A reminder that you are cordially invited to the 2020 Annual Reunion to be held on Saturday 21st March 2020 at Upton Court Grammar School, Lascelles Road, Slough SL3 7PR from 12pm to 5pm. We hope you will be available on that date, that you will make a note in your diary to attend and that you will invite as many of your friends as possible. Last years event was very well attended and enjoyed. A report may be found on the website at

In a change from last year, and to make the occasion even more sociable, we propose to offer a traditional afternoon cream-tea comprising sandwiches, savoury and sweet items. There will also be tea and biscuits available for those would prefer (following an exhaustive investigation, the causes of last year’s biscuit shortage have been addressed and the situation rectified).
