Past Student Association History

Old School

Past Student Association Committee, 1970s

The Past Students’ Association was formed very soon after the first cohort of students
left the school in the early 1900s. The PSA was particularly active between the two World Wars,
and immediately after the Second World War. It enjoyed a renewed lease of life in the mid-1960s and 1970s.

Dates in the caption below the photograph give the period when the committee member was a pupil at the school.
