|Farnborough Grammar School came into existence in September 1936 when the Aldershot County High School
outgrew its premises in Highfield Avenue and the boys were relocated to Farnborough. The A.C.H.S. building was new in 1912 although it was then called the Aldershot
Secondary School. It was co-educational from 1912 through to 1936 and most of its male teaching staff transferred to Farnborough, among them their Headmaster,
A.E. Chapman, and his deputy, F.G. Solloway. Mr. Solloway had been at Aldershot High since the day it opened.|
A booklet written by school master Basil Jowett in 1957 to commemorate F.G.S.s 21st anniversary provides a comprehensive history of the school and its predecessors.
