Toby Bentley’s (S 06-11) Inspiring Return To Health

Two years from being diagnosed with stage 3/4 Hodgkin Lymphoma on the day of the 2017 London Marathon, Toby Bentley (S 06-11) completed the London Marathon alongside his brothers Chris (S 03-08) and George (S 11-16), remarkably under 4 hours.

Chronicles from the Archives: Early History of the OS Club

For well over a century the Old Sedberghian Club has provided opportunities for OS to meet for informal social events and to access the network of professional knowledge and career opportunities within the alumni body. The earliest record of any alumni association is an article in The Sedberghian in December 1890 which invited Old Sedberghians to attend an Old Sedberghian Club dinner in Edinburgh a month later. The article records that the OS Club had subs which were charged at 7s. 6d. which in itself suggests that a club of some sort was already established at this point. As the preceding...
