A Message From The Headmaster

Dear Old Campbellian

In this challenging and difficult time, as we are forced to separate from each other,  we cherish more than ever our Campbell Community.  As a College, our classrooms may be closed but the learning continues as pupils engage in our online learning programme. Teachers are missing their pupils, our beautiful building lies empty and we reflect on a year that will end for our boys without the time honoured traditions of Speech Day, Prize Giving, Leavers’ BBQ’s and more.  
 
As these things are taken away from us suddenly, we remember their importance.  Even the cancellation of exams has left a sadness and disappointment for all those affected. However, these losses are a small price to pay to support the drive to ‘stay at home’ and save lives and our thoughts are with all those directly affected by Covid 19 across the world.
 
As well as supporting our pupils and their families, the College is doing what it can to support the cause -  as it always has.  Reminiscent of our role in WWII as a hospital,  we have offered our boarding accommodation to key workers in the NHS and our teachers continue to provide care for our key worker families.  We have donated all our protective science equipment to the NHS and will continue to look for other ways we can help the wider community. 
 
So too do we think of our Old Campbellian Community at this time and especially those who are vulnerable, elderly or alone.  As a community we know that our Old Campbellians will stay connected with each other during this period of isolation and would encourage them to do so via The Old Campbellian Society website www.oldcampbellians.co.uk
 
Please stay safe over Easter and the coming weeks and do stay connected.
 
Kind regards
 
Robert Robinson
Headmaster,
