The celebrations for the 25th anniversary of the formation of the Abingdon Foundation got underway on Friday with a special cake cutting ceremony held at Abingdon Prep School.
Guests (including former Josca’s Head, Chris Davies), Governors, staff and pupils heard from Chair of Governors, Professor Mike Stevens about the very unique relationship enjoyed by Abingdon Prep and Senior Schools. He spoke about the significance of the term ‘foundation’ – both in terms of partnership and within the context of how it prepares young people for their future. Head, Craig Williams, then invited two pupils – the sons of former Josca’s and Abingdon School students – to cut the cake.
After enjoying afternoon tea, celebrations continued with a 10 a side cricket match between the Senior and Prep Schools, observed by families within the school community who brought along their own picnics. The match was good spirited but competitive – happily for the Prep School, they won the day with some superb cricket skills. Howzat!
