GV II*

War memorial. 1904. By sculptor Alfred Drury. Limestone ashlar and bronze figure. Gothic Revival-style plinth. A square plinth has angle buttresses into pinnacles, linked by swept labels with crockets and finials, over bronze panels, to a panelled top with a cornice, and an armoured standing figure holding a sword and shield. A very fine example, overlooking the cricket pitch and exemplifying the patriotic and chivalric spirit of the C19 public school movement. Chivalry played an important part in the school's code since John Percival came from Rugby to be its first headmaster in 1862.
