The Second World War had a major impact on schools throughout the country. Teachers joined up to fight, evacuees arrived in many places, and schools took part in military training.
The reminiscences of people who were pupils at what was then Hemel Hempstead Grammar School are contained on two pages: short versions of their stories can be found here and longer versions here. Further school memories from Stewart Dunsford are on the BBC website.
Details of former pupils who died during the war are included here.
