Rawlins Grammar School, Quorn, Christmas 1947

This photograph shows pupils, teachers and a few visitors enjoying a Punch and Judy show at Rawlins Grammar School Christmas party in the Farnham Hall in 1947. This was the last year before Rawlins became an ‘all girls’ school. As a result, a number of the boys were sent by the Education Authority to Loughborough Grammar. David Mee remembers that they considered themselves to be very fortunate as it was normally a fee paying school.
