The opening of the Percy Jackson Grammar School in 1939 coincided with the onset of the Second World War, an ominous start for the life of a new school. In this informal history, the author chronicles the lifetime of this coeducational school, and with a light touch he considers whether schooldays really are the best days of your life. Drawing upon abundant recollections from former pupils - many of whom, like him, were the children of mining families and the first generation to attend grammar school - Ken Cooke covers topics as diverse as war-time evacuees, the school visit to the Festival of Britain in 1951, reactions to the 1968 conversion to a comprehensive, and the achievements of some of the school's alumni. This history is faithful to the facts, yet true to the sentiments.
