Former classmates of Barnstaple Boys’ Secondary School –aka Derby College and Blacksell’s Academy – are getting together again at rugby club.

Former classmates of Barnstaple Boys’ Secondary School are getting together again on Saturday night.

Old boys who went to the school – also known as Derby College and Blacksell’s Academy – will be toasting the ‘unsung heroes’, those who left the school and went on to help North Devon prosper.

The school operated from 1939 to 1972 and is now Yeo Valley Junior School.

Anyone who attended under headmasters Blacksell or Heppenstall is welcome at the reunion at Barnstaple Rugby Club, starting at 7pm.

A similar event last year attracted around 112 former pupils from around the world and many are thought to be making a return trip this year.

The reunion starts at 7pm.

For more information about the reunion or to confirm your attendance, call Gerald Thorne on 01271 345054.
