Geocache Description:

This is the fifth in a series concerning Surrey schools and their famous pupils. The coordinates given are not for the cache.
You need to identify the pupil (X) and the Surrey school (Y)

Although X has experienced some degree of fame, X's father is considerably more well known. X attended a school in Surrey, and while here painted a watercolour that inspired a famous work of his father. Later, X inspired a work by another famous person when X's parents divorced.

Sadly the school no longer exists.
To find the cache you need to answer the following questions:
In what year was X born? (1ABC)
How many letters in the name of the person in the watercolour? (D)
In what year was the watercolour painted? (1EFG)

You first need to visit the site of the school at:

N51 2(G-D).(F-C+1)(C+1)(B-2) W000 2(C+D).(G+1)(E-G+1)(A-E+1)

Very close to here you will see a traditional red post box, whose number is KT followed by four numbers whose values are HJKL

The final cache can be found at:

N51 2(J-H).KH(D+L) W000 2(A-H).(K-J)(K+L)(J-H)
