AN OTLEY school wants to hear from past winners of a scholarship that’s been running since 1948.

The Kerr Scholarship has been presented to the highest attaining student or students at Prince Henry’s Grammar School for the past 70 years.

It is named after Dr Samuel Kerr, who made a bequest to fund an annual prize following his death - and the names of all of the winners are displayed in the school’s Main Hall.

Prince Henry’s is hoping to find out what became of each of the 81 Kerr scholars as part of celebrations to mark 100 years since the school’s re-opening.

Assistant Headteacher Stephen Clarkson said: “Whilst exploring the archives we found an original oil painting of Dr Kerr and information about his life. This got us wondering about what happened to the winners of the award given in his name.

“As part of our 100 year re-opening celebration we would like to try to find out what happened to as many of the Kerr scholars as possible.

“We hope to collate their stories and use these to inspire our current and future students.”

Scholarship winners, or anyone who has details that could help, are asked to call (01943) 463524 or send an e-mail to: .

The school is aiming to hold a 100 Years exhibition, which will be open to the public, at the end of June.
