BBC Radio Sussex interview Seaford master about his grandfather at The Somme

Thiepval Memorial

Seaford College Head of Humanities, Nick Angier, appeared on Radio BBC Sussex Breakfast show on 1st July 2016.   Nick talked with the host presenter Neil Pringle about his grandfather who was a budding football player (interest from Arsenal football club amongst others) before WW1 and who joined The East Surrey Regiment who were posted to The Somme area.

They went over the top on the morning of 1st July 1916 at 07.30 am encouraged by their Captain Billy Neville who used football as a means of encouragement to go over the top and a way to deter his soldiers’ from considering their certain fate. Nick’s grandfather raised signal flags in full display of The German positions to warn the British artillery to stop bombing their own soldiers in ‘no mans land’, but he was hit with shrapnel which ironically saved his life.  As he laid injured, his entire platoon was killed. Nick also mentions his daughter who has her own big fight against Leukemia, we wish her well.

Old Seafordian Golfers open raises £255 for ‘Help for Heroes’

Tull, Mummery, Farrant with Fox, Stevenson & Ballard waiting22 Old Seafordian golfers rolled up for the third OSGS annual golf day at Leatherhead Golf Club on the northern slopes of the North Downs last Friday.

The undulating topography was deceptive and the layout of the course posed a serious test for all players. There were several tough approaches and dog-legs made even tougher by the 10-15mph northerly wind that punished even slightly errant drives, particularly on the first nine holes. The greens were fast for the time of year, which tested many a putt!

After an enjoyable day’s play, all players welcomed the warmth of the clubhouse (a nippy day it was!), some drinks in the 19th and a hearty meal accompanied by prize-giving and short speeches. The players also raised £255 for ‘Help for Heroes’.

Lest We forget

ww1tabletLRWe will always remember the 17 million people who lost their lives during the Great War and those Old Seafordians who fell. 900,000 British and Colonial Military were tragically lost in conditions they were not prepared for and 2 million more were injured and lived on with honour often not talking at all of their endurances for the rest of their lives.

Our own founder Colonel Savage lost his son at Gallipoli.

The college was based at Eastbourne during The Great War. The image shows the tablet dedicated to those OS who fell which is held in our school chapel and Major Dunlop kindly provided this research with soldiers rank, regiment and location of burial.

Gillian Rees Cycles 250 Miles Alongside Damon Hill Raising Funds for The Halow Project

Damon Hill PRESS RELEASE 8th May 2014

Seaford Prep School, College Raise Funds for Halow cycling 250 miles alongside Damon Hill  Seaford Prep School, Gillian Rees, cycled 250 miles alongside Formula One World Champion Damon Hill, to take part in the Two Boats Cycle to raise money for the halow Project.

Gillian, along with nearly 80 fellow cyclists, set off from Putney Bridge, pedalled to Portsmouth to catch the ferry to St Malo, and cycled onwards to Caen. After a brief pit-stop, they returned to the Channel, took a ferry to Portsmouth and cycled to the finish line at Guildford on Sunday afternoon.

Gillian, is a novice cyclist and showed incredible determination to complete the 250 miles in 48 hrs. She chatted to Damon Hill – who is patron of The Halow Project – during the ride and celebrated the end of the race by having a photo with him. The Two Boats Cycle has been organized to raise money for learning disability charity The Halow Project, which gives support to 16 to 35 year olds.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JZ45H4LnKA

Gillian is dedicated to raising funds for halow and said: “I think the charity is fab. It fills a gap in the community to support young adults with learning difficulties to make their own choices in life”. Gillian now has the cycling bug, she was cycling into the wind most of the way and found the race tough but is very proud of her achievement. She said: “it was tough but it didn’t help that we were running late at the start of the race.I didn’t have time to check my bike and struggled to get up speed for the first 25 miles. When I took a break and checked my bike I realised I’d been cycling with my brake pads on, effectively trying to cycle whilst breaking!! Once this was fixed I was able to average 15 mph.”   Gillian has already raised £1,500 for halow from the ride and the total raised from the event so far stands at £75,000. Donations can be               made through:

virginmoneygiving.com

Seaford College are continuing to support Halow with a Prep School Summer Fair on Saturday 17th May 2014. The fair is being held in Seaford’s beautiful grounds in Lavington Park from 2-4pm and is open to the public. Gillian said: “We look forward to welcoming the wider community to our Summer Fair. There will be Strawberries & Cream, a Pimms tent, an Inflatable Assault Course, Face Painting, Welly Throwing, a plant stall amongst other exciting activities. Families are invited to bring a picnic rug, enjoy some food & drink and have a fun afternoon relaxing and raising funds for halow.”

OLD SEAFORDIANS GOLF SOCIETY OFFICIALLY FORMS

Chichester Golf ClubVery good news from SoOS.  After sounding out members the society has now officially formed and will launch their inaugural event on Sunday 4th May 2014 to be played at Chichester Golf Club.  The society is open to all SoOS members providing they join up and there will also be a non playing social membership.  The school is very pleased to be able to work with the committee of OSGS – Old Seafordian Golf Society in the area of golf development at the college and one of the aims of the society is to encourage younger players to practice and learn the game which is helped by the fact we have our own 9 hole course !

The society have already secured a number of sets of clubs donated by Old Seafordians which will be deployed to the golf manager at the college for use by students.  The positive aspects of the formation of OSGS will hopefully spill over from the current students golf time at Seaford to their future should they choose to benefit from joining the Golf Society when they leave Seaford and to keep in touch and network with their own and other peer groups.  Many parents will acknowledge that leisure sports in general have helped them to network in business and to help nurture client relationships.  One thing we must acknowledge is that the golf ball does not always go where one wants it to !

TV Tenor Sings at Seaford College

britains got talent

 

STAR COMES OUT FOR CHRISTMAS AT SEAFORD

Singing superstar tenor Jonathan Antoine is joining students at Seaford College for their end of term carol concerts.

Jonathan who, together with his singing partner Charlotte Jaconelli, was runner-up in the 2012 series of Britain’s Got Talent, is a pupil of College singing teacher Sara Reynolds, who also teaches at the Junior Royal Academy of Music in London.   He will be singing in the College carol services on Friday, December 13, with both the Chapel Choir and the Senior Choir. His visit comes just seven days after singing alongside one of Britain’s other top tenors, Russell Watson.

Sara said: “As you can imagine, the students are incredibly excited, as many followed his progress on the TV show with enormous enthusiasm once they knew he had been my pupil for the past three years.   “They have subsequently bought the albums – the second of which was released just a month ago – and are desperately keen to meet him.

“Not only will they will get to meet him – and even sing with him – but they will be able to spend time between the services finding out about the life of a young classical tenor thrust into stardom at the tender age of 17, as he was then.  “Jonathan is still only 18 and will be an inspiration to our students, as proof of just what can be achieved if you work hard and chase your dreams.”

Beaten to the winning place in ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ by a dancing dog did not deter Jonathan and Charlotte who were offered a £1m recording deal by Simon Cowell following the series.

Their first album ‘Together’ reached No 5 in the UK Album Charts and was later released in Canada and the USA. The duo are now under contract to Sony Records and their second album ‘Perhaps Love,’ released in October, is already another top 5 best-seller.

 

Rugby Reunion Team of ’74’

John Green recently welcomed the victorious Seaford Rugby team of 1974 back to the college to watch the current Seaford 1st XV, who are also in fine form, for a celebration lunch.

Rob Norton Old Seafordian started his quest to find the team after almost 40 years of leaving Seaford and the turn out considering the time gap was fantastic. Here is a snippet of what Rob had to say when we asked him if the players took the same places for their picture last week as they did for the team photo back in 1974! (see photo at foot of this post)

‘Yes, we had a great day, I don’t think we did sit in the same place, it was talked about and if everyone had been there, I think we would have!’

The lunch in the Headmaster’s study was very good. He was very generous, we were very privileged! There were some references to the fact that the last time Graham White was in there was for a beating from the Head! (This was at a time when corrective punishment was deemed lawful we should add !)

Maurice made a lovely speech and I think his words made us really appreciate what we had achieved and how much it had meant to him and all of us. It was quite an achievement, they were not easy teams to beat. It’s just a shame we hadn’t arranged the reunion before. Some of us hadn’t seen each other since leaving school but we all had very fond memories of our time at Seaford. It seems we have never forgotten our unbeaten season.

New Headmaster John Green: New Broom – Sweeping Changes

Press Release:

John Green, the new Headmaster at Seaford College, has wasted little time in continuing to push the college as one of the most popular providers of independent education in Sussex.

In just two months at the helm of the day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 7 -18, Mr Green has introduced a new management structure, with two new Deputy Heads. Mr James Passam has made a significant impact on the middle school (Years 9 – 11) by reviewing all academic structures and pastoral support procedures, while Mr Will Yates has been reviewing all matters involving Sixth Form education – and it is very clear the pupils are enjoying and benefitting from his vast experience.

The brand new Year 9 enrichment carousel commenced in September and the feedback from both pupils and parents has been excellent. Every pupil in Year 9 will have extra lessons in Music, Dance, Public Speaking, Bush craft, Financial Awareness, Self Defence, Cooking, DIY Skills/Cycle Maintenance and Empathy Skills. This extra wide portfolio of experience is without doubt adding to the development and academic profile of all pupils concerned. Continue reading

Great win for Seaford 1stXV vs Christ’s Hospital

Seaford rugby win against christ's hospital 2013Seaford College prevailed in their West Sussex derby against local rivals from Horsham, Christ’s Hospital, in the NatWest schools cup U18 Cup Round 2, London & South-East Group A.

The home side kicked off into the breeze, and their muscular pack soon started to dominate in the loose, repeatedly getting across the gain line, with prop Byron Clark, No 8 Danny Butlin (a third Chichester H.S. old boy) and second row Oliver Gatland the main ball carriers, and scrum half Christian Disley-May injecting pace. It looked as if Ransom might open the scoring when he appeared to be through from half way, but referee David Sainsbury (fresh from TMO duties at Allianz Park on Sunday) had spotted that the pass from fly half Harry Collins had been forward. Collins then had the chance to get points on the board, but his long range penalty drifted right…
