Were you in the upper 6th form at Nicholas Hawksmoor School, Borehamwood, in 1977; or in the fifth year in 1975? You would have been amongst the last intake at 11 years old, in September 1970, to Borehamwood Grammar School, or amongst the first intake at 13 when it became an upper school.

If you were there, then put this date - Saturday 9th July 2022 - in your diary, and come along to our 45th Anniversary Reunion in 2022. We have been meeting every five years since 1977 on the second Saturday in July. There is currently some discussion in our Facebook Group as to whether we should meet more frequently than every five years, so please check, in case we alter the date.
45th Anniversary Reunion in 2022
Saturday 9th July 2022 - check here or on Facebook for the venue and time.
I run an e-mailing list, on which reminders are posted from time to time. Contact me via caves.org.uk/gibson/ if you want to be added to the list.
We also have a Facebook Group, hawksmoor77, which you can join. If you are not familiar with Facebook you can read this guide.
Please note, though, that both the list and the group are intended primarily for people in our year at Nicholas Hawksmoor (and those who had close ties to our year) they are not intended to be for general school reunions.
