The retirement of P. B. Troughton


Percy Troughton had served in the R.A.F during the war and after a spell as headmaster of a small rural school in Dorset he moved to Wollaston where he was the last headmaster to occupy the School House.  During his time the number of pupils reached a record of 420, making it one of the largest primary schools in Worcestershire.  He encouraged music and sport in the school and was one of the founders of the inter-school sports in Stourbridge.  In his time the school had an orchestra of about 70 players.  He saw the buildings extended with the new hall, classrooms, toilet accommodation and offices for the head and secretary.  He served as a churchwarden and secretary of the P.C.C., president of the Stourbridge Association of the National Union of Teachers and retired in 1974.  The text above is taken from the School Log-book and shows his last entry.
