Founder's Day - Sir John Cass School

The rain held off just long enough for this special day to go without a hitch!  The church of St Botolph without Aldgate was filled to bursting point with eager young children all smartly turned out and sporting their 'red feather' in honour of their Founder, Sir John Cass.  The feather represents the quill pen steeped in blood, due to his untimely demise whilst signing his Will. The Will was contested but the Foundation won and has continued for evermore. Read more below.
