"In A Class of His Own" - A book about the life and service of Douglas Cameron

The book was launched on 27th June 2021 and is a 144 page history of Douglas’s dedicated life to LRGS, as a physics teacher, housemaster, and cricket coach. OL Paul Fitton has written a chapter on Doug’s many years with the Lancashire Cricket Federation. OL Martin Alexander has written the opening chapter on Doug’s early life before he began teaching in 1953. There are many contributions from OLs from the 1950s to the last year of his life, recalling his teaching, coaching and what they owe to him; from his staff colleagues and from Headmasters plus photographs of some of his most successful XIs, an OL team, and some more recent school cricketers. The Appendix contains Bas Salmon’s tribute on Doug’s retirement, Shaun Higgin’s article on LRGS cricket, Ian’s tribute to Mary and Doug’s obituary, the memories of cousin Dave Cameron, and of Paul Fitton.

The Old Lancastrian Club is open to any former pupil of the school. All new members receive an Old Lancastrian tie and the Old Lancastrian Newsletter. The £15 annual subscription fee will entitle you to an annual newsletter as well as invitations and news of the latest OL events.

Alumni Survey

In November we undertook a survey of alumni as part of our Feasibility Study.  This was to gain an independent review and recommendations about the school’s plans for our 550th anniversary, and of the fundraising ability of school and its partners.  Thank you to all alumni who took part in the study.  Your feedback has been extremely helpful in developing our plans.  A summary of the findings is below.
