1988 Scout Photo

"Not strictly the school, but this photo taken at scout summer camp in 1988 features a number of Purley boys including Robert Byatt, Robert Hosker and Graham Southwell. The camp was held at Goathland in North Yorkshire, a village that was shortly afterwards to gain fame as the setting for ITV's 'Heartbeat' series. The boys belonged to the 20th Purley Scout Group, a popular choice over the years for Purley HS boys in Coulsdon, but which sadly closed in 2007."
Thanks to Martin Jones for this.
