Secondary Modern Culture 1959

If you went to such a school back then I recommend you google the following – Absolute beginnings Stuart Hall – up comes a paper at the very top of the page that discusses secondary modern education in the 50s, the spending patterns of the teenagers back then and much more.

Even grammar school pupils will get something from it.

Interesting reading.

    No. It is mainly an article about secondary moderns ie schools not attended by the great majority of grammar school pupils! That being the case I was trying to get across that ex grammar school pupils should not be put off by the subject of the post.

    Now then, if you had written your comment a few years ago it might have been spot on – but no longer!

    I am delighted that you are still around Frank. Have a good 2012.

    Surprised that your shakespearean boozing buddy picked on you like that Wilf, I reckon it’s Frank’s round the next time you meet up for a pint.
