A tuck shop is a small retailer selling food, especially when it is within a school.

Prehistory

Before a tuck shop was set up within Boston Grammar School, students gave that name to Saunby's shop, owned by Len Saunby, which was near the school gate on South End. It was also known at some time to students as "The Red Shop".

Tuck shop chronology

The various incarnations of the tuck shop went as follows.

The Pavilion was renovated around 2011 and the tuck shop was not relocated to a new home despite promises at the time, possibly because of Health and Safety regulations. (during the era of Paul Marsh as headmaster)

The tuck shop helped to raise £100,000 between 1972 and 2011
