In June 2017, the School held a special commemoration of the life of Sir Roger Young, former Headmaster/Principal (1958–1985). A packed auditorium listened to some wonderful music and singing by pupils, and enjoyed an incredible performance by former pupil and international opera singer, Brian Bannatyne-Scott (Class of 1973).
We also heard from various former pupils and former staff who regaled us with their memories of Sir Roger as a teacher, Headmaster and friend. The incredible legacy of his time at Watson’s was celebrated, most notably his introduction of S3 Projects in 1963 which lives on today, and is still regarded as one of the high points of a Watson’s pupil’s time at School.
Following the main event the guests enjoyed some of the School’s wonderful catering and reminiscing with the Young family.
