The first years spent Friday afternoon learning more about the history of the School. Following an introductory talk from school archivist, Mrs Wearne, they split in to tutor groups and walked into town to visit Abingdon Museum, St Nicolas' Church, St Helen's Church and the site of the old schoolroom. They saw the tomb of John Roysse, who reendowed the School in 1563, learned about the somewhat bizarre Abingdon tradition of bun throwing, and found out that a fragment of Abingdon Abbey is now part of the wall above the fireplace in the Headmaster's house!
