Os Wkend


The OS Club is delighted to welcome the Sedberghian community back to Sedbergh for OS Weekend on Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October 2023

Following Michael Raw’s death in May we have had an overwhelming response in recognition of this much loved individual who inspired generations of Sedberghians during his many years at the School. We have had numerous requests from OS to attend his memorial service, and therefore, to facilitate everyone’s travels, the School has arranged for the memorial service to be held on OS Weekend in the Chapel at 5.00pm on Saturday 30th September. The evening dinner that follows will be in honour of Michael and will serve as a fitting tribute to this great and wonderful man. 

The Weekend will also be held in conjunction with OS Sports Weekend, including OS hockey, rugby, running, shooting, golf and netball fixtures against the School teams.

The OS President’s Lunch will be held on Saturday at 1pm at the Hirst Centre. Following the Lunch there will be a girls’ School hockey match on the astroturf and a rugby match on Buskholme.

If you are able to play for any of the OS sporting teams please register your interest with Benjamin Collins at bpc@sedberghschool.org.
