Each year the school published a Year Book giving details of the
Staff, the Calendar for the year, the Prefects, and the Forms, with the
names of those in each form, with their house, the form master/mistress
and the form room. At the back of the book were fixtures for the
various sporting activities, school clubs, the rules, and library
information. Not all the books had all of the sections
Not all of the information is included, as some of the
year books have suffered a little with age, and not all pages could be
reproduced. The school rules have only been included for the
1959/60 and 1971/72 books, as there were a lot of them and for many
years they remained unchanged, and they have been included on a special
page for Rules.
Some things are clear comparing the earlier and
later year books. The size of the sixth form had increased
significantly, there was now no first or second years, and the number
of rules had been dramatically reduced from 41 in 1959 to 24 in 1971.
After that they were not included in the yearbook at all.

The pages for the pupils in each form have
been retyped, along with the details of the staff. This lengthy
and somewhat boring task was undertaken by Steve Garrett.
The purpose of this retyping is that as images they were not properly
searchable. Now, with the names retyped you can use the
search page to
look for any individual. Thank you to Steve.
The search facility is working already,
although it may not yet be fully indexed. It should be fully
indexed by Google in a week or so. Secondly, the process of retyping and then
converting to webpages may have introduced some errors. If you
spot an error, then please e-mail me
so that I can
correct the error. Typical errors might be a misspelling, a
missing class, or a repeated class, or possibly the odd missing pupil.
We have both checked carefully, but some errors do go unnoticed.
