As we compile publications for the 125th next year, it has been interesting to look back at the old Chronicles. In the 1971 Chronicle we came across the Education Department’s report from 1970 - we think it also applies to our school today: “The driving force and sensible approach of the Principal, aided by a hard-working staff, have maintained a development on liberal lines within the school without sacrificing standards. Carefully planned courses aim at the development of character, of the individual talents of each pupil, and of a general tone that reflects the aims of the founders of the School. Changes within the school help senior pupils to go out into adult life with confidence in their ability to deal with the situations they meet. A true educational process is carried out in an atmosphere of ‘controlled freedom’ that is making it possible for the school to increase its service to the community it serves.”
