Rawlins becomes a girls' school - 1947

Loughborough Monitor - 9th October 1947

Quorn Grammar School - Girls only

Rawlins Grammar School, founded in the 17th century, and for fifty years in existence in Quorn, understood to be the first co-educational school south of the Trent, is to become a girls' school next Sept.

During the transition, Mr W Jacques, MA., has accepted the post of headmaster in succession to Mr A Dalton Murray who leaves at the end of the year. Mr Jacques has been a teacher at the Rawlins Grammar School for over 20 years and assistant headmaster for the past six years. He has taken an active part in local, social and sporting activities, having played for Leicestershire County Hockey XI., and he is an ex-captain of Loughborough Town Hockey Club, and a member for many years of Loughborough Town Cricket XI.

Mrs Jacques, formerly a mistress at the Rawlins Grammar School, is also well-known and popular in Quorn activities, and is the secretary to the Church Council.
