Memories are made of this
106 years and still counting, but can you help
Selby High School is busy establishing a new archive of its treasured memorabilia that has been collected during the school’s illustrious 106 year history.
Miss Sarah Burgess, Subject Leader for History, is also the school’s archivist. She has painstakingly catalogued and time preserved each of the items.
If you have any photographs or other items of memorabilia, such as magazines, reports, items of uniform, exercise books, newspaper cuttings etc. that you would be willing to let the school have or take a copy of, then please contact Miss Sarah Burgess either by telephoning 01757 703327 Extension 862 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, we are trying to establish the first name of Miss H Longworth who was the Headmistress of the school between September 1953 and August 1960. Was it Harriet, Henrietta, Hester, Hannah or something else? If you know the answer please let Sarah know. This will be the final piece in the jigsaw of the names and periods of tenure of the school’s nine permanent and four acting Headteachers, to date, since the school was founded in 1908.
