Ryeish Green School ( Spencers Wood), celebrating the centenary of

Spencers Wood Local History Group, 2010, A4, 60pp

This is a fascinating story of the growth of a local elementary council school through the decades of change, from a country secondary modern school into a successful comprehansive. After only a century of existence it was closed this year as a result of a decision by Wkingham unitary authority. Old school log books, managers' minutes and memories of former pupils and staff are combined with facts and photos to create a must-have book for all those who were associated with the school, the local area and the history of the whole of Berkshire.
