LETTER: Grammar school memories from 1920s to 1970s sought for TV

Testimony Films is making a BBC4 two-parter on the history of the grammar school in Britain and we are keen to hear from readers who went to a grammar school or taught in them.

We are looking for people’s memories between the late 1920s and the 1970s.

We’re especially interested in any stories of scholarship boys and girls from humble backgrounds who really benefited from a grammar school education.

We’re interested in stories of inspirational teachers who may have helped shape the lives of the children they taught.

We’d also like to hear from those who for whatever reason feel they didn’t enjoy or benefit from their grammar school education.
