Monument Hill School

Monument Hill School was established in 1907 in Maybury, Woking, Surrey.

In 1927 the school was divided in two and became a Junior School and a Secondary School of the same name.

Not many school reports survive, it is therefore interesting that the Surrey History Centre contains a report in their archive for John Crump in 1926.

In 1963 the Secondary School closed and 19 years later in 1982 the Junior School also closed.

Monument Hill School then and now.

The Surrey Herald edition 28th November 1919 reported that a Brian Halloway, aged 14, created a memorial to those from the school who fell in the Great War.

A transcript of the newspaper article can be found here.
