Sport was the heart of life outside the classroom in Guisborough Grammar School. The school magazine is full of reports on the sporting triumphs and tragedies of the school teams, and school houses and individual students competed for trophies each year. Sport continued to be important when the grammar school became Prior Pursglove College in 1971.
In the archive, we have a wonderful collection of sporting photographs and memorabilia dating back to the nineteenth century. These are organised here by sport, with the football photographs divided over several albums as there are so many. Photographs are listed chronologically within albums where we know the date.
Can you help?
With help from alumni and staff, we have put names to some of the people in these photographs, but we would like to be able to name many more. If you recognise anyone in these photographs, please send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Did you play in one of the grammar school or college teams? Would you like to share your sporty memories? If so, please get in touch as we'd love to hear from you.
Coming soon - more photographs of school and college sports!
