Carlton le Willows Grammar School Society: Leaves Online
Carlton le Willows Grammar School Society is a private society for former pupils and staff of the school in Gedling, Nottinghamshire, during its Grammar School period (1953-1974). Our site may also be of interest to those researching education in England in the fifties and sixties, in the early years of the 11+ examination system, and in the social consequences of these things. The Society organises reunion events, some for its members and some also open to the wider target group, and it also aims to foster continuing links between old friends and acquaintances and to keep the spirit of the original school alive. As well as this site it publishes a regular magazine, Salix, including memoirs, images and anecdotes provided by members.
Leaves Online and how to use it
The main site uses an HTML mechanism called 'Frames', which allow us to nest web pages inside each other and display different pages alongside each other. In particular it helps us design a very easy navigation system for visitors and helps the site load faster than otherwise. But not all visitors use browsers, and not all browsers use frames. Specialised browsers to make the web accessible to those with various disabilities, for instance, often can't use frames, and most search engines will either not follow a frame-based structure at all or only to a limited depth. This page, therefore, is provided to ensure our site is as accessible as possible - within the limited resources we have available - to everyone.
Frames form the trunk and branches of our Web tree, guiding a visitor from branch to branch and finally to the leaves - the pages you really want to read. This page simply indexes the leaves themselves. Click on a link here and you will be taken directly to the relevant page. Since the pages don't usually include their own links to others - that's the function of the frames - once you've finished with a page we recommend you use the 'Back' button on your browser's toolbar to return here to select another page. Most links within our pages are 'inserts', and will open a new browser window for the page linked to: if you close that window when you've finished with it, and then tell your browser 'Back', you'll get back here.
If you've come to this page from a search engine and are using a normal browser, we recommend you go to our front page at www.carltonlewillowsgs.org.uk to view the rest of the site in the most convenient way. You may find pages through the frames which aren't accessible from here, because some pages just won't work without frames or because, although we do our best to keep 'Leaves Online' up-to-date with the main site, that sometimes has to take a lower priority. For the same reason you might find a 'broken' link here, because we've forgotten to update it: if you do, we apologise. Please search the site via our frame-based structure: you may find the link works properly then.
