Great Marlow School celebrates 50 years

| |

Students, staff and governors both past and present are all invited to join in the celebrations surrounding the school’s birthday.

Crowne Plaza will be host to the main event on July 16th an evening of entertainment which goes from 19.00 to late.

The black tie Ball will be a fantastic experience; a ticket will give guests the opportunity to have drinks on arrival as well as a 3 course buffet and wine.

Thanks to a substantial amount of sponsorship money, Great Marlow School can now offer a reduced rate for the ticket from £50.00 to £30.00 each.

So, what are you waiting for? Get a ticket before they go. Email: Or telephone: 01628 495849. Cheques need to be made payable to Great Marlow School and sent in for the attention of Mrs Liz Phillips.

Of course, the current students will be doing their own thing to celebrate the anniversary on Wednesday 20th; each school year will be performing activities that represent the school’s 50 year history. Former students and staff can tour the school at 9am or 10 am or 11am (booking by phone in advance) in the morning and take a peek at the school and the on-going presentations.

Marlovians are sure to notice the balloon release in the afternoon of 20 July. Students have the chance to purchase a black or red balloon, which represents school colours, and see it fly high over the valley. (A proportion of the sales will go toward a charity).

The brand new 50th birthday logo, designed to commemorate the event, will also be on display in the school for the next year. Guests and students won’t be able to miss the 12ft ‘digital mosaic’ that will be made up of miniaturised pictures of every student.

Finally, the school will have a permanent homage to the year with a raised flower bed in the shape of the new logo, with a copper feather standing out amongst the seasonal flowers.

Great Marlow School is clearly dedicated to its students and its history; if you are part of its past or present in any way send your stories and pictures to the Headteacher, Mrs Wilson, via her PA, Liz Phillips.
