The latest news from the Old Pauline Club

September 2016 - Old Pauline Newsletter
Welcome to the September issue of the Old Pauline Club eNews
As one academic year finishes and another begins here at St Paul’s we would like to welcome the 193 new Old Paulines who left St Paul’s in June to the community and congratulate them on their A Level results. 42% of the 2016 Leavers grades were at A*, 84% at A* or A and 98% A*, A or B – a wonderful success and a great show of the hard work of the year group.

We would also like to congratulate all those who graduated from university this summer. Do let us know how you did and what you plan to do next – it would be great to hear from you.
As we kick off the autumn term we announce a busy and varied event schedule, please check out the Diary Dates below.

OP success at Edinburgh Fringe - Family Voices and Victoria Station
Mr Anthony took a double bill of Harold Pinter’s Family Voices and Victoria Station to the Edinburgh Fringe with his theatre company Backspin for a week long run. The production starred OPs Adam Goodbody, Tom Ames, Luke Cullen and Robbie Fraser. They played to several sell-out houses and received four star reviews.

The Old Pauline Association Football Club is looking for new players to join this season. 

With four 11-a-side teams to play for, it doesn't matter if you played 1st XI for school or haven't kicked a ball since 5th form - we'd love to have you. There is a standard to suit everyone.  

The Club comprises over 100 OPs from various generations and guarantees high quality pitches and referees.

If you are interested in coming along to any of our games or have any general questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

It is with much regret that we notify the deaths of the following Old Paulines. Our sympathy goes to their families and friends.

Sir Antony Jay CVO (1941-48) – 21 August 16
The Rev David R (Roly) Bain (1967-71) – 11 August 16

Correction: In July’s eNews we incorrectly listed Bryan Robson’s dates as Head of English (1970-1994). Bryan in fact was Head of English from 1970-89 and then Director of Drama 1989-94. Please accept our apologies for this error.

Obituaries are published in the Old Pauline News magazine.
