OPs meet in Manchester

OPs, OP President and current teaching staff at the Gas Works Brew Bar in ManchesterThe inaugural OP Manchester Drinks held at The Gas Works Brew Bar on Tuesday 3 March attracted a good crowd of over 20 OPs and staff with leavers ranging from 1958 to 2019.

OP President, Trevor Loten (70-80) hosted the evening along with colleagues from Pocklington School including Toby Seth (Headmaster), Patrick Dare, Doc Dyson (Former staff, 88-18) and Rachel Dare.

Amongst those attending were two former Head Boys: Henry Foster (09-19) and Andrew Rose (86-93); Will Wilson (51-58) and John Goose (57-64) were the most senior OPs at the event and the largest cohort were the 2019 leavers.

Trevor Loten commented: “What a fabulous event and great to see so many OPs from such a broad range of leaving years mixing and socialising together – some fantastic networking going on which is what the OP network is all about.”

Henry Foster said: “It’s been a really good evening and I hope there’ll be another one next year!”

It is safe to say that Manchester will definitely be on the list for future OP drinks events!
