I found this photograph of one of the rooms at the school, and if you look closely on either side of the screen in the centre background, you will just make out two boards that could perhaps be Rolls of Honour…

…and indeed they are.  In a store room in a Woking multi-storey, and with a little help from Freddie Flintoff and that bloke on the right (whom you may recognise from elsewhere on this site), we tracked both of them down.  Good work, eh?

    I was there from mid 72 to Feb 73, when I got kicked out!
    The roll of honor board was in the dining room, the dining room was the big room on
    the left as you look at the building from the front. I was passing by in the 90’s and I had a look around and I was talking to someone and he was throwing away an aerial photo of the place, I probably still have it.
