We are always delighted to welcome Mr Graham Woollard from ‘Portals to the Past’ to the Prep School for his fascinating talk to Y6 on ‘Rocks and Fossils’.  Aided by his army of dino-models and incredible fossilised artefacts, Mr Woollard always inspires understanding and interest from the boys, not to mention the staff, who all love it!

However, this year proved extra special as he kindly donated a fossilised tree trunk, a plesiosaur humerus bone and a woolly rhino (coelodonta antiquitatis) thigh bone to the school. 

We hope to hold an exhibition of these new fascinating artefacts alongside the collection we already own (donated by Mr Blacklock and his father) so that everyone can take a look at this extraordinary piece of history.
