The Old Almondburians
Leonard Frederick Griffiths
This solemn-looking gentleman was appointed Headmaster in 1897. He had good cause to look a bit glum: although an excellent teacher, well-liked by the boys, he was a hopeless manager who progressively left the running of the School in the hands of his Assistant Master Alfred Baker. In due course, the governors decided that enough was enough and terminated his employment in 1900.
