From VADS : "At the ceremony of presentation on Thursday 4 October 1928, the clock was set in motion by Richard H. Green. It was damaged in World War II and in September 1951, a new clock was installed.  The original clock was mounted on the tower on the road frontage in 1928 to commemorate the centenary of the foundation of the school (originally in Chrisp Street), fulfilling the original design by Sulman, of the clock tower."
