From time to time reunions for ex pupils and staff are organised, any details will
be published here
Percy Jackson grammar school was one of the first school to organise exchanges with
German school after the end of World War Two. There have been several exchanges over
the years and below are photographs from the 11th Jackson Stein reunion held in June
this year ( June 3rd to 7th 2013) This took place in the North East of England,
an area I know only too well. As part of the Reunion a trip to the Farne Islands
Janet Kitson Roberts liased with Outwood Academy to organise a series of tours around
the school for ex pupils. One of the last of these took place at the beginning of
December 2012. The photos below are from that trip.
