From the Magazine Editorial by Dr Godfrey Bobbins (‘G. B.’):
1935 has been a very important year in the history of the school. The enrolment of some fifty boys more than in previous years in Standard 7 has led to the creation of an extra class and the appointment from next year of another master. If the accession of new boys continues, we can predict the creation within a few years of extra Standards 8, 9 and, 10, and further appointments to the staff. Until we can have extensions made, we may find the strain on our accommodation severe; but we welcome the growth of our school.
