After our events we often receive messages of thanks, so we thought that we would share some of these with you to give you a flavour of what you can expect at a Bradfield event.
Summer Bradfield Day 2019
‘It was a very special day and we had a lovely time. As we arrived a charming young Bradfieldian from Hillside greeted us and directed us to the Sports Centre for parking. The welcome drink and the Headmaster’s introduction were much appreciated. Then a delightful pupil took us on a fascinating summer stroll, for me the highlights were the Design Centre, the Sports Centre and the refurbished boarding houses were certainly more luxurious than the hotel we were to stay in later! Stepping back into Hillside was however as if I were a time traveller, finding myself in a previous world.
It is a remarkable achievement that Bradfield College has produced a classical play in ancient Greek once every three years since 1882. We both very much enjoyed the polished and professional production and I particularly admired the costumes and the chorus singing. I would like to thank everyone who worked so hard and so well to make it such a pleasant and memorable day, especially for arranging such perfect weather!

‘A brief, but heartfelt, thank you for yesterday. The weather was so kind to us and it was lovely to see the College doing so well in all regards. A special thank you for showing me around the College, I really appreciated the solo tour. Having seen the Greek play every year it has been staged since 1967, I can say that this was one of the most entertaining, if short, productions that I have seen. Pass on my congratulations to the production team, they’ve done a great job with a format that really works!’

Tempus Fugit Lunch 2019
‘Thank you for organising such an enjoyable event yesterday. It was great to see Bradfield thriving, setting incredibly high standards. I’m suffering from a dose on nostalgia this morning. Please pass on my thanks for the excellent tour of the school, in fact we went to some places that I hardly ever visited as a pupil! The school still has a very pleasant feel, providing a rounded education in every sense of the word and not just academic prowess. Best wishes and thank you,
Chris Sheldon (C 70-75)
‘My thanks to you and everybody involved for making the Tempus Fugit such a splendid and enjoyable occasion! I was sorry to see such a small (but distinguished!!) contingent from B House – but even so, a great pleasure to meet such long standing and close friends. Bradfield continues to change – what should happen – memories are important, but so also are innovations. It is good to see the College in such good heart, even in these challenging times.
