A reunion is being organised for former pupils of the Duke’s and Duchess’s School in Alnwick.

It is planned to hold the event in Alnwick on the evening of Saturday, September 30.

Organisers Katherine Grant, Judith Muir, Maurice Hall ask: “Were you an excited/terrified First Former at the Duke’s or Duchess’s School in September 1974? Did you take your O Levels/CSEs at either school in June 1979 or A Levels at the ‘new’ Duchess’s High School in the summer of 1981?

“In ‘celebration’ of the fact we have reached the grand old age of 60, we would like to invite everyone from our year to a reunion to catch up and reminisce, and possibly rekindle old friendships.

“We already have a good level of interest but to get an idea of numbers, we are asking you to get in touch with us via [email protected] (the only address Google would give us!) before Saturday, July 1.

“We want to have a fantastic evening. So to start the ball rolling, here are photographs of our four form groups taken between 1976 and 1978. Recognise yourself? Recognise others? Get in touch!
