Grammar School's New Head

The new head for the Gunnersbury Catholic grammar school, near the Great West Road, is a Scotsmen, a native of Ayrshire.—The Rev. Robert James McClimerit, M.A. (Cantab.). Ordained 22 years ago after a brilliant ecclesiastical and academic career at St. Edmund's, Old Hall, and Cambridge, Fr. McCliment served as a chaplain in the Great War in Italy as well as on the western front.

He was mentioned in dispatches and later awarded the 0.B.E., and after de mobilisation, served for a brief period at Spanish Place before being appointed to the Cardinal Vaughan school. Kensington, with ('anon J. U. Vance, M.A., Ph.D. —an old Stamford Hill boy.

There, Fr. McCliment became so popular with the scholars that there was regret mixed with the congratulations from all the boys when they learned of his "going West," to Gunnersbury.

As reported a few weeks ago in the Catholic Herald, a big extension for the

school is pending through a £17,000 bequest from a parishioner of Isleworth. Fr. W. Roche of Marylebone opened the school about a dozen years ago, when he was rector at Brentford.
