Seaford on Tour round-up

Oxford gathering a great success

We would like to thank all the Old Seafordians who came from far and wide to last weekend’s ‘Seaford on Tour’ gathering in Oxford and made it such a success.

Former students descended on the atmospheric Rhodes House in central Oxford to catch up with Seaford teachers and share memories of their time at the school.

It was wonderful to welcome recent leavers and some guests who had attended Seaford in the 1950s and 1960s, such as Robert Atkin (1956-60) who said it was great to hear about the new developments at Seaford. Graham Kew (1966-70), Roger Smithies (1963-67) and Ken Rumens (1960-63) said the gathering was very enjoyable.

Matthew Pitteway, Director of Boarding and Head of UCAS, said: “It was so nice to see so many Old Seafordians in Oxford for the second of our Seaford on Tour events. The venue was absolutely fantastic and the opportunity to meet and talk to so many former students from many different vintages was great. It was also lovely to hear so many saying that their time at Seaford had had such a positive impact on their lives.”

Martine MacKenzie-Foster, Assistant Head of Year 13, said: “All age groups enjoyed reminiscing about their time at Seaford and discussed the diverse range of career paths they have pursued since leaving. The event presented an invaluable opportunity for the younger generation of Old Seafordians to establish connections with alumni with more life experience, in the hope of expanding their professional networks for their future careers.”

Seaford recently launched its Careers Network campaign, encouraging Old Seafordians to sign up to be mentors. If you’re able to give a few minutes of your time every now and then to help former Seaford College students seeking careers advice, we’d love to hear from you. To register your interest and the type of help you could offer, please click HERE and complete the short form.

We are planning more ‘Seaford on Tour’ gatherings, so watch this space.
