The British Schools Timeline

"...a deep rooted pride and affection for the School as an institution, its traditions, School Spirit and institutional memory."
(Extract from the TBS Mission Statement)

The British Schools touches each one of us in a different way; it means something personal and quite special to every member of its ever-expanding family, comprising students, parents, staff and alumni. Yet through this variety runs a constant which unites us all and creates an unquestionable bond across the generations: the School Spirit.

The information provided so far represents Part One of the “Timeline” and consists of brief narratives, photographs and documents covering the first six decades. The accuracy of the contents is determined by the material available and has been created using some of the most relevant events in the history of The British Schools, gathered from existing material in the History Archives up to July 2007. The “Timeline” is by no means all-encompassing and is simply intended to ‘whet’ the appetite for the more comprehensive book launched during the Schools’ Centennial, entitled: “A Photographic History of the First 100 Years - The British Schools (1908-2008)”. Part Two – the remaining decades – is still under construction.
