The Judd School 1956

Mr Douglas Broad kindly scanned in this whole school photo of Judd in 1956!

Mr. Broad pointed out that the Head Master at the time was Mr Taylor sitting in the middle. Sitting two chairs over to his right is apparently Mr Sutton the Music master. 

Francis Hillier Taylor, previously senior history master at The Skinners' School, was appointed as Morgan's successor at the end of the spring term in 1946, a position that attracted 321 applications.  During his tenure, Taylor significantly expanded the school facilities: in 1948, the headmaster's living quarters were converted to include a secretary’s office, waiting room and medical inspection room (the headmaster moved to neighbouring Brook House, which was purchased by The Skinners' Company). In 1955, new geography rooms were constructed, followed three years later by a new gymnasium. Although not first used until two years later, a swimming pool was constructed in 1964 at the cost of £9,000. Taylor also introduced some major curriculum changes, including the introduction of new subjects such as rural biology and zoology.  Denis Rendall took over the school in 1970.

Can you comment below and name yourself in this photo? Can you recognise or name any of the teachers?
