I still reckon it'll only be feasible for pupils residing in or around the Horsham area.

Not a very practical proposal. How do you know that something's going to annoy you until you've read it? :roll:

Re: Who Else Has Never Been Back to CH?

There was a dedicated careers room in the '70s - in Thorn. A, I think. I only visited a couple of times, as it was full of dusty old brochures about how to join the army, become a brain surgeon, etc. I suspect it was there because someone had to be seen to be making an effort..... Oh, and Spoony, co...

Well, thank-you all! Just wondering whether I should be shopping for slippers or Saga holidays...

Re: Day Pupils.

I've just looked at the school website to see whether there is any official announcement yet of the new policy to admit day pupils. There isn't, but my eye was caught by the news section item announcing a 'New Director of Development'. (I'm guessing she won't come cheap?!) Watch out OBs, it looks a...

Re: The Forthcoming General Election

I can foresee a problem as someone who grew up in Itchingfield and boarded. Congestion The road between horsham and ch gets choked at rush hour - public transport is near non-existant. Up until now the school has never had to worry about people being late for school or not being able to get in thro...
