The latest news from the Old Pauline Club

June 2016 - Old Pauline Newsletter
Welcome to the June issue of the Old Pauline Club eNews
We look forward to welcoming many OPs back to this year’s Annual Dinner on 7 July where life peer and fertility expert, Lord Winston, will be speaking. This event is predicted to have the highest turnout in recent years, so do book your ticket before 23 June to secure your place. 

In this month’s newsletter there is an update from St Paul's High Master and we also highlight two prestigious OP appointments: Sir Terence Etherton (1965-68) as Master of the Rolls and Sir David Brewer (1955-58) as Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter.

We are always interested in what’s going on in the OP community, so please feel free to email us anytime with your own news, or that of any other OP we should be celebrating.
New Master of the Rolls

Sir Terence Etherton (1965-68) has succeeded Lord Dyson as Master of the Rolls, a position that puts him at the head of the civil judiciary in England and Wales. Currently Chancellor of the High Court, Sir Terence’s promotion was announced from Downing Street on 26 May. He will be outranked only by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd. Read more...

A Message from the High Master - Initial Steps Towards an Open Access School

The attendance at the 30 Year Reunion for 1986 Leavers last Friday was excellent.  Almost half of the year group returned to St Paul’s to reunite, reconnect and reminisce.  Afterwards one OP commented that it was ‘amazing how much and how little people change’.  I hope that at the end of their visit the guests and other OPs felt the same about the School: the site has changed, and is changing, dramatically, but the fundamental values of academic excellence, a strong preparation for later life and developing friendships within a meritocratic environment remain unchanged.
The inaugural whole School Summer Festival on 25 June is an attempt to capture something of the spirit of the 500th Anniversary celebration in 2009, and, if successful, to replicate it annually.  It is a signal of our intention to foster a better sense of community among the School’s key constituent parts: boys, parents, staff, Old Paulines and governors.  The concept seems to have struck a chord, since all four thousand free tickets have now been claimed.

Record Year for US Universities

This year 29 Paulines were accepted to US colleges and universities, increased from 21 admitted in 2015. Seven of the eight Ivy League colleges admitted Paulines in 2015, but in 2016 all eight have admitted students.

Several colleges admitted more than one student which is a very positive result considering the fierce international competition. Read more...

1st XI Cricket enjoys its most successful first half of the season since records began

The 1st XI have recorded their most successful start to the domestic season in the School's history, winning six out of seven fixtures. Notable victories have come against St John`s Leatherhead, Merchant Taylors’, Dulwich College and, most recently, KCS Wimbledon.

School cricket looks to be in good health for the future with Junior Cricket also excelling. U14A XI is particularly strong this year with wins against Cranleigh, Dulwich College and KCS Wimbledon. Harrow awaits in the semi-final of ECB County Cup. Read more...
