Statement re the Annual Bulletin Magazine

It has been our intention to produce a 2018/19 Bulletin for distribution this year. This was finally sent to our printer around 4 weeks ago. However this printer has since gone into administration and we are seeking to establish if the order is to be honoured or whether a new printer needs to be found. We will put an update here once the position becomes clearer.


A group of former Sutton High School pupils who left the school in 1971 are looking to stage a 50th anniversary reunion event in 2021. They have earmarked the weekend of 25th to 27th June 2021 for the reunion event in Plymouth. It is being organised independently of the Old Suttonian Association and is being co-ordinated by Pete Marner. The Association is simply facilitating contact between Pete and anyone from his peer group who is interested in the reunion. If you wish to contact Pete you can e-mail him here.
