Hoyle's Youth

Scholarship Examination Papers

A copy of the examination papers in arithmetic and English that Hoyle sat in February 1926. Hoyle failed the exam, but it turned out that there had been massive cheating in some areas of the county. Candidates from Bingley were therefore given the chance to be reassessed on appeal, and Hoyle was interviewed for a place at the Grammar School by its Headmaster, Alan Smailes.
