The school is built

It was Headmaster Percival Smith who oversaw the building of the school as we recognise it now. He was Head from 1924 to 1933. Through the Great depression, with huge determination and at significant cost to his health, he saw the Great Hall open with the recital on the organ we see today, the library as it is now and the south wing. It was Percival Smith who first occupied the study that I work in today. Aside from his tremendous work left in physical form, this was when the huge strength of science at sixth form first began to be established.
