Last Thursday we had the pleasure of a visit from Robin Fletcher, Boarding Schools’ Association National Director. He met with Mr Symonds and spent time with our fantastic Houseparents, Mr and Mrs Glanville and all our boarding children.

During his visit a group then went out to the Walled Garden to plant an apple tree, kindly donated to us by Almondsbury Garden Centre. The planting of this tree means that Tockington Manor School has joined ‘The Boarding Orchard’. This was an initiative launched by the BSA in 2014 and involves boarding schools planting fruit tress in their grounds. The trees symbolise the ‘tree of knowledge’ and demonstrate each member school’s commitment to growth and caring for the environment.

It was a lovely, sunny morning, Mr Fletcher was said to have really enjoyed his visit to the school and we feel very privileged to be part of this association.
