Alumni Groups


In the early days of Bretton Hall as an educational institution,  one of the annual rituals was that of the formal, whole-group photograph of students and academic staff.  It’s not clear when this ceremonial occasion came to an end, but, as numbers increased, the group photographs became too cumbersome.

The earliest photograph, taken in summer 1950, shows the first batch of students who joined the College in September, 1949.

When alumni become aware of the few images currently available,  perhaps more group photographs will emerge from almost forgotten collections.   If you have an image to donate, please inform us through the contact page.
