The Grammar School – During the summer holidays extensive alterations and additions are being made at the instigation of The Board of Education to the school and headmaster’s house. The whole of the ground floor will be used and is now being adapted for school purposes, thus adding four additional classrooms to the large schoolroom. The first and second floors are being reconstructed for the headmaster’s and boarders’ residence, and new kitchens and servants apartments are being built.

The architect is Mr. R.Phillips, F.R.I.B.A., Gloucester,, and the contractors are Messrs. Espley and Co. Ltd., Evesham. It is hoped that the extended vacation of eight weeks will give sufficient time for the completion of the interior. The Headmaster has vacated his house for this period.

( The Head stayed at 16, Shaftsbury Ave, Bedford for the duration.)
