These are a few of the books believed to have been used in school, and a few more known to have been written by teachers, Headmasters or ex-pupils at the school.  The details on the spine of some of the books is a bit unclear but if you hold your cursor briefly over the spine, the title of the book will appear in a text box.
 Click on the spine of a book to look inside
