HOLME Valley Grammar School opened on April 29, 1933.
It made remarkable progress and quickly achieved equal academic status with other, much longer-established Huddersfield grammar schools.
Its first head, Kenneth Brain, held the position for 30 years and retired in 1963.
These girls are pictured at the junior (years one to three) speech day in December, 1948.
The guest speaker and prize-giver was one of the governors, Mrs E Butterworth.
She remarked on the ‘high prestige’ gained by the school in the short period of its existence. HVGS became Honley High School in 1976.
This edition of All Our Yesterdays looks at a ‘golden era’ of education from 1948-50, part of an increasingly optimistic nation’s recovery from a devastating war.
