This year-specific GGS72PPC74 news site is discontinued
Please visit the combined PriorGuisborians Alumni News blog
The GGS72PPC74 News Blog is a fresh web site created in October 2010 to share news, stories and pictures amongst the Guisborough Grammar School Class of 1972 and the Prior Pursglove College Class of 1974. (It replaces an earlier site – preserved here – which was created to share news and pictures of our 2002 reunion. All the pictures from that site are also now available in our new gallery, linked above.)
Guisborough Grammar School was founded by Prior Pursglove of Guisborough Priory in 1561. It continued as a boys Grammar School until 1971, the year before we the Class of GGS72PPC74 entered the 6th form, when it became Prior Pursglove College and admitted girls for the first time. This November 1973 article from Yorkshire Life includes a history.
Not surprisingly after all this time, only a few have irregular contact with each other, but there have been a several small scale reunions (mainly for those local to London), and occasionally we have succeeded in getting a whole class reunion together back in Guisborough.
