We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our annual Archive Open day, taking place on Wednesday, 2nd May – this time starting at the slightly later time of 4pm. This year’s event will be back in Rotherfield House, giving those of you who haven’t yet seen the refurbishments a chance to view the ‘new look’ Rotherfield.

We are delighted that we will be hearing from Ruth Newell (Class of 1974), whose mother, Mrs Newell, some of you will remember as a teacher of chemistry and games. Ruth will be talking about her experiences as a pupil, parent and governor at RLS. Headteacher, David Hudson will be there, and John Hounslow (who spoke about boarding in the 1960s at last year’s Archive Day), will be attending to give a quick preview of the new book planned on the Royal Latin to be published in time for the 600th anniversary in 2023, and to chat to any of you who may have school stories to tell that may be of interest for the book project.  Archive material will be on display, including all the latest donated items, and there will be the chance to catch up with old school friends in an informal atmosphere with a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

If you plan to attend, we would be grateful if you could let us know at latinlife@royallatin.org Thank you.
