Holy Trinity C of E School will celebrate 100 years in Wethered Road as part of Heritage Open Day on Sunday 15th September (10am to 4pm)
A little bit of history…
Although the school has been based in Wethered Road for the last 100 years the actual school has been going for 200 years and was originally based in Church Passage, Marlow. In 1910 the school had outgrown its accommodation and plans were put in place to build new premises. In November 1913, the boys were given a weeks “holiday” to move furniture and apparatus to the new school and it opened with 308 on the register.
Open Day on Sep 15th
The school will be open to the public on Sunday with a display of old photographs and memorabilia donated by local residents as well as woodworking and traditional craft displays. The refreshment area will have a vintage theme.
Items will be available for purchase including centenary mugs and a history of the school drawn from entries in historical log book accounts. We have seen a copy of this, and it is very well put together and fascinating – highly recommended!
The pupils have undertaken a Marlow Past & Present topic and displays of the children’s work can be seen around the school.
If you are a former pupil, why not have your handprint painted on to a tile and join the “Helping Hands” wall which has been running for 7 years and includes generations of families who have attended the school.
A sample of some of the superb old photos collected
