First 'Seaford on Tour' a Great Success

Seaford College alumni from four generations met up in Exeter last month

We would like to thank the Old Seafordians in south-west England for making our first ‘Seaford on Tour’ gathering such a success.

Dozens of former students last month descended on the Southernhay House Hotel in central Exeter to catch up and share memories of their time at Seaford. One former student, John Daniel joined in 1944, before the College had even moved to its postwar home of Lavington Park, near Petworth. “I think the idea of having a ‘Seaford on Tour’ is an excellent initiative,” said John.

Rupert Blackwell, recently Head Boy at the school, said: “I believe the strength of Seaford College is its sense of community and it was very apparent in Exeter. The opportunity to meet and reminisce about shared, yet unique, memories of the College is especially valuable.

“Since the Pandemic this has been the first opportunity to host a get-together, and judging by the quantity of those who attended, Seaford, as ever, holds a cherished place in our memories.”

Lloyd Pocock, who was in Kymes House between 1965 and 1970, said: “It was great to get an update on how things are proceeding with the marketing and promotion of the College in this modern world.”

Matthew Pitteway, Director of Boarding at Seaford said: “The atmosphere was great and everyone I spoke to said how much they enjoyed the event.” Science Teacher Augusta Pitteway said: “I had a great time catching up with the alumni I knew, as well as finding out some more of the history from our more mature alumni.”

We are planning more ‘Seaford on Tour’ gatherings in the next few months, so watch out for news of those!
