VALLEY FORGE MILITARY ACADEMY AND COLLEGE EXCHANGE
Links between Duke of York’s Royal Military School and Valley Forge Military Academy and College (VFMA&C) near Philadelphia USA continue to flourish.
Nicholas Amalfitano left shortly before Christmas having spent the whole of the Autumn term with us. He has thrown himself with real enthusiasm into his life here playing Rugby for the 2nd XV and going on many outings and trips including visiting the World War One battlefields with the rest of the Lower Sixth form Historians. On the other side of the Atlantic, Charlotte Wilson who left the School in July 2009, is studying for a music diploma at the College.
At the end of October a group of about 10 of our musicians accompanied by two members of staff played at the 2009 VFMA&C Military Tattoo. Major (retd) Cresswell the newly appointed Director of Military Music said that “It was a great privilege for our young musicians to practise and play alongside a Military Band who have a national reputation across America for the excellence of what is known there as “Field Music” “
