Ideal Mementos

We have a number of items available for purchase.

Old Novaportan ties can be purchased online from our uniform suppliers School Shop Direct. They also supply golf umbrellas and hessian bags with the school crest.

‘Mr Adams’ Free Grammar School’ is the hardback book written by former Headmaster Mr David Taylor and Mrs Ruth Taylor, detailing the history of the school. It is an interesting and also entertaining read – highly recommended! It can be purchased at £10.95 (+ £2.50 postage & packing).

We also have available silver, hallmarked cufflinks featuring the school crest, a plaque and photographs of school and of Longford Hall and pitches.

All are very tasteful and are ideal mementos of school.

School Photographs

We are delighted to be able to offer re-prints of whole School Photographs for most years from as far back as 1923. These are available to order at £40.00 each.

If you’d like to purchase whole school photos, house or class photos from your time at Adams’ you can do so via the Gillman and Soame Imagebank.

Old Novaportan Magazine Archive

Old Novaportan John Pemberton has undertaken a project to digitise all our archived Old Novaportan magazines. We are greatly indebted to John for all his hard work, the result of which is that we can now make available back issues of the Old Novaportan from 1930 through to 1993.

There is one exception: we are missing one issue of the Old Novaportan from July 1933, volume 22, No2. If there is any former pupil in possession of this issue we would love to hear from him.

We are happy to make a disc available to Old Novaportans and are inviting orders for a seven-year run of the publication. If you wish to have a disc please indicate to us the years required. We would request a donation of a minimum of £15.
