Not quite the 'Captain's log' but back in the day, the Headteacher at the time, Mr Summers, kept a journal to record the day's key events. We have recently discovered some of these beautifully scribed logs in our archives and our resident historian, History teacher Mr Eccles, has revelled in them to find 'picks' which we will find amusing to read today.  How things have changed!

There was a meeting in my room about school uniform. It was decided to choose Royal Blue and Yellow as school colours and the uniform to consist of a blue cap, blazer, grey suit or dress. When all items of uniform were settled a letter should be sent to parents asking for their co-operation in providing uniform for the children.
