I have set up a new website which is www.hbsoba.co.uk. In future all information will be avialable from that site. I do hope that the rather weird person who keeps applying with gobbldygook will discontinue the habit !! I hope you enjoy the new site Regards, Peter
The Association's current president is Tony Buckland. Tony ( Widge) was at the school from 1957 to 1965. Before retiring he was the CEO of Deutsche Bank's trust company, dealing with international finance transactions. He now acts as a mentor to individuals within charities.
We have an exciting afternoon in prospect on 17th July at the school. The Old boys' Association is holding an afternoon of quick cricket , anyone can play and bring your own team ! Details will be announced nearer the time. There will be a barbeque and, we hope that the PTA will provide a bar for us as well. Given some sunshine, we have all the ingredients for a wonderful day. The underlying theme is to rise some money towards refurbishing the Cricket pavilion, for the use of the Scouts. Stan Rainbow would turn in his grave at the thought of leaving the Scout hut but, in these times of 'elf and safety' it is no longer safe to use. Please put the date in your diary and more will follow in the Bulletin.
A Brief History
From its foundation by John Mattock in 1639 to “teach and instruct and trayne up the inhabitants of Hitchin”, the School has moved to anticipate the needs of the future while always striving to maintain valued traditions. Old Boys include captains of industry, engineers, familiar faces on television and international sportsmen.
