Farnborough Grammar School Annual Record - Index

In 1964 the decision was taken, partly on budgetary grounds, to reduce the size of ‘Al-Fa’, abandon ‘Beta’ and occasionally produce a separate volume to record the original writings which previously graced both magazines. Forty years later I can see no merit in this decision and in a supreme act of creative genius an unidentified Philistine decided to break with the 28 year old name (and its association with Aldershot & Farnborough) and call the new publication ‘Farnborough Grammar School Annual Record’. The end product was a much smaller document with far less emphasis on sport and no illustrations. It is hard to see the change as anything other than a retrograde step.
