The custom of giving clothing to some of the children attending has had to be given up. The plan had been to give a smock frock and cap to boys and a bonnet and dress to girls. The school will in future be funded on the basis of attendance not achievement as in the past. In April's magazine it is reported that 3 rooms are to be added to the Master's House adjoining the Grammar School so that it can house more boarders than the 8 at present. Mr Tarrant has the contract under the supervision of Mr Wyley of Bridgnorth. In April there was a meeting at which it was decided to form a cricket club. Mr Davenport, Mr Adderley and Mr Blundell were to be asked to agree to the Club playing in the Park near to Chemshill Coppice. James LLoyd the shoemaker from Wyken is in failing health but asks for continued support. In August the vicar reports on a visit to the Sisters of St Saviour's Haggerston. An extra week's summer holiday has been given because the harvest is late. Money was returned to a number of children because of good attendance. Children living in Worfield, Wyken and Hallon will be expected to attend 15 days more than those elsewhere in the parish. Mr Wickham, the curate is leaving to take over at Alveley.
