1933 MG J2 Sports Car Surprise

Pupils at The Croft Preparatory School turned back time when they came to school dressed in 1930’s style clothing, to celebrate the school’s 80th birthday.  The girls, who looked glorious in cotton printed dresses, ankle socks and hair ribbons, and the boys, resplendent in striped knit shirts, shorts and caps, were all very surprised to find a 1933 MG J2 sports car in their playground.  The car had been very kindly loaned to The Croft for the day by a Croft parent, and co-incidentally had been built in the same month the school had opened in 1933.  The children couldn’t resist admiring the sublime black sports car, wondering what it would be like to drive!

The Croft is holding a birthday picnic on Saturday 8 June for former pupils and staff.  We would be delighted if you could join our Alumni Day, which will be held at school, between 11.30am and 3.30pm.  For further details please visit our website or contact the office on 01789 293795.
