The Purley Honours Board

It is good to see that this is now mounted in the reception area at the new Coulsdon College. Thanks go to Steve Kiss ( 1966-73 ) for ensuring that the board was moved from storage to the new resting place.

What happened to all the other honours boards that were mounted on the back wall of the assembly hall?

Good question. I've had a quick flick through my 2007 Reunion photos. The Roll of Honour board was there on the wall but not the other two boards (it was two wasn't it?). One included the Head Boys and Senior Masters, the other had captains of the sports teams. Alas, I never featured on either! I too would be interested to know their current whereabouts.
