It is believed that my father attended Plymouth College. The info on Wiki and from the "Old Plymothian" suggests that the Prep school took children from age 3 with children leaving senior school at 18? My father was born in 1913 and at that time we spelt our surname SERLE (He changed it by deed poll in the 1930's to SEARLE) I have found an enrty in the "Plymothian" of Dec 1921 for a SEARLE A.J. entering the prep school Division 4. If this is my father that would make him 8 years old at the time. Does anybody know if there addmissions registers are available anywhere?
Of course any other info on the school in the 1920's would be most welcome.
