Brentwoodian 2022

Headmaster that included the words of Evelyn Heseltine, Chairman of Governors from the early 20th Century: “I shall pass this way only once; any good that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being; let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” As well as presenting a good opportunity to celebrate our past, the anniversary of the School’s values allows us to reaffirm our commitment to them. Virtue, Learning and Manners are as - if not more - important now than at any point in our history. In a world of change, where accepted truths seem to be questioned, it’s helpful (and reassuring) to have a set of values we can use to underpin everything we do here at Brentwood, and my hope is that you will see more than a sprinkling of them in the events and achievements described herein. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have contributed to this year’s Brentwoodian - by doing so, they have stood on the shoulders of the giants who have gone before us, and played their part in maintaining this wonderful tradition. I hope you enjoy reading about what has been a remarkable year. Best wishes Michael Bond 5
