In January 2009, Mr Andrew Dimsey and his three sons, descendents of the Master of the Lancasterian Schoolroom 200 years ago, visited the British Schools from their home in Australia.

March saw the arrival of a wonderful new sand desk for the Lancasterian schoolroom, built by Timberworks UK Limited in Pirton.

Half term activity was a World War II day, and visitors played the part of evacuees from London and wrote home to their parents, before attempting a lesson from Joy Hall to add up in pounds, shillings and pence.

Around 200 visitors filled the playground on Bank Holiday Monday for maypole dancing and a display by the Offley Morris Men.

In July, the Wilshere Dacre School in Fishponds Road celebrated their 80 years in Hitchin, and the British Schools was able to help the pupilsstudy their history with documents and photographs from the archives.
