History Club enjoy a spot of afternoon tea at Oatlands Park Hotel

Members of St George's Junior School History Club were treated to a very special afternoon tea on Monday 14 May at Oatlands Park Hotel in Weybridge.

The History Club members were set an intruiging challenge back in January – to find out about the history of Oatlands Park Hotel and to create a history trail for local residents. 

The children learnt all about the hotel's rich history, as it was a former hunting lodge of Henry VIII; it has also had many famous owners including the Grand Old Duke of York. The monument to his wife, the Duchess of York, is one of Weybridge’s most famous landmarks.

After months of research and hard work from the students, it was time to find out who had created the best history trail.

With much anticipation, the winner of the competition was...Owen.

Well done to Charlotte and Eva for finishing as runners up.

Once the awards had been handed out, the pupils were then very fortunate to receive a sumptuous afternoon tea to celebrate all of their efforts. It was one happy History Club! 

St George's and all of the staff would like to thank Shamim, the owner of the Oatlands Park Hotel, who generously hosted the tea and to Karim, who announced the winner of the competition. 

Thanks also must go to Cathy Hyde for initiating this project back in September and acting as a link between the Oatlands Park Hotel and St George’s Junior School.
