50th Anniversary

Thanks to all former pupils who took part in our questionnaire for the 50th Celebrations.
Here are just a few of the comments 

Memories 1960s
Studying for exams in the library – it was quite strict ! !
“it was quiet and we didn’t get to use it much!”    “small and not user friendly”
Staff memory -   “a relaxing and peaceful area”- remembers chatting to Lynne the librarian.

1980s
Several mentioned how the old library was “longer”
The library was always busy and was greatly used during study leave.

2000s
“having fun, relaxing and computer time”
 "learning about debating"  thinks they must have met there.
