Hayesfield Celebrates 100 Years of Girls’ Education

2022 is an exciting year for Hayesfield Girls’ School. As the biggest educator of girls in Bath the school is preparing to celebrate 100 years of girls’ education on the Upper Oldfield Park Campus. 

In 1922, City of Bath Girls’ School opened on the Upper Oldfield Park site led by the first Headteacher, Miss Thatcher. The school grew and flourished over the next 50 years until it became Hayesfield Girls’ School in 1973, when it merged with West Twerton Secondary Modern. Since that time, the school has grown even further in size, popularity, and success. Hayesfield are taking the opportunity to celebrate the generations of young women who have passed through its doors over the decades, and on Wednesday 6 July the school will be holding its Centenary Celebration. The girls’ school would love any alumni to join Hayesfield on the evening from 5.30pm for a range of choral, musical, dramatic and dance performances, food, tours of the buildings and exhibitions celebrating its history.

More details available at hayesfield.com, including how to book a tour on the day.
