Synopsis

The story of Bryanston throws an interesting light on the social history of the last 75 years. Set in the midst of the Dorset countryside, the School was founded in 1928, with the pioneering aim of combining the best of British public school tradition with a more modern approach to education. Bryanston reflections is not only a history based on memories but also a collection of articles about the different aspects of school life, from the classroom to the playing fields, the Greek theatre to the extraordinary Norman Shaw house. There are tales of hidden spaces, secret stairways and night-time escapades. We see through the eyes of schoolboys, a countryside transformed as the nation prepares for the D-day landings and have their perspective on the austere post-war years, the rebellious Sixties and the early days of co-education. Few other schools have produced such interesting and varied alumni-leading artists, film directors, distinguished professors, senior judges, top sportsmen and the only British scientist to have won two Nobel Prizes. "Sensitive, informative and amusing, as well as being beautifully photographed and very well art directed."
