Mr Redston joined the school in 1921 and taught Physics (becoming Head of Physics) until his retirement in May 1960.

It is thought that Harry Redston was born Harry Rubenstein. Philip Robinson has found Harry Rubenstein in the 1901 and 1911 census returns; in 1911 (scan below) he was described as a "student teacher" living with his Russian-born parents Simon and Hannah. The parents' birthplace "Lomza" (more usually Lomzha) is now in the Bialystok region of Poland.
