Celebrating 40 years of Claremont Fan Court School

Celebratory Tea and Tour at Claremont Fan Court School
Class of 2003/2004
Class of 2003/2004
On Saturday 30 March 2019 we welcomed back alumni and friends of the School to celebrate the 1978 amalgamation of Fan Court School and Claremont School.

This was the first event of its kind for the School, aimed at reuniting alumni and offering the opportunity to revisit the School and learn more about the history of the Claremont Estate with a guided tour from our alumni and historian, Pamela Rider. 

Guests were welcomed in the Drawing Room by new Headmaster, Mr Will Brierly and Chair of the School Governors, Mr Gordon Hunt, before heading off on a tour of the Mansion, followed by afternoon tea in the Great Room, where there was the opportunity to chat to old friends and staff, and make some new ones.

We were delighted to welcome back Diana Allen (Class of 1963, Radnor), headmistress of the Pre-prep School during the amalgamation in 1978, as well as alumni and parent of an alumni, Annabel Allen (Class of 1987, Esher).

We also welcomed back eight ladies from the Class of 2003 and 2004 (photographed above), Robyn Evans (Norwood); Lisa Woodburn (Longcross); Poppy Griggs, nee Bayne (Longcross); Emma Halford, nee Kirley (Longcross); Freya Patrick, nee Brown (Radnor); Holly Shawyer, nee Seaton-Wood (Radnor); Sam Spriegel nee Jupp (Norwood) and Lauren Swales, nee Banner (Radnor).

Our next networking event is on Thursday 6 June at the Bankside Gallery on London’s Southbank, please sign up here to attend. If you are interested in our upcoming events, please visit the event page for more information.
