In June 1919, soon after the passage of Education Act 1918, the school successfully applied for grant-earning status and became partly state-funded. As a consequence, it became necessary to introduce a composite governing board (including public representatives) and to offer free places, equal to 25 percent of the normal number of admissions.[19] In 1925, the school saw its first students enter the Oxbridge universities and changed its name to simply The Judd School.[20] Evans retired in 1928 and was replaced by Welshman Cecil Lloyd Morgan who beat 164 other applicants to a job which carried an annual salary of 650.[21][22] He oversaw a change in the curriculum such that each form was divided into two streams, of which one took Latin, the other more vocational subjects.[23] Morgan continued as many of the Judd customs as long as he could, including the tradition of donating 20 per year to send a Barnardo boy to Australia or Canada.[24]
