H.R.H. The Duke of Kent visited Caterham School on 8 February to unveil a plaque commemorating the opening of the refurbished cricket pavilion.

In addition to unveiling the plaque, H.R.H. The Duke of Kent saw the school orchestra and choir give a performance of the School's Bicentenary Anthem, which was composed by the Director of Music Stuart Thompson. The Circus Club gave an entertaining display of circus skills and the CCF put on a varied display of outdoor skills.

The refurbished pavilion will be known as the Leathem Pavilion in memory of Mr Terry Leathem who was Headmaster from 1950 to 1973.

The pavilion has been refurbished by the School, assisted by donations from the Old Caterhamians' Association and the Parents Association. In addition to sports facilities, the pavilion includes state of the art workspaces for Art and Drama.

Headmaster Julian Thomas said: 'We are honoured that H.R.H. The Duke of Kent could find time in his busy schedule to visit the school and open the new pavilion. I am delighted that we are able to celebrate the bicentenary year with a project that will support students in both sport and the creative arts.'
