Autumn Events from the CHA
Spring has definitely sprung and as we move into summer, plans are already underway for two major CHA events taking place at the school in the autumn.
On 15th September, we will be holding a reunion for Coleridge A and B together, and on 4th October, we are inviting serving members of the military to take part in the school CCF inspection and speak to the pupils about a career in the military as part of a day of events and a lunch to gather Old Blues of similar interests together. Further details of these events will appear in due course, so keep checking the website for more news and we’ll be in touch soon.

Warmest regards,
