Additional information on 1938 photograph: The photograph was given to John Sweet in 2006, on his eightieth birthday, by a life long friend, Clive Gribble. He is also on the photo somewhere on the back row. Note how the the crest and legend have been printed back to front in the photograph! I read the motto as "Labore et Virtute" (By valour and exertion.) In 1932 the owners and joint headmasters were a Mr Bateman and Mr Bucknell. In 1938 they sold it to Mr. Miller who in 1940 sold it to JHM.
