Uggghhhh! Driving test centre street! Always sends shivers up my spine looking at that street. When was the Grammar school built? It's quite an imposing building.

Remember having my exams in this building the one next to the clock tower

Too bad the old school is no longer a school. For us old boys it will never be the same, though I am glad that the buildings have been put to such good use. I remmber school assemblies the music room across the hall and yes the dreaded exams in the assembly hall.

I have to agree with Frank, well said Dave. How could this old girl ever be anything but a Grammar Grub School to us fortunate lads. Remember the smells of polish and stuff in the corridors? Ahhhhh...
