Written in 1989 to mark the 25th anniversary of the school
Introduction and Index
One morning in September 1964 children began walking through the gates of Chancellor's School for the first time. It marked the end of a campaign by parents and local residents for the village to have its own secondary school. Lilian Caras's history sets out the circumstances leading up to the building of the school and charts its development. Lilian has given permission for her book 'Chancellor's School - The Background' to be reproduced in full on this site. The limited edition book was written to mark the 25th anniversary of the school in 1989. Several pages of original photographs are listed below.
Note: The original book, written by Lilian Caras, had a number of other sections covering the teaching staff, first pupils and lists of head girls and boys, chairmen of governors, governors and chairmen of the PTA, but these parts of the book are not reproduced here.
