A film made in 1965-1966 by David Hardiman (Harper House, 1961-1966) of a year at Sherborne School can now be viewed on YouTube.
The film provides a fascinating insight into school life in the 1960s and includes a brief shot of Jeremy Irons resting after finishing the inter-house cross country race (skip forward to 10.17). The film also includes views of Sherborne town including the Pack Monday Fair in Cheap Street, the sheep fair in Hound Street, sledging on the Slopes, and a train leaving Sherborne railway station.
