Progress log

  • 19 March 2016 Continuing to finish the links in the 1970s photo gallery, I have added 16 photos from a 1977 geography field trip to Malham. These were found in the geography store cupboard in 2010. John Dunstan added a few details. Can anyone add more?
  • 9 March 2016 With Sport Relief coming up next week, I thought I would look back through the archives to see what we did in previous years. The first photos I found were in 2006, which I think was probably our first engagement with the event. All are of staff and students doing the Sport relief mile on a very sunny Friday lunchtime, not quite 10 yearsa ago, as it was held in July back in those days.
  • 8 March 2016 Science teacher Keith Williams gave me a dozen photos of camping trips and field trips in the 1970s and 1980s. I don't have much detail on the earlier ones - if anyone can confirm places that would be much appreciated.
  • 8 March 2016 Continuing to add photos to links in the 1960s pages, I have posted three photos of Malton County Modern football teams from 1964 - 66, lent to me by Trevor Wilford back in 2003. Also a programme for Toad of Toad Hall (1962).
  • 3 March 2016 Working my way through some of the missing links in the 1970s galleries, I have added 9 snaps from 1977-9, sent in by Gillian Guildford back in 2003
  • 28 February 2016 A handful of snaps from Gill Harrison (Wentworth), mainly of school trips in the late 1970s, have been added to the photo gallery.
  • 12 February 2016 I have uploaded the remainder of the photos from Robin Coulthard (1960s and 1970s), covering expeditions in the Dales and the Moors, and photos of the Rural Studies Department. Most have a few notes from Robin attached.
  • 31 January 2016 Biology and Rural Studies teacher Robin Coulthard took a number of photos during his time at Malton County Modern School, and kindly donated them to the school some years ago. I have begun to put them on the site, starting with some from the final days of Malton County Modern in 1971. More to follow, especially those of the expeditions in the Dales and the Moors.
  • 23 January 2016 I have put some photographs and a programme from the 2011 Centenary Celebration Evening on the site. Present and former students and staff gathered to mark 100 years since the opening of the Grammar School on Middlecave Road, and 40 years since the opening of Malton County Modern.
  • 16 January 2016 I have been sorting out some of the documents in the archive. The first three to be ready are biographies of three headmasters - Ernest Loraine Watt (MGS 1911-1937), Philip Taylor (MGS 1951-1971) and George Hanson (Malton County Modern 1959- 1971). Thomas Arthur Williams was already on the site. There have only been 7 headteachers since the school was rebuilt on Middlecave Road - John Gresswell, David Roberts and Robert Williams being the more recent incumbents.
  • 1 January 2016 Happy New Year. I came across a handful of Year 11 yeargroup photos from 1994 to 2006. Some have names attributed, others are anonymous. Varying quality of size and resolution just at the moment, but they are on the site.

Work in progress

You may have reached this page if you clicked a link that is not yet operational.

The website has been converted from its old format to this new one. Work started in October 2013, with a gap in December/January. It will take some time to get over 2000 photos, hundreds of documents, video and facts and figures on to the site.

Social media and RSS

I know many former students from all eras keep in touch through Facebook and other social sites. A Facebook page for Maltonians has been created (14 April 2014). The RSS feed is operational (25 Feb 2014). Other links will probably be made once the site is somewhere nearer completion. Twitter @maltonians was created on 9 May 2014.
