Springgrovians

I have yet to meet a Springgrovian who does not look back at their time at the school with great fondness. Over the years, Springgrovians have been sent on to their next schools equipped with a love of learning, a happy spirit and a determination to do their best. Many of our Springgrovians have sent their own children to us and are keen to maintain strong ties with the school.

If you are a Springgrovian we are keen to meet you and would ask you to provide us with your contact details. We can then put you on our mailing list and ensure that you receive any news of forthcoming Springgrovian events.

Please get in touch by contacting the school office: office@springgroveschool.co.uk and tell us the year you left and what you have been doing since.

We now have our own Friends of Spring Grove Facebook page. Please

You are invited to visit us at any time in order to see how your school has changed over the years. We hope that you will be delighted to see the new developments since you left and sense the happy ethos that exists. In 2014, we built a new music department and in 2016 we shall be completing a changing room and classroom block development.

In 2008, we celebrated 40 years of education at SG by unveiling a magnificent mosaic created by every member of the school community. The school photograph included at least 100 Springgrovians alongside the present school community. The school has survived through tough fiscal times over the past few years and September 2017 will represent the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the first Spring Grove pupils. We are planning some great events over the course of the next two years and we would be delighted if all Springgrovians played a part in our celebrations.

A significant number of present pupils are sons or daughters of Springgrovians and so we remain a very happy family. I am presently waiting for the first third-generation Springgrovian to emerge!

I have included here some of the ‘Memories’ of our most recent Prep 6, which this year contained children of exceptional ability and character – typical Springgrovians!

Memories

I’ve enjoyed my two years here at Spring Grove. I’ve had some good moments. My best trip was the Hampshire trip because we had lots of fun and It was the last trip we had in Spring Grove. My most embarrassing memory was when Chaucer played Austen in house football and the goal was open and I shot from outside the keeper’s box and missed the goal to let Austen win the game and win house football. My biggest achievement is when I got to the nationals for running in Malvern and IAPS swimming for 25m fly. I went to Kings for the race and I won the heat to get me into the nationals. Then I went to the K2 in Crawley when I came third.

My saddest memory is hearing that I failed the 11+ because I thought my future would be going to the North (a school I was accepted to as I failed)…. But I appealed and got into Norton Knatchbull.

A sad moment in my life is leaving Spring Grove because I will miss my friends and teachers.
