At the point Peter mentions the Reverend Lawrence, you may not quite be able to hear his whispered comment that . . . "He used to get tight ! "
The headmaster during Peter's time at the school was Robert Laffan. When he was appointed in 1885 the school consisted of under forty boys and just two assistant masters.He used his own funds to employ further staff and as a result additional subjects were added to the curriculum and better examination results were achieved. This in turn attracted more pupils to the school.
