2017 Silver Jubilee Reunion


On Friday 7th July, 1992 Leavers returned to school for their 25 Year reunion from as far afield as Geneva, Zurich and Yorkshire.

"More than 20 of us gathered for an hilarious evening of catching up, gossip and trips down memory lane. We were able to sit outside, reminiscing and enjoying the balmy weather, whilst looking at the old buildings we'd known so well and marvel at the new.  Dinner was delicious and our ensuite bedrooms were a far cry from sharing dormitories way back when" !

Sara-Jane Farewell
24th June 2017

On Saturday  24th  June we bid a very fond farewell to Mrs Sara-Jane Socha after 32 years at St Mary’s Calne.  Over 80 members of the St Mary’s community including old girls, former parents,  current tutees and Sixth Form Historians congregated in top hall for drinks and canapés to toast her in her retirement and wish her well .  Fernande Van Schelle ( 2000 Leaver) spoke extremely touchingly on behalf of the CGA. Please see her speech attached click here.

Reunion for leavers of 1986 7 & 8

12th May 2017


  On May 12th we held a small reunion in school for leavers from 1986, 7 and 8.  21 old girls congregated for drinks in the oratory library which they all remembered as a UV sitting room and were then given tours of the school by members of the current LVI.  A delicious dinner was served in the school dining room with not a pig bin in sight.  It was an exceptionally buzzy evening – many of the guests had not set foot in Calne since they left the school, and were astounded by all the changes.  As one 1986 leaver said in her thank you email,  “ It was an absolute joy to see everyone again after 30 years and the tour of the school was the most amazing mixture of nostalgia and awe at the school's incredible facilities”.  Over half the guests then continued the revelries with an after party at the Bowood Hotel Shelburne Bar.
