1920 – Full School Photo

There was a full school photo taken in 1920. Whilst the quality is much lower than I would like, it is the best I can put together from the available resources and it does at least serve to provide a flavour of what the school was like at the time.

The year was significant because the number of Grammar School pupils exceeded 200 for the first time. At this time, the vast majority of the school was fee paying and ‘School Certificates’ and ‘Higher School Certificates’ were the standard qualifications being some 32 years before the replacement by ‘O’ and ‘A’ Levels.

 In 1920, just 17 ’School Certificates’ were awarded together with 3 ‘Higher School Certificates’.
