Paul McCartney’s school book from when he was a teenager in the Liverpool Institute High School for Boys is up for auction at a Beatles memorabilia auction.

The exercise book not only has his doodles in it but also essays giving his tuppence on John Milton’s Paradise Lost along with teacher’s comments in it.

“I’d answer the question first before challenging its truth,” his teacher Mr Durband tells him on page three of the exercise book.

He was no dosser and achieved marks from B- to B++ for his work.

The item has come on the market after a family decided to sell it, the family said they “have had the book for as long as they can remember” .

Auctioneers estimate that it may fetch £10,000.

Other items on sale include; a pair of gold-rimmed glasses, without the lenses, worn by John Lennon.
Lennon gave the glasses to designer Barry Finch, his friend, in 1967.

A Beatles poster bought last year at a garage sale for $7 expected to fetch £12,000, a George Harrison cassette, containing previously unheard tracks written and recorded in 1978, estimated to fetch £3,000.

The auction will take place March 26.
