I was offered a chance to look around the school premises in Orpington, where I spent my last year having helped with the move from Tooley St. (the street name is a corruption of St. Olave’s). Unfortunately, it was something of a whistle-stop tour, so I couldn’t take many photos. This is the board at the entrance to the premises.
The facilities are first-rate. The music rooms, libraries, etc. are really impressive. The swimming pool is being converted (filled in) for other uses. And of course, the playing fields are more than adequate.
In the assembly hall, there are relics from the old Stogs. It was very dark and my photos contain reflections of the flash but I couldn’t resist this one.
This is the portrait of Queen Elizabeth I familiar to all Stogs boys.
