Having been through that with Mr Crosland and two chemistry teachers (the second, Mr Potts, was straight out of Gordonstoun and Uni in my 2nd A level year) I found it e...

Wonderful, wonderful pics! You are cheating slightly, however, as they are not actually posted on the forum. I fear there are links to sites with even older pics and I don't think links count - but well done, all the same! Why not try and post them here - we could perhaps build up an important arch...

I gather that the Erasmus referred to here is not, as generally supposed the famous Dutch renaissance scholar, but some worthy 18th century benefactor of the foundation after whom these new (capitalised) forms were named. Not so with grecians and deputy grecians - they may have once been students o...
