Dinner in Chapel (classes of 1990-2009)

Our series of dinners commemorating 100 years of Chapel

We were thrilled to welcome our third group of alumnae for Dinner in Chapel on Friday  17 November. This was the third in our series of dinners in celebration of the centenary of Chapel, and on this occasion the guests who attended had left School in the 1990s and 2000s. 

On arrival the guests gathered in Old School Hall for drinks and canapes, where they were joined by several prefects, all to a backdrop of soothing sounds from a string quartet of current students. Next, the alumnae were given a tour of the Benedict Building, our new Sixth Form Centre. Headmistress Rebecca Dougall then gave a short welcoming address before inviting the alumnae to join her in the atmospherically decorated Chapel for a sumptuous three-course meal, where the conversation flowed as freely as the wine. The guests took pleasure in reminiscing with fellow alumnae and delighted us with their amusing memories of school life. 

We would like to thank those alumnae who kindly shared their thoughts of the evening with us after the event: 

Thanks for organising such a wonderful evening. It was great fun and brought back so many memories to be back at the school!  

Hopefully it won’t be another 23 years until I visit again! 


Thank you so much to you and your team for putting on such an enjoyable and memorable evening last week.  It was lovely to have an opportunity to look around the school - revisiting old haunts and admiring the amazing new facilities that have been added more recently.   

I thoroughly enjoyed chatting to the prefects and comparing notes on school life at SHSK - then and now - and catching up with old friends and familiar faces.  The music was beautiful, the food was delicious and I felt thoroughly spoiled!  

Thanks for the photos - a lovely memento of a great evening. 


I went along last week and had a great time, would encourage others to go. And the food was incredible. Thank you! 

Our last Dinner in Chapel on Friday 8 March is for our most recent leavers, class of 2010 onwards. If you would like to find out more, or book your place, click here
