Historical School Records


This week, whilst clearing out an old cupboard in the academy, we came across three amazing books which record some of the history of the academy.  These include two journals written by the head teachers as a daily record of what went on within the school.  Perhaps the most amazing, but also rather sad, is the old punishment record book.  You can see in the image an entry from 1914 showing the pupils' wrong doing and the punishment that they got for it.  Thank goodness we no longer have the cane today.
