Research Material

I did a quick Sunday morning search of Google Books. There are many out of copyright and searchable books on the site which can be viewed or downloaded as a pdf file alongside many with only a preview or snippet view.

I did a quick search for both Wyre Farm Camp School, Cleobury Mortimer and City of Coventry Boarding School.

A few items came up all of which only had a snippet view. I'll post the snippets here in case anyone wants to track down the relevant journals in libraries or antiquarian bookshops. They relate to the buying of the school, the staff and circuit training!

Here are the snippets and journal titles -
