We are very grateful to Paul Lilly for making available these cine films from his time at the School.
We recommend that you switch to “Full Screen” when viewing these videos (the symbol at the bottom right of the picture)
This film was taken in 1962-63, and 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 brief shots of several of the teachers. The film 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!
[NO STUDENTS WERE HARMED DURING THE MAKING OF THIS FILM]
