The School in 1961-62
We are grateful to Paul Lilly for this digitalised, edited footage from his original cine film taken in 1961-62, which gives a snapshot of school life at the time. The sequence opens with the boarders preparing to leave for the obligatory Sunday morning service at the Cathedral, and goes on to images from a Sports Day and closes with a demonstration of the rope trick – a method of reaching the dormitory/study block without being observed by the Headmaster, the Housemaster or the Prefects on duty!
