Bay House

Life and Times of Gosport County Grammar...

A Book on Bay House?

The Grammar School, was opened in 1901 in was then the Education Offices in Walpole Road, now SEAQRCH, Local Studies Centre & Gallery. From its inception until the mid 1950’s, the school had only two headmasters. I believe the first was Mr H R F Keating, and the other was Mr Alan Walker, who lived until recently, I believe, in Beech Grove. By C R Jeffery 2001

I've discovered that the music was written by  Ernest Douglass FRCO, and the words by S H Barker B.Litt. It was published by Novello & Co at an unknown date, but thought to be shortly before 2nd World War, as it was written in honour of the first headmaster, Leslie Keating, who retired in about 1937.

This info was taken from www.davemack.supanet.com/bayhouse/bhs1.htm where there is more details, including the words (which hardly any of us would forget anyway, as it was sung so often) and the 'alternative words (ditto!!!)
