St Peter's Logo Logoname

Somewhat surprising, for a school that closed down a third of a century ago, we have found a number of items that we thought some of you might like to acquire.
So far the list is a little limited and we don't intend to expand it too much as we are not really shop-keepers (well, Tim Farebrother wouldn't claim to be!).
We are not intent on making a fortune by selling things but any surplus we do make over the cost of the items for sale is used to defer the running costs
of the Association (postage, web-site hosting, stationery etc.). This website has been built at no cost to the Association - Stephen Kent does it for
the fun of it - a glutten for punishment some may say!
If you have something that could be duplicated that might be of interest to others, we would be delighted to consider putting it here, do let us know.
We know most old boys missed out on the auction when everything was sold. It would be wonderful to include photos on the website of some of the most memorable items
such as the shell cases, school flag or a complete set of school uniform for a start!
It would be great to know where some of the most memorable items went.

The following items are available:

St Peter's Old Boys Tie.

Transcription from the original film to DVD of "Willingly to School"
filmed Summer 1970.
Filmed as a marketing tool for the IAPS (Independent Association of Preparatory Schools),
this record of life at St Peters includes film record of many of those you probably knew
when at school as well as the school itself. It is priceless.

Transcription of an LP made in 1977 called 'Sixty Years On'
This recording is also priceless. It contains seven quality numbers sung, presumably, by the choir
and some recordings of voices including Marjorie Knox-Shaw, Mike, John and Margaret Farebrother,
Sybil Clark, the Haynes family and other staff and children around at the time.
Really it is quite haunting hearing all those voices from the past. Thanks to
Simon Brown who dug this out his garage!
