David says 'goodbye' to Julian and donates items to the archive

David Tomley (1942-50) travelled from Leicester recently to visit the Headmaster at School.

Over a cup of coffee the two chatted and David offered his sincere well wishes for Julian's next step at Queen's College, Taunton. He also thanked Julian for moving the school forward during his tenure and for the steady hand he has had during the COVID pandemic.

David also donated items to the Archive. Within the documents are two school reports where in 1947 John Tilley writes that David 'Has done quite well'. There is also an end of term quiz, set by Headmaster Ralph Williamson.

If you would like to have a go at the quiz I have transferred some of the questions - 74 of them - to a Google Form.

Michaelmas Quiz, 1949

Good luck!
