the first Sunday service was held in the Chapel on 12 December 1948
before that, morning and Sunday services were held in the Dining Hall
the Chapel was a gift to the school from the RAF,
who had requisitioned the whole school 1940-45
the Chapel was a conversion of the RAF's gymnasium,
fitted out with stained-glass, altar, choir-stalls and seating
the Chapel was dedicated on Monday 7 March 1949
these panels were lit from behind by fluorescent lighting, so they shone even for winter Evensong
