100 YEARS of Purley Boys - REUNION JUNE 21ST 11.30am

What a good time was had. Over 100 ex Purley Boys joined together for a lunch and a tour of the new Coulsdon College. This has been built on the site of the old School and at £41m it is breathtaking to behold.

There were wonderful speeches from
Brett Freeman - the new Principal
Mike Bonsier - Former Old Boy and Governor
Derek Akers - Former Headmaster
Alan Girling - Former Pupil

We were shown around the College by some of the current students. All of them were a credit to the College. 

There will be photos and videos published soon.
