Purley Calendar from 1974 - "read, learn and inwardly digest"

Interesting that the 21 Club was still in existence in 1974. This was started in 1967/8 and met (unsurprisingly) in Room 21 under the watchful eye of Revd Bernard Holt whose RE room we occupied. Many of the meetings that year drew large audiences, with standing room only at some, and audience participation meant that proceeding sometimes got noisy, even rowdy, with AJ 'looking in' on more than one occasion to see what was going on. The participation of Moss & Lodwick from the 1st Year in particular is remembered by many (are you out there John?).

I note that Mr R Tyler was at the school in 1974. I assume that this was Bob Tyler who taught Physics and who was my form teacher in 1963/4. If it is, he must have returned to the school, having left sometime in the 1960's. An Old Boy of the school, like Dave Shepherd and Dr Venters, and a really nice guy.
