A History_in_Photographs 

This 90+ page book was compiled by Kelvin Hughes, a former pupil and teacher at Borden to coincide with the retirement of Bryan Short, the longest serving headmaster of the school, in 1998. It is a fascinating pictorial history of the school covering the whole of the twentieth century! A couple of examples of its contents are shown below.
