Old Delphinian News


A message from Ophelia 12th May 2021

Wonderful News!  We are going to go ahead with the Fifty Year Reunion Celebration on Sunday 4 July 2021 at midday!  Please, please spread the news!  It will be a scaled down affair from the event we originally planned for 2020 but that leaves more time to talk to old friends.  Please bring a picnic lunch to eat in the Hinton House gardens and urge your classmates (or fellow Old D teachers) to come as well.  We hope to have some very exciting news to share with you on the day.

Please contact Kate Spooner at headspa@dolphinschool.com to reserve your place!
