Prizegiving at Verulam School
My son Tom was invited back to his old school to receive a prize this evening. This is the only state-funded single sex boys' school in St Albans. The wood panelling, academic gowns, rolls of honour on the walls together with testosterone-fuelled obsession with sport and general boyish thugishness did not suit Tom which was why he headed off to St Albans Girls' school as soon as he could. Reputedly, one of the members of 60's group the Kinks and comedian/actor John Sessions also went to this school.
Hello to the parents who were watching me sketching if you're visiting.
