Event description
We look forward to celebrating Fairfax's 60th Diamond Anniversary with the Philpott family, former staff and students! #sinceritaslaboris

About this Event

We are really delighted to be celebrating our 60th year – when Gordon Philpott founded the school in 1959 he was committed to ‘social mobility’ before it became a popular phrase, and was determined that his comprehensive students had the same opportunities given to grammar school students.

Mr Philpott also founded the school’s house system, which is still in place, and introduced competitive sports and performing arts through our infamous Eisteddfod, which is still going strong.

On Friday, 27 September 2019 join us and reminisce with old friends. Visit our decades displays, sample food in our Refectory, feel welcomed by our PTA bar and enjoy a disco hosted by a former student.

We also look forward to the unveiling of a new portrait of Gordon Philpott to mark the occasion.

A celebration pin badge will be presented to all our guests.
