Knighton House Jubilee Celebrations

Knighton House Jubilee Celebrations took place at the school on Saturday 19th September 2015.

September 2015 is a very special month for Knighton House School in Dorset as it celebrates 65 years. Last weekend the school welcomed back over 200 former pupils; girls had travelled from all around the world to be part of the day. All ages were represented with an Old Knightonian who was at the school in its first term to girls who left recently. As well as former pupils there were former Heads, members of staff and the founder’s son, Christopher Booker, who gave a wonderful talk.

After a service at a packed Durweston Church everyone enjoyed the wonderful September weather; picnics were enjoyed in the beautiful grounds, there were tours of the school and girls chatted, reconnected and reminisced over traditional Knighton House flapjacks and chocolate cracknel. Current pupils performed some wonderful ballet, played hockey matches on the all-weather pitch and the hilarious annual Knighton House pet show kept many entertained.

One Old Knightonian commented “It was such a memorable day and there was that uniquely joyful atmosphere that Knighton always seems to provide. It was great to be back in a school I loved and where I have so many fantastic memories and lifelong friends from”.
