The above Boys' Under-15 tournament was not recognised as a British Junior Championship, but consisted mainly of local schoolchildren.

The winner was from the venue school (Chatham House School, Ramsgate - n.b. future British PM Edward Heath would have been a pupil at this school at the time the tournament was played).
