#whsfridayfact Bader House 1981
In 1979 it was decided that because the school had grown so much in size that more 'houses' should be developed, so in 1979 Hunt House was inaugurated and then in 1981 Bader House came into being. Douglas Bader visited the school to officially open the House in the Autumn Term of 1981. He gave a talk to all the senior children about his amazing life and achievements, followed by a special tea with all the new Baderites in the dining room. After tea the children were then treated to a showing of the biographical film of his life 'Reach for the Sky'.
We are lucky enough to have one of those first House children in the present staff body at the moment, Alice Wright (nee Duckett OWL'82)
