    Exam Cupboard

    In the past, teaching stalwarts such as Trevor Pritchard or Alan Reilly held the keys to this innocuous but vitally-important little cupboard, hiding, as it does, at the side of the Guy Nelson Hall.

    In 2013 the former head of chemistry, Bob Fair, supervises external examinations and still has to make sure that there is an adequate supply of every type of stationery required by the different examination boards, every data book that might be needed, a good supply of tags to tie candidates’ scripts together, laminated cards bearing the rules and regulations so that the ever-changing flood of staff invigilators are not in the dark about what is or is not allowed – in fact, just about everything except the actual examination papers themselves, which are kept under high security elsewhere in the school.
