Support us by Sponsoring a Prize Giving Cup/Shield in your Name
A number of prizes are awarded at the annual Prize Giving. Some prizes presented have engraved named cups or shields in honour of particular individuals, other prizes are in name only. We are now offering Old Ewellians the opportunity to sponsor existing prizes which do not currently have cups or shields and have these prizes named after the sponsor. The cups/shields will have the sponsor name engraved on them and after Prize Giving they will reside in the School trophy cabinet. Each sponsored prize will be listed in the official Prize Giving programme. Email Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details. Prize donors will be invited to attend Prize Giving and will be acknowledged within the annual Ewellian Magazine which they will receive a copy of. The sponsorship money will pay towards the yearly pupil award as well as the cost of purchasing a cup or shield and it's engraving.
Can you offer an OE university student a Work Internship/Placement?
We have a number of Old Ewellians who are currently undergraduates at university who are looking for internships or placements as part of their degree courses. Some need short term placements for a few months or the summer, others for the whole academic year (either this academic year or in future).
If you own a business and can help, or the business you work for offers internships or work placements for undergraduates or post graduate students, we would love to hear from you. We'll then put you in touch with potential OE candidates. Email Carol at email@example.com.
Where are they now? Former pupil Danny Archer
Danny Archer started at Ewell Castle when he was four-years-old and ended up becoming a “Lifer” eventually leaving in 2013 as; Head Boy, Captain of Football and Captain of Swimming, positions he feels very privileged to have received and been recognised for. He also captained the School teams on football & cricket tours to Antigua and Tenerife. Danny studied English, History as well as Government & Politics at A-Level finishing with grades of A*, A* & A, which included being one of a handful of students in the UK to achieve 100% in the Government & Politics A-Level exam that year. He went on to study Politics and International Relations at the University of Bath, graduating with a 2:1.
Danny is now a sports broadcaster and journalist, presenting and writing for companies such as the Racing Post, Sky, Racenews, William Hill and LADbible Group. He is obsessed with sport and spends a lot of time playing or watching it, including football as well as going to the gym. He enjoys music and travelling, recently travelling to Vietnam. The best email to reach him on is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where are they now? Former teacher Mr Sagar
Malcolm Sagar arrived at Ewell Castle School in 1972 to replace Squadron Leader Bliss to teach Physics, but also taught Chemistry when Mr Le Rougetel decided to leave that same year. He continued to teach Physics, Chemistry, Maths and General Studies and helped out with football, swimming and cross-country running as well as supporting the History and Modern Languages Departments on school trips abroad. For a time, he was Raleigh Housemaster, taking over from Mr Oliver. He was also responsible for organizing external exams from 1986 until his retirement in 2005.
Mr Sagar now enjoys holidays, manages a very large allotment and is Chairman of the Allotment Association. He is still active with the Old Ewellians Association and often bumps into 'old boys' when he is out and about in the village. He remains in contact with several staff from the ‘70s and ‘80s and can always pass on information of how they are getting on. You can contact Mr Sagar via email@example.com.
We are looking to expand this former teacher/pupil feature so please email in short biographies of yourselves if you would like to appear in forthcoming features.
