The senior year for most graduates was Form V, at the end of which students wrote the Senior Cambridge exams in each subject, sent from Cambridge University in England. Some Senior Cambridge grads would continue on to the smaller, academically-focused "Higher School Certificate", a two-year pre-university programme.

This section shows the 1948 HC class (from 1946 and 1947 SC students), and the 1949 HC class (from 1947 and 1948 SC students).

Mr Ralph Laltoo was the form master of the HC classes. ODE TO LALTOO
