School Fees and Laundry List!

John Tearse posted these items on the school Facebook page. They relate to the mid 60's.

How much did it cost to send a pupil to the City of Coventry Boarding School in the mid 60's. This letter gives an insight -

Every Friday lunch time we had to prepare our laundry to be collected by the outsourced laundry service. originally they took socks but as they often got separated in the wash, we had to wash our socks by hand in the ablutions at lunch time. Instead we could send handkerchiefs - the change over is reflected in this list originally belonging to Stephen Tearse. Thanks John for these.
