This web site is for pupils of the former Steyning Grammar School. It is the result of many years work by Roger Tilbury and George Barker, and sadly neither of them are still with us.
Consequently, we have created this web site to act as a public archive of all the material they gathered, accessible freely to those former pupils.
We are always keen to add to the content of the web site so if you have material that you think may be of interest please do let us know. We will arrange to scan the material and publish
it on the web site. Of course, if you have appropriate equipment, you may choose to scan the material yourself and send us digital copies.
On the web site we have the following material:-
- School Magazines (from the first Magazine in 1931-2 to 1966)
- George Barker's Newsletters from 2007 onwards
- Current news items
