea of numbers and also so that we can send you updates on the arrangements for the day.

“If you have any photographs, school ties, Penmans or any other memorabilia from your time at Pennthorpe, we would love to see them. If you are able to email scanned photographs to Mrs Long at, we will print them out to make a display on the day which hopefully will jog some memories! Any information you can give us on the photographs you send (names of people, year, title of play you were in etc) would be really helpful.

“If you are in touch with other pupils who were with you at Pennthorpe, whenever you were with us, please ask them to like the alumni Facebook page for further updates as we hope to make these reunions an annual event for different age groups.

“If you would like to come, or have any photographs to send us, please contact Mrs Long on

“We look forward to meeting you in May.”
