OC Day cancelled

We are sorry to announce that for the second year OC Day will not take place.

Although the Covid restrictions are gradually being relaxed, the School are having to plan and work within social distancing guidelines set by government and we are as yet unsure what post June 21st will look like. Planning for the combined OC/Speech Day takes several weeks and changes have already had to be made for current Cranleighans and their parents.

“We have had no parents on site until this week and the Fourth Form parents have never been welcomed formally or spent any time together,” headmaster Martin Reader explained. “Therefore we are having to use as many spaces as possible to ensure we welcome and look after everyone safely. This puts a stretch on resources and I am afraid this means that we are not going to have the capacity to host an OC day on Speech Day as normal this year. I am sorry that those of you who were intending to come will be disappointed for the second year in a row.

“However, we will look to host another occasion during next year, in addition to the over 70s reunion, and we are considering organising something around the Gower weekend. I will keep you posted.”

The Old Cranleighan Society is available to assist any year group who would like to organise their own reunions away from the School.
