Bond Street (1933)

By now, Mr. Robinson had been replaced by Sydney Wilson as headmaster. The school had ceased to be independent and was now a state run school but had a good name for sound, solid work.

The number of boys at the school had now reached three hundred. Pupils now sat for ‘School Certificates’ and ‘Higher School Certificates’ which had been introduced a few years prior. In 1933, twenty-eight School Certificates were awarded together with ten Higher School Certificates. Bearing in mind that a year would have consisted of around fifty boys, this will give some idea of the national success rate, Burton having well above average performance.
