The original photo has Jarrow Springfield 1968 on the bottom.
Someone posted it was during 1968 but as the phot was taken in May 1968, I would have thought the change would have been at the start of the school year in September 1967. Just a guess.
It changed when I was there. I left in 1969. Always remember Masterman (the head) saying when it was announced that although it was to be a comprehensive, he would still class it as a grammar school.
Bit of pride as he must have thought it was a downgrade for him.
