My grandad was the headmaster there and his son (my dad) Oliver Burras Rigby was head boy and later a grammar school headmaster in his own right. Dad achieved so much and amongst other things was Chairman of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme in Devon. Granddad died before dad could tell him and with the Duke dying it has brought everything back.

I attended AGS 1940-45. I’m gratefull to all staff for good grounding for great career; explored chemistry inside nuclear reactors; chemistry for electricity etc. Special salute to teacher Basher Hall RIP. Messages from former classmates welcome. I’m now age 92 years and live in Saskatoon SK Canada …

I attended 1962 to 1969. I have so much to thank for the school for training me in how to live! Mr Tillotson taught me physics but more importantly how to work for exams. Study 30 mins rest 30 mins study 30 mins etc. I never forgot that technique. It worked for me. Best of all Mr Stevenson the best chemistry teacher ever. He got me so interesting in chemistry by his enthusiastic lessons. I’m now 70 so it’s only taken me more than half a century to say THANK YOU!! Appreciate you are probably no longer with us but you made a difference for me.
