The pupil’s perspective of life at Sibford School between 1842 -2017 Written and compiled by Michael Finch to commemorate the 175th Anniversary of the School’s foundation on 1st January 2017.
Extracted from Reminiscences from the School Archives, written by old scholars, from 1842 -2017
Whilst reviewing ‘A view from the Hill’ which I wrote in 2010, one of the areas which I felt I’d omitted were ex pupils perceptions and memories of their times dating back to 1842. I have since researched and found some fascinating stories of how students’ at Sibford perceived their stay there – most had very positive recalls but a few had more negative memories which were nevertheless important in understanding of how Sibford School worked and the effect it had upon their lives and to give the wider community a fundamental understanding of what an amazing institution the School was and is.
I’m starting this revised look at Sibford’s history with my own memories of Sibford, as a Pupil, which I briefly outlined in ‘A view from the Hill’.
