    • In a biography by Fiona Mead, she says "Alfred Driver trained as a teacher and from 1915 to 1953, he was head of Maisemore Church of England School, near Gloucester. Under his leadership, the school was transformed into a centre of excellence for academic achievement and rural studies. The pupils grew huge amounts of vegetables, raised chickens and pigs and kept bees. Their success attracted much publicity and visitors, many from abroad. In addition Alfred Driver was a pillar of the community in many other ways and was awarded an MBE in 1934."
