No. 196

  January 2020


Following the articles on the Grindal ‘Last Post’ buglers and
the old school prospectuses in the summer issue of the Bulletin,
we have received some follow-up comments:

Richard Shaw (FS 61-64):

“Must say that the 1914 prospectus has some amusing comments, and those fees! Also interesting how Foundation was treated differently in terms of fees. I found in my old tuck box a mid-1950s prospectus when my father was registering me for school in 1961. The boarding and tuition fee quoted then was £250 p.a.”
