Old Wulfrunians of WGS


Not sure who may be on this group for whom the following images will be relevant - Founder's Day 1977
I was a pupil at WGS 1950 - 1955 approx. Anyone remember me? I'd like to get in touch with some of the lads I was at school with - er - with whom I was at school . . .
Class of '89 competing in Japan with daughters. #Aikido #nevertooold
Chapeau to all those who got their GCSE results today. 37 year ago, I managed to scrape 5 A's, 2 B's and 2 C's, which was quite a good result back in those days and allowed me into the sixth form to study Maths, Physics and Chemistry. Back in the day, some students would be put into the remove', which basically meant they had to start the sixth form, but also retake their GCE's (as they were ) at Xmas, before being allowed into the sixth form proper. The requirement for sixth form was 5 grade C's or above....How times have changed. Below is a link to the GCE English paper we sat that year on 25th and 26th June 1979, in an upstairs classroom in the Hallmark buidling, with the chairs facing away from the windows to avoid distractions.
Saw this flyer in a shop in Barmouth. I'm thinking that this is likely to be our very own Jim Chugg (JPAC), who taught geography at the school in the 1970s and now lives in Bryncruig, near Tywyn, Wales.

Old Wulfrunians of Wolverhampton Grammar School Old Wulfrunians of Wolverhampton Grammar School. This site is dedicated to offering a vehicle for Old Wulfrunians to communicate with the school and more importantly each other, in a celebration of what makes the WGS community so special.

We also recognise that this community is not just made up of alumni, so we very much hope that past parents will also use this site to establish (or re-establish) links with the school they so generously supported in the past. We would like this site to be a catalyst from which will spark a host of events including year group reunions, Coast 2 Coast reunions, big band reunions, theatrical reunions
