Many items feature the special anniversary stripe, which includes scarlet, one of the School’s original colours. Others use a print of a contemporary tapestry of the Pelican, Prep and Upper created for us by textile artist Charlene Mullen.
Three of the items can be worn by pupils as part of the school uniform: the pin badge (all designs), the anniversary polyester tie and the anniversary scarf. The tie proved so popular that it was adopted as the main school tie at the end of the anniversary year.
Profits from sales of the memorabilia were used to fund our celebrations, including anniversary activities for pupils, the development and production of Around The Perse in 400 Years, the creation and performance of a piece of music based on pupils’ creative ideas, and our community lecture series.
