Houghton Grammar School's Book of Honour: Houghton-le-Spring Heritage Society www.houghtonlespring.org.uk

THE BOOK OF HONOUR

Houghton Grammar School’s Book of Honour was presented to the school by the Old Scholars’ Association to record outstanding achievement (civic or academic) or heroism.

Houghton Heritage Society and Kepier are working together to revive the Book of Honour, which originally only had five entries.

We would welcome nominations of alumni for inclusion in the Book from the following Houghton schools:

- Houghton (Grammar) School
- Sancroft School
- Bernard Gilpin School (aka HSMS)
- Houghton Kepier School.
