On Friday 17th November our Year 7 and 13 students attended a service at St Mary’s church to celebrate Founders’ Day. This annual event is an important day of celebration and reflection of our school. The foundation of our school is an old one. Although King Charles I gave us our charter in 1636, the foundation was established by Thomas Blount, Lord of the Manor of Kidderminster, some seventy years earlier. We celebrate the occasion on the Friday nearest to 19th November, the birthday of King Charles I. The event was attended by a number of civic dignitaries and other members of our local community and we would like to thank them for attending the service. We would also like to thank Reverend Rose Lawley for conducting the service and Father Robert Legge for the nostalgic sermon he gave to our staff and students.
