At the age of 92, Helen Wright died on 2 January 2020. Helen was the widow of Chris Wright (CR 1950-67), initially Head of History and then Beevor's Housemaster from 1956-67 and she played an important role in running Beevor's House.
The Wright family very much enjoyed the years they spent at Aldenham and Chris and Helen's children formed precious memories growing up at the School, describing the whole environment as "an idyllic home".
A celebration of Helen's life will be held on Wednesday 22nd January 2020 at Christ Church, Malvern Road, Cheltenham, Glos. GL50 2JH.
Time: 1pm
We send sincere condolences to Richard, Polly, Dan and Hugh and their families at this difficult time.

Over 40 recent leavers returned to Aldenham just before Christmas to receive their A Level certificates from the Headmaster and Head of the Senior School.
It was quite a celebration with over 100 guests filling the Theatre to congratulate the students and hear a bit about their school days and an update on their experiences.
Welcome refreshments were served afterwards providing an opportunity for a proper catch up with friends and to find out more about the benefits of the OA Society.
We hope to see these young OAs back for many events in future, including the Annual Dinner in the spring and OA Day in the summer.
Well done and good luck to you all.

On behalf of the Old Aldenhamian Society, I offer a warm welcome to those students who left Aldenham in 2019 and are now new members of the OA Society.
Indeed I look forward to seeing as many OAs as possible at the Spring OA Annual Dinner at the School on Saturday 7 March. It will be a great opportunity to catch up with friends old and new.
Best wishes for the Season to you and your family for a safe, healthy and prosperous 2020.

Every year, a group of intrepid OA golfers embark on a short golfing tour abroad, usually in France, Belgium or Holland but occasionally to more adventurous places such as Morocco and even South Africa. This year 9 players including went to Bruges, a beautiful historic city and not the obvious location for a group of golfers, but OA golfers are, of course, a different breed – well-educated, cultured, and (generally) well behaved!
The first drive on Monday was over 400 yards, about 100 miles in fact, via Eurotunnel to Bruges. The last 5 miles involved driving around Bruges along narrow roads, some of which were closed by excavations and others which were probably pedestrian zones judging by the looks we got from passers-by! The group checked in at Martins Hotel and explored the City. Sightseeing ended in the main Square at Café Craenenburg for a long lunch. Later they headed out to de Gastro, a delightful restaurant run by an Albanian family from Kosovo, where they ate extremely well.
After a good breakfast on a somewhat windy, cloudy but dry day the golfers set off for Ostend. The golf course there is the only links course in Belgium.
The Nine consisted of Mark Weatherhead (M1954-57), Neil Melvill (K1965-70), Clive Simeons (SHE1952-56), John Yule (SHE1966-71), Ian Wilson-Soppitt (P1958-61), Marcus Blake (P1951-56), Phil Murphy (K1965-70), Ian Eggleden (SHE1958-63) and Michael Beavis (SHO1980-83). Playing in 3s, Melvill and Murphy challenged 5 handicap Beavis to a match. With Melvill scoring a hole in one, Beavis was throttled. The good news for Neil was that the Bar was closed all day. However, he bought all the beer and wine at dinner at Ribs ‘n Beer, a superb restaurant serving exactly what it said on the tin. Neil then generously bought more drinks back at the hotel.
The next day, golf was at Damme Golf Club, a short drive from Bruges, where it started to rain and continued throughout the day, with players getting extremely wet and finishing up dishevelled, rather than drowned rats!
The course was beautiful and play was for the Prevost Salver, a magnificent silver trophy presented by our own Nigel Prevost (SHO1949-54). Played in pairs with the better score of the two counting at each hole, it was a close battle and won this year by John Yule (again!) and Clive Simeons with 37 points from Ian Wilson-Soppitt and Marcus Blake with an excellent 36 points. After a nice lunch with burgers or omelettes washed down with local beer, John and Clive were presented with the trophy.
Later that day dinner was back in Bruges at a fascinating restaurant called ‘t Zwart Huis.
The final day of the Tour was sunny at last and on the way to Calais the group stopped off at Dunkerque to play 18 holes.
On arriving at the Eurotunnel complex, goodbyes were said before boarding the Shuttle and then driving in various directions homeward bound.
All were agreed that it had been a great Tour and John Yule was rightly praised for arranging yet another really interesting and enjoyable few days. Thank you, John, and roll on 2020.
Hanc Aldenham!

It is with much sadness to announce that Ian Luetchford passed away on Sunday 22 September after a long illness battling leukaemia, fought valiantly.
Ian represented Aldenham in the Shooting viii 1951; then later, Finance Director with Clifton Nurseries, Little Venice from 1960-1991. Ian will be remembered for his hard work over many years as Hon. Treasurer, the Aldenham Club Trust (formerly known as the Aldenham Boys’ Club in Kentish Town). Vice Chairman and Volunteer for Victim Support Hertsmere.
In recognition of his tireless work co-ordinating the OA Annual Dinner over many years and loyal commitment to the OA Society Committee for nearly twenty-five years, Ian was elected as a Vice President when he stepped down last year.
Both Ian and his wife, Norma, were regular supporters and attendees of many OA related events including Regional lunches, OA Days and of course, OA Annual Dinners.
I shall miss Ian’s kindness and guidance shown to me during my OA Presidency and indeed his beaming smile.
A funeral service for Ian will be held on Tuesday 15 October, 12 noon, Aldenham School Chapel.

On Thursday 5 September 2019 Aldenham Connect was launched at Gallery 508 in Kings Road, Chelsea. The evening was hosted by Ush Uthayakumar (P1994-99) at the gallery he owns in London. The event offered an opportunity for OAs and other members of the Aldenham community to network, sharing business experiences and ultimately making connections that can be valuable in various way. The theme of the evening was 'The Creative Side of Business', led by Dan Andrews (B2000--7), CEO and Founder of The Tree. President of the OA Society, James James-Crook (M1968-72), himself a fine art consultant and auctioneer, welcomed guests to this inaugural meeting, he was encouraged by the turnout of around 40 people. The Headmaster was delighted to see several OAs who he remembered, particularly for their creative talents at school, now flourishing in various fields and who will benefit from the chance to establish links with fellow alumni.

Around 150 OAs and guests returned to Aldenham on OA Day and for the School House Reunion, on Sunday 9 June ‘19. School House was the focus for the day, with current students from Leeman’s and Riding’s, formerly Evens and Odds respectively, on hand to explain what school life is like for them now. Key changes are that School House is now for day students only and Riding’s is just for girls!
We were extremely lucky with the glorious weather, which enabled proceedings to go ahead as planned throughout the day, including a drinks reception in School House Garden before lunch and the John Dewes cricket match (eventually won by the John Dewes team), which was in full swing for the duration as well as a Fives tournament.
Guests were first greeted in the Library by the Headmaster, Leeman’s Housemaster, Riding’s Housemistress, the President and Committee members of the OA Society. Time was taken to remember and thank two OAs in particular, Peter Shoup (SHE1950-51) and Colin Shield (SHO1945-49) who had both left gifts in their wills to Aldenham in the last year. These unrestricted financial contributions had enabled the recent refurbishment of the Library and the creation of two quiet study rooms, which have very appropriately been named after the two benefactors.
A Thanksgiving service in the Chapel brought everyone together in reflection and to learn or relearn the School song, which has been resurrected in recent years – Hanc Aldenham, Hanc Aldenham!
The ages of those present ranged from 17 to 97 and at lunch time a hum of chatter and laughter filled the Dining Hall, as guests remembered time spent there in years gone by. For some this was the first visit in 60 years, others are regulars at events, some with their own children now enjoying another kind of Aldenham education.

The Punchbowl, Lapworth, was a splendid venue for the latest Aldenham Regional Lunch. Recommended by Karren Brady (B1985-87), this wonderful country pub and restaurant was perfect for our get together. The event attracted 35 guests, which just about filled the private space in the Garden Room and the fine spring weather enabled us to spill out into the courtyard after a very tasty and beautifully presented three course meal. Pictures taken at the event are available to view in the Event Galleries, you will need to log in to see them. Please contact the Development & OA Office if you do not have or have forgotten your unique access details.

The Old Aldenhamian Golf Society put up strong opposition in the Halford Hewitt Cup tournament this year. To start with a good team defeated Dulwich in the 1st round albeit at the 20th hole. There was then a real fight against Haileybury in the 2nd round, with every match going all the way to the 18th hole. There was a fantastic spirit in the team and amongst the many supporters.
This year we were delighted to welcome back Joel Bloomfield (SH & L1987-92) and David Rawlinson (B1988-93) to join the team.
James Surridge (L1993-98) and Michael Deverell (B1997-2002) had a comfortable win but our 3rd and 4th pairs came up against some stern opposition and eventually succumbed to defeat. Our 5th pair, Will Kirby (L2006-11) and Dan Andrews (B2000-07) also had a tough match but built up a small lead which they held on to with some great golf, eventually being rewarded with a 5 & 4 win.
With the overall match at 2 games apiece, all eyes fell on Shon Williams (M1975-80) and Joel Bloomfield. They halved after 18 holes so had to carry on in a sudden death play-off.
Joel’s drive down the 19th was just a few yards right of the fairway and it nestled under the only bush that could be seen within 200 yards. Shon managed to get it back on the fairway and Joel then played a delightful shot to the green. It was straight at the pin but we had to watch agonizingly as it ran 30 feet past the flag. The opposition managed a par in 4 which meant Shon had to hole his putt just to halve the hole. By now a large crowd had gathered, mostly OAs, to watch Shon stroke it majestically towards the flag. Having allowed for a slight borrow to the right, it was just the right pace and it dropped obligingly into the hole. What a putt, a Captain’s putt if ever I saw one!
So on to the 20th hole, both drives down the middle. Still reeling from Shon’s heavy blow, Dulwich went long and left whilst Joel hit a superb iron on to the green pin high. They pitched up short and then 3-putted to give Aldenham the match.
It was a wonderful team effort and the many OA supporters there (about 20 on the day including the OA Society President, James James-Crook, M 1968-72) were treated to a memorable performance.
Friday dawned bright and breezy but cold. with the second round match against Haileybury in prospect. We had heard that they were somewhat dismissive of Aldenham’s chances of victory. Little did they know about the quality, not to mention the spirit, of the 2019 Aldenham team and their supporters.
It was a familiar story in that Surridge and Deverell recorded another win with pars at nearly every hole. Shon and Joel were again forced into a play-off but this time they made sure with a win at the 19th – on the course, not in the bar!
It must be admitted that Haileybury were a talented team with a Bonallack (son of the famous Michael Bonallack) and some players on +1 or +3 handicaps. It is perhaps not entirely surprising that we eventually had to concede defeat but it is fair to point out that all matches ended on the 18th or 19th. Indeed, in the 4th match, Adam Thrussell (B1992-97) played a beautiful chip to the 18th green and David Rawlinson was unlucky narrowly to miss the putt which would have sent them down the 19th to decide the match.
Never mind, each and every member of the team plus all the supporters contributed massively to the two matches. It was truly a team effort and they could not have done any better.
Well done everyone, it was a great day for Aldenham.

Aldenham and the OA Society were well represented at a Thanksgiving Service held at St Margaret’s Church, Westminster Abbey, for the life of Field Marshal the Lord Vincent of Coleshill GBE KCB DSO, known to friends as Dick Vincent (SHE 1945-50). Dick will long be remembered for his role as President of the OA Society from 1999 to 2003 and as Vice President thereafter and for the support he gave to Aldenham. He was a Governor from 1997 to 2010 and after this long service was honoured as Governor Emeritus.
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh were represented at this high profile service, by Marshal of the RAF, Lord Craig of Radley. Other members of the Royal Family were also represented by high ranking military officers. The ceremony celebrated the life of a family man of immense charm and modesty, who rose to be the most senior officer in the British Army and a member of the House of Lords. Dick’s daughter, the Honourable Mrs Amanda Matthews read ‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling and one of his granddaughter’s, read ‘That Man is a Success’ by Robert Louis Stevenson. The tributes by General Sir Rupert Smith and Colonel the Honourable Mark Vincent MBE, Dick’s son, made reference to Dick’s time at Aldenham and his particular interest in supporting education.
Over 30 OAs were present to pay their respects on the day, along with the Headmaster and Chair of Governors, Trevor Barton (K1971-75), the Contingent Commander of the CCF and other current and former staff members. James James-Crook, President, OA Society, three Vice Presidents, Committee Members and several of Dick’s contemporaries at school joined the guests to give thanks for his life, his kindness and friendship.
A portrait of Lord Vincent hangs in the School Dining Hall as he is one of the most distinguished of all OAs and it will continue to be there to help inspire future generations.
Pictures taken on this very special occasion of thanksgiving are available to view in the Event Galleries on this website.

Matt Wallace (L2003-08), is currently ranked 37th in the World as a professional golfer and on Friday 8 February 2019 he returned to Aldenham to share his skills and experiences with current scholars and other invited guests.
At school Matt was an outstanding sportsman, captaining the cricket 1st XI in 2008. He continued to play sport for the OAs, football, cricket and golf, when he left Aldenham and was part of the winning OAFC squad in 2016, when they secured the London Old Boys Challenge trophy. In the 2009 Halford Hewitt Matt and Jason Clemow (K1985-90) beat Chigwell 7 & 6. The following year they lost to Downside, 3 & 2, although the team managed to secure a win 3 & 2.
During his visit, after a quick catch up with the Headmaster and teachers, Matt returned to Leeman’s House for old time’s sake and then headed over to a specially prepared t-off area to hit a few balls. The rather inclement weather didn’t dampen the spirit of those who had gathered to watch and to hear Matt’s tips; from choice of club to weather watching. Members of the OA Golf Society, Robin Chaventre (M1949-52), Ian Wilson-Soppit (P1958-61) and Martin Jeens (SHE1956-61) were among the spectators who enjoyed watching the current sports scholars being put through their paces.
Over 40 people gathered in the dry and warm surroundings of The Wells Centre, for a question and answer session led by Director of Sport, Andy Stephenson (CR1999-Present). Andy, who remembers Matt as a young, extremely competitive teenager, teased out information about the route to success. Matt’s candid responses were humbling as he described the highs and lows of success and disappointment, told of his passion to win and the fire that drives him on. It was striking to hear how he values his Aldenham friendships and advised the current students to keep in touch and to help each other out when needed. He also emphasised the importance of preparation, practice and patience; keeping realistic expectations that reflect your current performance and working to achieve the best you can. He said this was the best advice he had received and believes that coming to understand and accept it was the turning point that had helped him to achieve what he has so far.
It was a delight to see Matt chatting easily to the students, staff and OAs alike and we will of course continue to watch his progress with enthusiasm and pride. His next big challenge is the US Masters in April 2019 and he has agreed to come back with ‘The Green Jacket’! We look forward to that.
Photos of this event will be available to view in the Event Galleries.

He was one of the most distinguished OAs. After National Service, Dick became a full time soldier with the Royal Artillery initially serving with British Army of the Rhine. He then served with the Commonwealth Brigade in Malaysia during the Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation. He commanded 12th Light Air Defence Regiment in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, for which he was awarded the DSO, and later commanded 19th Airportable Brigade. He went on to be Vice-Chief of the Defence Staff in the late 1980s and then Chief of the Defence Staff in the aftermath of the Gulf War. He subsequently became Chair of the Military Committee of NATO in the mid-1990s. He was ennobled in the 1996 Birthday Honours, being created a life peer and retired from the House of Lords in 2016. He was Chancellor of Cranfield University. For many years Dick Vincent was a Governor of the School and on his retirement from the Board was made an Emeritus Governor. He was also an inspirational Past President of the OA Society. His portrait hangs in the School Dining Hall.

At this time of the year, we tend to reflect on events during the past twelve months and indeed this has been a busy year.
The OA Society Regional spring lunch held in the beautiful countryside of Stroud was well supported as indeed was OA Day in June hosted by Kennedy’s and Martineau’s with over 120 OAs and family attending. At Visitation Day a few weeks later, I met with those students on the cusp of leaving the secure routine and environment of Aldenham, full of apprehension, before venturing out into the larger world.
118 OAs and guests were at this year’s OA Dinner held at the School which meant the Dining Hall was full to capacity with ages ranging from 18 to 95. A splendid evening was kicked off by a drinks reception, followed by a live concert of music and song from current Aldenham students and OAs then a delicious three course Dinner. It was a great opportunity for OAs to catch up with friends old and new.
Last week I was pleased to be part of the Aldenham School Carol Service held in the ancient and majestic St Albans Abbey along with the whole school, parents, teaching staff and a number of OAs. The festive singing, music and readings were a memorable start to Christmas. A few days ago I attended the Presentation of A Level Certificates at the School, the first of its kind, which gave me a good opportunity to reconnect with some of those new OAs who had left Aldenham this summer and reassure them that being a member of the OA Society can be a lifelong journey.
There are now some 5,000 OAs spread over 150 countries and through the newly revamped website, this will help bring you all closer together.
It is evident that Aldenham can and does bring out the best in its students in helping them excel in their chosen talents and career path and indeed they are very fortunate to have those opportunities offered by the School to put them in good stead for the future. It makes me proud to be part of the Aldenham community.
I would like to take this opportunity of wishing you and your family best wishes for the Season, health and happiness for a prosperous 2019.

The Class of 2018 returned to Aldenham on Monday 17 December to celebrate their A Level success with their parents, friends and teachers.
The evening began with a short, formal presentation, when the Headmaster spoke about each individual student, highlighting their distinct characters and the valuable contribution they had made to Aldenham during their schooldays. He presented them with their certificates, to rousing applaud and then former Head Girl 2017/18, Phoebe Altman, Paull’s & Ridings 2011-18, said a few words on behalf of her year group. She expressed surprise at how much they miss Aldenham, even the buildings! President of the OA Society, James James-Crook (McGill’s 1968-72) took to the floor to welcome new members of the unique organisation that they now belong to. He highlighted the benefits of networking with people who have the Aldenham connection and shared his own experience of time at the School, which inspired his choice of further education and eventually his successful and enjoyable career as a fine art consultant and auctioneer.
After the presentation drinks were served and there was a chance to mingle like old times, but without the pressure of getting back to class or preparing for exams. It was a very special occasion and set the scene for a new Aldenham tradition.
Happy Christmas everyone and all the best for 2019.

19 November 2018
It was a full house this year for the Annual OA Dinner, with 118 guests taking their places for a very enjoyable evening.
The drinks reception and pre-dinner concert in The Wells Centre got the evening off to a great start, with students and OAs demonstrating a variety of musical talents. Many thanks and well done to the students -Joon Han (M2012-Present), Seul Han (P2013-Present) on violin and viola, James Gray (L2017-present) who played the electric organ, which was a gift to the School from John Apthorp (P1949-53) and Jemima Wax (P&R2015-Present) who accompanied herself on the piano to a song she composed. Congratulations also to Alice Erman (P2005-12) for her solo singing performances and the lovely duet with Vicki Garson (P2010-12). This popular aspect of the event is an excellent way to highlight the benefits an Aldenham education and may become a regular aspect of the event.
The Dining Hall looked resplendent in red and black, with poppy displays, prepared by Paul Spencer (aka Potts) (CR1985-Present), to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War. This was not a sombre occasion though and as the guests took their places the air was filled with friendly chatter, until heads were bowed for the School Grace, expertly delivered by Robin Chaventre (M1949-52).
A delicious three course dinner was served and thoroughly enjoyed, judging by the empty plates. Afterwards the Headmaster, James Fowler welcomed OAs back to Aldenham and commented on the warm and friendly atmosphere of this annual get together back at the School. He was particularly delighted to see the wide mix of ages from 18 to 96, with everyone getting on so well and enjoying themselves. He then invited Geoff Furber (SHO1970-74) to address the gathering as the founder of Ripple Africa, a charity that Aldenham has developed a valuable partnership with over the last ten years.
Ripple Africa was also represented at the dinner by Liz Furber, Nikki Luxford and special guest, Force Ngwira. Force is the Country Director and a finalist in the Tusk Conservation Awards for 2018. Between them, Geoff and Force gave an insight into the work they are doing to protect the environment and improve lives in Malawi through the charity.
The President of the OA Society, James James-Crook (M1968-72), finalised the proceedings by thanking everyone involved in the organisation and success of this event and other OA activities throughout the year. He also expressed his appreciation to all those who have supported the valuable OA Mentoring programme and he encouraged others to share their life experiences through this scheme if they can. He emphasised that the recently updated OA Society website is an excellent way to keep in touch and to follow the latest news from the School and the OA Society.
The date for the Annual Dinner 2019 will be announced in the New Year and we can look forward to another grand affair.
18 October 2018
Geoffrey Prall (SHE1936-40) and Philip Osmond (P1938-43), were both present at the Consecration of the Aldenham School Chapel on 8 October 1938 and they were special guests at the 80th Anniversary celebration held on Monday 15 October 2018. Other guests included the Chair of Governors, Trevor Barton (K1971—75), President of the OA Society, James James-Crook (M1968-72), two former school Chaplains, The Revd Canon Andrew Stead (CR1994-2013) and The Revd Dan Bond (CR2007-11), Archdeacon Jonathan (Archdeacon for St Albans and an Aldenham school governor). The Rt Rvd Dr Alan Smith, the Lord Bishop of St Albans led and preached at this wonderful celebration.
The service started with a hearty rendition of Lord of the Years, after which The Bishop welcomed everyone to this special service. The Headmaster gave a brief history of the School Chapel, reminding everyone that this is the third School Chapel and is still at the centre of our school community. The Junior Choir gave a wonderful rendition of Sing of the Lord’s Goodness. Trevor Barton read the same Bible passage that was read at the original service, (Matt 22:34-40), about the Greatest Commandment.
One of the highlights of the service was when two of the youngest pupils, Head Boy and Head Girl of the Junior House, Martineau’s, led the OAs, Geoffrey Prall and Philip Osmond out of the Chapel. Seeing the time span of the Chapel represented in this way was particularly moving.
