1969 – School Report

This first form school report for 1969 gives some idea of the curriculum.


Subjects taken can be seen to include:

  • English
  • History
  • Geography
  • French
  • Mathematics
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Art
  • Metalwork
  • Physical Education

The class was split so that half did Metalwork, the other half did Woodwork. After the first half of the year, the groups swapped over. Latin was only taken by the ‘A’ Stream.

Note that the pocket calculator had not yet made its debut and log tables were still very much in evidence so subjects such as the modern ICT (Information and Computer Technology) were still pure Science Fiction!
