Peter (at Hymers 1959 – 1969) and Christopher (at Hymers 1950 – 1960) Wilson visited the college on Friday 24th November.
The Wilson brothers visited Hymers
on Friday 24th November. Peter and Christopher initially visited to donate their grandfather’s (C.C Wilson) high jump trophy to the school archives and decided to take the opportunity to have a look around. The trophy was won in 1899, making C.C Wilson amongst our very first wave of pupils at the school.

Whilst travelling to the UK
on business, Peter took
the opportunity to return
