Ex-Student visits after 66 years

17/05/17

In an idea to develop links with ex-students in order to be able to share their experiences of university and career paths with our current students, Head of Sixth Form at The North School, Mrs Matthews made contact with some previous students.

One response came from a Dr Peter Frost (photo attached) who at the age of 81 is the oldest known ex-student to have visited the school some 66 years after completing his studies.

On a visit to the school yesterday, Dr Frost was shown around the site by Mrs Marples (Social Sciences & Law teacher) and Dr Frost could recall the school playing fields and the two original buildings, the Essella and Mabledon blocks with the same stained glass windows.

Mr Robbins (Sixth Form) then sat and listened to Dr Frost’s experience of school, what it was like to be at The North School during the war and learnt how Dr Frost had gone on to study Dentistry and ran his own practises. Dr Frost now delivers lectures and is very keen on tennis – still receiving coaching lessons at the age of 81. He has also had papers published in Dentistry in a number of journals and has informed the school that he would like to visit again to support any way possible and to see if there are any photos within the school archives during his years of study.

It was an absolute privilege to have Dr Frost at the school and we hopefully look forward to keeping him updated with our progress.
