The Ceremonial


Another feature of Pangbourne life is the ceremonial traditions of the College. The Pangbourne community comes together for Parade Sundays approximately 2-3 times per term. Students wear formal attire and perform as a guard, in the Marching Band or march as a College which develop the pupils’ self-discipline and confidence.

The academic year culminates in Founders’ Day, where students, family, friends, Old Pangbournians, Parents of Old Pangbournians and local dignitaries celebrate at the College and formally bid farewell to the outgoing Upper Sixth.

Founders’ Day is considered the best annual event at Pangbourne, with marching, music, sports and a series of speeches going into the mix to make the occasion unforgettable.
