Old Princethorpians Virtual Pub Quiz

This year’s OPs London Meet was due to take place next week on Friday 15 May in French restaurant, Balthazar’s Le Petit Salon Privé in London's popular Covent Garden. Sadly, for obvious reasons the restaurant is currently closed and the event as it was originally planned cannot go ahead.

However, we are still keen to have a gathering, albeit a virtual one, and will be holding an OPs Quiz Night on the same evening instead.

Hosted by Headmaster Ed Hester over Zoom, there will be a range of questions including some relating to the College if you would like to test your wits. Players are welcome to play as individuals or you could form a team with some OP friends. Again simply go to Princethorpe Connect below to register your interest, message us on Facebook or email The fun will kick off at 8.00pm, with two quiz sessions, and an interval so you can grab a drink!

We won’t miss out completely on our trip to Covent Garden as the event at Balthazar has been provisionally moved to Friday 5 March 2021, so please put that date in your diary now!

House Activities Afternoon

Friday 22 May - 2.00pm to 3.45pm

To bring this first half of the Trinity Term to a conclusion and celebrate the end of assessment week, the afternoon of Friday 22 May will be set aside for a special House Activities Afternoon.

The House Activities Team will be hosting activities for all pupils to participate in in their Tutor Group in order to earn those valuable House points.

The event will start with a quiz covering some of the House events which we were due to have taken place this half of the Trinity Term and then Tutor Groups will have some House competitions and challenges to work together collaboratively on.
