A PRIOR PRECEPTOR

Your Family History - - Letters -

I could not be­lieve my eyes at your ar­ti­cle on the Royal Col­lege of Pre­cep­tors in the Septem­ber is­sue ( YFH 186, p84). I took the ex­ams as a stu­dent in 1961, at a pri­vate school in Bed­ford­shire. In all my years, I have only come across one other per­son who had ever heard of, and taken, the ex­ams. I pre­sume we took them as a pre­cur­sor to the GCE ex­am­i­na­tions. I have spo­ken of it to other friends in the teach­ing pro­fes­sion, who have also never heard of the Col­lege or its ex­ams! I al­ways thought it a strange ti­tle, and now, af­ter nearly 60 years, I have an an­swer. I at­tach a copy of my cer­tifi­cate. SAN­DRA RICHARD­SON, VIA EMAIL

We’re glad you en­joyed the fea­ture, San­dra, and that it shed some light on who had been re­spon­si­ble for your ex­ams!
