Ermysted's Grammar School, Skipton, Yorks

I attended at Ermysted's from 1959 to 1966.

My first experience of computing was in the sixth form when we visited a computer lab at Bradford (it may have been a pegasus). We were permitted to puch up on paper tape programs which we had previously written, and feed them into the machine. I had written a program to convert numbers into binary notation, but was distressed to discover that rounding errors caused lots of unwanted 9's to appear in my output.


I took GCE examinations at "O", "A" and "S" levels and the Cambridge University Entrance Examination, obtaining results as follows:
