Written by a former head teacher, this book follows the formation and life of a secondary school between 1936 and 2007. It reflects the changing social, cultural and political landscape over the period, as well as the changing attitudes and expectations of parents, teachers and children. Meticulously researched, the book charts the evolution of the school and the educational system in Britain in the twentieth century and examines how aspects such as examinations and discipline are constantly reviewed and revised. It also shows how disillusionment can contribute to the decline of such an establishment despite the best efforts of those who care.
