A Day in the Life of…
“I was in the Granary boys boarding house and I thoroughly enjoyed the company of everyone there, including the leavers from last year, the students who were only there for a short time, the housemasters and the cleaning staff! I have very fond memories of our long, deep weekend chats, semi-competitive FIFA tournaments and Wednesday football. I have made friendships that will last a lifetime and memories that I will always cherish in my heart”.
