Wycombe Abbey Seniors’ Day 2023

On a very sunny Saturday 10 June, Wycombe Abbey was the perfect setting to host Seniors and Honorary Seniors for the annual Seniors’ Day event.

Guests were welcomed with an appropriately refreshing drink given the hot weather and had the chance to greet each other and members of Wycombe Abbey staff and pupils, including the new Head Girl Team, before heading in to the beautifully decorated marquee. Mrs Jo Duncan, Headmistress, opened proceedings with a delightful speech and marked the arrival of lunch by saying Grace.

We enjoyed two more speeches from Mrs Felicity Conway, Chair of the Seniors’ Consultative Committee and myself. Following this, guests had the opportunity to visit their former boarding house, see the completed Big School refurbishment and purchase Wycombe Abbey merchandise from the School Shop. Guests also enjoyed being shown around the School by some of our current pupils and hearing how life at Wycombe Abbey is for girls today.

After the trip down memory lane, it was back to the marquee for a final time to enjoy tea and cake before saying goodbye. As one guest remarked, “Thank you so much for the lovely time on Saturday afternoon. It was a delicious meal, perfect weather and such a lovely setting in the marquee. There were so many friends and colleagues with whom to exchange news and good wishes. A very happy and delightful way to celebrate my years at Wycombe.”

We look forward to hosting more Seniors’ events this year. For more information email [email protected] or visit the Seniors website.
