Bangor Grammar (the end of an era) 17/11/2012

The school moved to new premises on the site of the old Gransha Boy's School. There was a Grammarians dinner held in the assembly hall on Friday 16th November 2012, followed by an open day at the school on Saturday 17th, a last chance for former pupils to see round their old classrooms. These are the photos of my visit
