OVs- Past, Present and Future

Queen’s Council OVs

Following up from the news a few weeks ago (see here) about OVs Kate Wilson-Smith (née Lumsdon) (E 85-87) and Edward Cumming (Br 90-01) being appointed to the Queen’s Council, we were delighted to be sent this photo of Kate in her wig and gown. Kate said, "We had the formal swearing in day on Monday amid blizzards at Westminster.  It was all rather surreal!"

We were also really pleased to see that Ed was featured in last week’s Worcester News as he is the youngest successful applicant ever to be appointed as a QC.  



From Worcester to Tokyo

It was wonderful to have Sofia Giugno (Ch 11-16) come back to visit King’s on 26th February during her holidays. Following a gap-year teaching English in Japan, Sofia is now studying at Waseda University in Tokyo and she kindly came and spoke to the L6 Spanish pupils about her experience taking a gap-year and about what it is like to study abroad. Sofia also had a tour of School and got a chance to catch up with lots of her former teachers. 





Calling OV Historians!

The School is going to produce a book to commemorate the end of World War 1 in November this year. The book is to include the names and details of all the old boys who appear on the two school memorials for both World War 1 and 2. It is felt that this would provide a fitting tribute to those young men who died for their country during the 20th century. The project is already quite well advanced and the idea has the financial backing of the Old Vigornian’s Committee. We would like to hear from anybody who has any information about the men on the memorials, or who may be able to help us locate friends or relatives of the fallen. We would particularly like to obtain photographs and any personal details someone might have. If you can help please contact Ms Harriet Patrick in the school archive or send her an email at
