Downley School, Wycombe, Bucks

Hello everyone,

My husbands family are very much rooted in Wycombe/Stokenchurch and when his grandmother moved from her house (in Downley, where her mother and g.mother were also born) we unearthed a great hoard of treasure - old photos, diaries, certificates etc. Well, we have managed to name and roughly date the majority of photos but there are still several which are mysteries! One in particular, is a very old photograph of Downley School. There is a sign in the picture which simply reads 'Downley School No. 4' and no date. We don't recognise anyone in the photo and wonder how to date it? or who would be best to ask about the date? Does anyone on here have any knowledge of the old Downley School and who may be able to help us please? Also does anyone know whether there are any archives from the school kept anywhere (the original school was knocked down several years ago). I have asked at the Bucks info centre but with no luck.

Thanks for your time,
