Paul Graham (JRGS 1959-66) writes: "The site collects newspaper articles relating to the school. These are all from The Croydon Advertiser and are courtesy of Stephen Lander. They date from 1955 when JRGS moved to its new site at Shirley, record the years of expanding sixth forms, and finish with the retirements in the Seventies of the head Mr. John Christopher Lowe and deputy Mr. William Cracknell. There are also articles on the sad death in 1964 of Ian Molkenthin - an event that is also mentioned in school magazines of the time."

More articles or background information for this site are always welcomed.
