From the blurb - 

Wimbledon College occupies an interesting and modestly significant place in the story of Catholic education in Britain. Founded in 1892 by the Society of Jesus, towards the end of a period of strong Catholic revivalism in the 19th century, it has changed from a small independent school, to a grammar, to a large comprehensive. This book – an expansion of the history produced for the institution’s centenary – covers those 125 years and relates how the College has not lost its individuality or the purpose of its mission: to produce thoughtful and fulfilled young people who, in the spirit of St Ignatius, are “Men for Others”.
