Our two Headmasters meet - Sports Day Wednesday July 21st 1937
First mention of Mr. Hamilton?
This term began on September 15th., when we welcomed our new Head, Mr. R.W. Hamilton, who comes to us from Bishop Auckland. We would offer to him our best wishes for his happiness here with us, and we hope his reign may be marked by years of successful progress in all the real things for which our School stands.

Labor Ipse Voluptas"
"Find pleasure in the work itself" was the school motto suggested by the headmaster at the 1922 Speech Day. He made the comment that he was lucky to have colleagues who readily and with enthusiasm co-operated with his every wish. They were all united in their aims, with no friction, and he failed to understand the criticisms sometimes levelled at secondary teachers concerning the work they did. At his school, the teachers could be found voluntarily working late into the evening and deserved credit for that.
