Join us for an evening of entertainment at the Tranby Summer Ball for Alumni & Friends. We are looking forward to celebrating at the end of this academic year and bringing together our alumni community along with current families and friends.
Our school is made up of four alumni groups; The Old Grammarians from Hull Grammar School, The Old Girls from Hull High School for Girls, Old Collegians from Hull Collegiate School and Tranbians. This celebration is open to everyone and the perfect opportunity for our alumni to reconnect amid the glorious surroundings of the historically significant Tranby Croft.
The black tie event will be held in a marquee in the sports hall and includes a champagne reception with canapes and a 3 course meal. Music will be provided by the male acapella group, Answers on a Postcard featuring Rob Haworth and his son Leigh, and local band, The Contraband who will be making sure the dance floor is full. The bar will be fully stocked courtesy of Yorkshire Bartender and the evening will also feature a raffle and auction.
The event is sponsored by Connexin in aid of the Tranby Trust, the School's charity (charity no. 1079653) founded in 2000. The Trust provides financial assistance to new and existing pupils of Tranby by subsidising the cost of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The Trust is committed to broadening access to Tranby and holds the school motto ‘the best in everyone’ at its core. For some pupils the Trust provides help with school fees. The Sir James Reckitt Charity is one such donor who contributes to assisting a number of pupils.
Connexin co-founders Alex Yeung and Furqan Alamgir are both alumni and trustees of the Tranby Trust. Since starting Connexin they have recruited four alumni who are now part of a hugely successful company. They both appreciate the value of a quality, independent education enriched with opportunities in extra-curricular activities from sport, music and the arts.
