Tommy 90 Not Out

Old Ruymian Terry Gilliland presented Tommy with a fantastic portrait on behalf of former pupils and sportsmen of Chatham House to celebrate his 90th birthday. See a few photos of the scaled down celebration here. This event has been rescheduled for Friday 30th July at the North Foreland Golf Club.

Our History

Chatham House school started life as the Humble School founded in 1797 by Dr Humble. Clarendon House was founded in 1905 and was situated on the first floor of Ramsgate police station, presumably to keep the 50 young ladies in the care of the Merriman sisters safe from the gentlemen of Chatham House.
