Shortly after this photograph was published in the Echo, the then headmaster of St Barts wrote to the Loughborough Echo:

To the Editor
Sir, —Thank you for publication of the photograph of the pupils of St Bartholomew's School Quorn, of 60 years ago. Mrs King has kindly allowed me to have a copy taken so that it may be added to school collection. I would welcome the loan of other such photographs by former pupils. The school itself has long history, being first built in 1836, and the original buildings still house the majority of the children.
Yours etc
I S Gaylon

Oh if only this ‘school collection’ had survived!
