Sir John Talbots Grammar School - a Memory of Whitchurch.

I went to the above pictured school. It was called Sir John Talbots Grammar School. One had to pass the eleven plus exam to be accepted there. Don't think John Thomas was even there! Nowadays it is known as SJT presumably standing for Sir John Talbot, the school is far from what it was. I have happy memories and don't think Sir John will be best pleased re his wrongly named school!

I was there too, Alison - regret that I don't recall your name, so I don't think you'd have been in my year. I attended from 1960 to 1967, spanning the period when the name changed from Whitchurch Grammar School to SJT, and the amalgamation with the Girls High School. I was a boarder, and I don't have happy memories of the place at all! But I'm glad you feel differently. I wonder if you still live locally: I never have, but I passed by the area not long ago, visiting relatives in Cheshire, and I noted the considerable changes - not least to the school, and the roads...
Kind regards, Tony Harrison
