The Old Almondburians
Arthur Pilling attended the School in the very early days before the major expansion of 1938/9 that produced the new laboratories, classrooms (N1 , N2 and N3), Art Room and Gymnasium. His family were local farmers and Arthur soon decided that he also wanted to become a dairy farmer, much to the concern of Mr Taylor Dyson at the time. However, Taylor Dyson often visited the farm and was particularly fascinated by the milking machines.

Right up to his death in 2010, Arthur remained a keen gardener and grew all his own vegetables in his back garden which he still regarded as his 'farm.'
