Blast from the Past - 1951

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the Association is receiving correspondence. Without fail, every letter, email or Facebook post revives a lost or forgotten piece of the School’s history.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the Association is receiving correspondence from members about their time at the School. Without fail, every letter, email or Facebook post revives a lost or forgotten piece of the School’s history. From an image of the bibles given to pupils in 1971 to a memory of raising £1,200 for a VCR (Video Cassette Recorder) player for the School, Gattonians hold the School’s history in their memories.

We are glad that you continue to share these with your school friends and other members of the Association. We were very pleased to receive an email from Gattonian Charles Brodley with a photograph taken circa 1951.

Mr Brodley’s excellent memory means that we can still put some names to the faces in this fantastic photograph. If you are in the photo or remember any additional names, do get in touch.
