Synopsis
School Story is a lavishly illustrated book, combining recent new images alongside archive material, and provides a fitting celebration for the School's 75th anniversary. It includes a wonderful collection of intimate memories, anecdotes, stories and reminiscences from current and former pupils, parents, staff and friends of Cumnor House. There are contributions from former pupils and parents including the actor Simon Williams, the journalist Dominic Lawson, former Daily Mirror editor, Piers Morgan and cookery writer Katie Stewart, alongside a mix of serious, funny, irreverent, as well as poignant memories. "Nowadays people suck their teeth at the idea of eight-year-olds being sent to boarding schools but to us baby-boomers Cumnor House wasn't Colditz, say rather Butlins - it was the place you could get everything done: unharried by testy parents you could get on with your model plane, your hamster, your patch of garden, the Tarzan rope, marbles, your trombone, conkers, highland dancing, your part in The Tempest - perhaps there were lessons too." Simon Williams Written by Nick Milner-Gulland
