Whixley, Roll of Honour transcription:

The Roll of Honour, 1926 - 1949 for pupils at Whixley Parochial School

This Roll of honour was previously mounted in the Whixley Parochial School at Franks Lane Whixley; a very old established school (closed around 1970) now a large private house. This scholarship qualified pupils to go to the Grammar School at Knaresborough (King James Grammar) otherwise they remained at Whixley until they left schooling at 14 years of age. From 1948 onwards, however, on reaching the age of 11+, pupils went forward for secondary ecucation at either Knaresboro Grammar (if passed 11+) or alternatively to Knaresborough Secondary Modern School, and no longer continued their education at Whixley Parochial School.
