Old Paludians Annual Reunion 2016


UCGS – Mrs Mercedes Hernández Estrada

Mrs Mercedes Hernandez Estrada, the Principal of UCGS, has recently written to all Old Paludians. Her letter may be accessed at:


The OPA Reunion 2016 was held on Saturday 9 July 2016 from 11:00-17:30 in the Sixth Form Centre, Upton Court Grammar School, Lascelles Road, Slough. This is the new building where the former tennis courts were. Whilst there is car parking available next to the Sixth Form Centre, it is being used to hold building materials for the impending redevelopment plans – so there will be no parking available in our previous parking places.
