The London Annual Dinner was once again held at the RAF Club in Piccadilly, London on Saturday 26 November 2022.  Master of Ceremonies, Andrew Edwards (OH 1975-85) hosted the evening, which saw alumni from the 1960s to more recent leavers in 2017 attend.

The evening started with a welcome address from the Old Hymerian Southern President, Bansari Patel (OH 1999-2001), and a toast from Headmaster Justin Stanley.  After a lovely meal, Helen-Mary Saunders (OH 1990-2000), gave a speech on her appointment as Old Hymerian President in September 2022 and what she has done since then.

This was followed by Andrew Edwards putting Mark Freestone (OH 1989-96), now a Clinical Psychologist 'In the hot seat' to answer questions on his time at Hymers College and his career since leaving.  He reminisced about his favourite teachers, including Physics and Duke of Edinburgh teacher, Mr Dave Thompson.  He helped Mark's team learn valuable life lessons giving them space to discover long hills and terrain on their own!

He also detailed his career since leaving school, which has resulted in him writing a book "Making a Psychopath".  The book details his work on some of the most dangerous minds in the country and left the audience with a scenario to see who amongst us might be a psychopath.
