A New Testament Bible was presented to all pupils to commemorate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on 2 June 1953.  The inner page was signed by R.V. Metcalfe and my form teacher J. Turner.

I was awarded a prize for Technical Drawing in my last year, but  because my choice was considered to be in 'bad taste' it was not presented formally in front of the school.  The prize, a book entitled "Concerning Jazz" (edited by Sinclair Traill), was sent through the post to my home.
