These photographs are from the period 1921 to about 1932 when J H Simpson was headmaster of Rendcomb College.
Having scrutinized these pictures we think this is the correct sequence. Subtle clues are in the height of the headmaster’s
daughters and one of the few boys with spectacles (Shown 1930 directly behind the eldest daughter, elsewhere in the
previous two pictures). None of the photographs have dates printed, so the sequence and dates may be incorrect.

This is thought to be the oldest and first Rendcomb College school photograph. It was probably taken in 1921.
The initial intake when Rendcomb College opened on 2nd June 1920, is known to have been twelve boys, reaching
twenty four in early 1921. By September 1922 there were forty boys, by 1925 to over fifty, and by 1926
increasing to over sixty. By 1930 the maximum number of sixty five for whom there was accommodation was reached.
