250 Anniversary

250th Anniversary


250th Anniversary

Wilson’s Hospital School opened its doors for the first time on 17th April 1761. In 2011 the school will have operated continuously for 250 years on the same site and in the same buildings. This is a unique aspect of our school. The unbroken link with former generations of pupils gives the school a special sense of character.

In 2011 the school plans significant celebrations to mark the 250th Anniversary. Functions planned included:

• Special Chapel Service
• Founders & School Establishment Memorial Day
• Publication of the School History
• Past Pupils Events
• Special Events for the current pupils
