A School fit for a PM

Primary school that taught Prime Minister John Major

Location: Merton Park, SW20 9AD

Description: Sir John Major, KG, CH, ACIB (born 29 March 1943) served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party from 1990 to 1997.

Before becoming the Prime Minister, Major was a Cabinet Minister under Margaret Thatcher. He served for brief periods as the Foreign Secretary and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, making him one of the few people to have served in three of the four Great Offices of State of the UK.

Major was born at the St. Helier Hospital in Carshalton, the son of former Music Hall performer Tom Major-Ball (ne Abraham Thomas Ball), who was 64 years old when John was born.

He was christened as John Roy Major, but only 'John' is shown on his birth certificate. He used his middle name Roy until the early 1980s.

And it was at this very school that perhaps John's political masterplan was born - Rutlish Grammar School in Merton - or perhaps he just went to school there!
