Bob Longman

Bob shares memorable anecdotes from his five happy years as a boarder during the 'Back to Fan Court' reunion in October 2023:

What comes to your mind when you think of your school days?

Sleighing in Winter of 1963 – so much snow in the Shrubbery.

Who was your favourite teacher and why?

Ray Willcox – legend, inspirational sports (cricket) teacher. 

Favourite moment you remember the most?

Launching a glider off the top (roof!!) of the mansion (without staff supervision!)

How do you think your school years have shaped you into the person you are today?

According to Janet (another reunion attendee), beautifully! But, seriously moral courage has been really important, always.”
