Playground Years Logo Our Aims Getting Involved About Contact

The Playground Years Project began in earnest in September 2014 when we accessed historical documents covering The School’s early years (1862 to 1929), held by The Cornwall Records Office in Truro.  

Since then, we have been given copies of photographs from local collectors of historical items and a collection of school photos and press clippings compiled by Mr. Stone, Headmaster until the 1960s.  Mr. Stone’s collection, which includes class group photos, staff photos and pictures of the May Day celebrations has been loaned to us by Mary Mills, his daughter.

In October 2014, as part of The Old School Centre’s relaunch, an exhibition of photographs and documents gathered so far were displayed in the Centre.

What we have so far spans the period 1842 to the 1970’s but we need YOU to fill in the gaps.
