On Saturday, 9th December students, parents, staff and friends of the School gathered at Holy Trinity Church in Skipton for Ermysted’s annual Founders’ Day Service, the traditional dedication to the School’s benefactors. Students from Year 7, 9, 11 and 13 were in attendance, and we heard readings from Reverend Veronica James, our Headmaster, Mr Evans, and the Head Boy, Jonny Macha. We also enjoyed a superb performance in a musical interlude on the bassoon from Ben Buckner of Year 10. The boys were in particularly good voice and it was wonderful to hear the School Hymn reverberate around the beautiful architecture of the church. Year after year, this service is fantastically attended and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended this year’s event, and any previous years. As a parting addition to the service, senior prefects kindly collected donations for the charity Reverb.
