Wolverhampton Grammar School was founded in 1512 and has been on its present site since 1875. This fascinating collection of over 200 photographs and other documents presents a pictorial record of this rich history, concentrating on the years since the move to Compton Road. All the major changes in the school are shown, from the opening of Big School in 1875, through the middle years of the twentieth century when the school's status changed several times, to the advent of co-education in the late 1990s. In between are countless events which will be remembered fondly by past students: the visits of the Queen in 1962 and the Duchess of Kent in 1989, the opening of numerous buildings, sports days, Founder's days and much more. The stars of the book, however, are the students and staff themselves. They are shown at work and at leisure, in posed groups and casually photographed, at school and outside. Staid groups of prefects and staff at the end of the nineteenth century contrast with colourful images from the beginning of the twenty-first. At all times, every effort has been made to name those who appear in the pictures. The pictures are drawn mainly from the school's archives, along with important contributions from past and present members of the school and material from the local press. This impressive compilation is sure to appeal to all who know Wolverhampton Grammar School, whether young or old.
