Were you a pupil or a member of staff at Southampton Grammar School for Girls? The Southampton College for Girls or Hill College, Southampton?
There will be a Grand Reunion for all on October 1st 2022 at Richard Taunton V1th form College, Hill Lane to reminisce and to launch a new college prize and bursary in honour of two of Southampton’s former educational leaders: Miss May Louisa Vale, Headmistress 1955-1975 and Miss Mavis Kingston, Principal 1975 to 1984.
This celebration is being held in the main assembly hall on what would have been the ‘Girls’ Grammar School Birthday’ and will be a ticketed event. Tickets will be on sale from hill.lane.reunion@gmail.com in the New Year.
A well-illustrated book has been published, tracking the history of the Southampton Grammar School for Girls from its inception in 1907 until it became one of the world’s first Vlth form colleges, and the only ever all girl post 16 open-access college.
The book can be purchased in person on the day of the reunion for £15 or obtained ahead of time for £20 to include p&p from elly.babbedge@hotmail.co.uk. All proceeds will go into the Vale-Kingston memorial prize fund which will reward students who have made the most of the opportunities offered to them at the college and have exceeded expectations.
Refreshments will be available and displays of photographs and artefacts will be on show. Please email Elly if you have any items to lend or memories to share.
