The Story of Al-Fa - 21st Anniversary, 1936 to 1957
By B. Jowett, B.A.

In 1957 the school was 21 years old and its doors were thrown open to the public on 13th July of that year and numerous events and displays were arranged. Mr. Jowett wrote a history of the school to mark the occasion and thanks to Mike Websell hanging on to his copy it is available to read here.
