Paul was born into a family of musicians, reluctantly learning to play the piano before deciding on a career as a composer at age twelve. At nineteen his orchestral pieces were recorded as production library music, and at twenty he became Assistant Musical Adviser to ABC Television and composed his first score for a major TV drama. Paul began composing this piece while still a pupil at the College over fifty years ago! Completed just before Christmas, Paul then undertook the arduous task of proof-reading the 63 pages. He has now donated the piece to the College for the pupils to perform and rehearsals are underway!
The North family bestowed a great favour on the College in June 2015 when they arranged for the medals of Lister Durrell Wickham to be donated to the College. Head Master Richard Cairns was delighted to meet with the Phillipson family and to receive the medals, which are now on display in the College Chapel. After serving at Gallipoli Lister had been home ill, and had married his sweetheart musician Marguerite Dickensen.
If you are planning a visit to Brighton and would like a tour of the College and your old House, it is much better to contact us first so that we can be prepared for your arrival and have the time to show you around properly.
We are always delighted to see OBs back at the College but it can be disappointing for both you and us if we cannot allocate enough time to your visit due to other commitments. These days we are governed by strict health and safety laws, safeguarding and security measures which mean that visitors have to be accompanied around the campus.
These rules apply as much in the holidays as in term time as the College has various commercial lettings involving large numbers of children. It is a frustrating situation for all of us when you are not able to see all that you want to, and we would appreciate your consideration in helping us make it easier for you.
Please telephone Angelina in the OB office to let us know when you would like to visit on 01273 704 226.
