The school named above was built from the plans of the Architect - Thomas Bailey - and was opened in 1887. My paternal Grandfather - Alfred Digby Fanning - was admitted to the school at the age of 5 on 3 June 1902. At that time he was living with his parents and 3 siblings at 52 Palace Road, Penge and his father was a Commercial Traveller dealing in Fancy Stationary. Googling the school has produced a picture of same as well as a thumnail of the plans that was published in 'The Building News' dated 8 July 1887. It was a very large and dignified building and reminds me of some of the 'private' or 'boarding schools' that catered to those folks of significant wealth. What I have yet to learn of is: 1] The history of the school between 1887 and the late 1930's and 2] When did Alfred Digby Fanning leave this school? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
