Elm Grove Juniors mid 70's and the Patcham Fawcett , left 79, we muxt have been at the same school at least some of the time.Perhaps we even knew each other, like u fond memories of Elm Grove- Mrs Cole has always stuck in my mind!

Elm Grove Infants and Juniors. Westlain Grammar

Elm Grove School ? The enemy. Rightly put in their place with a 6-0 thumping in 1977.

I'm a SLOB, a St Luke's Old Boy (1973-1981). I suppose Queen's Park should have been the rivals. But they were more the Crawley to your Palace.

I went to Stanley Deason afterwards.

The teachers, the kids and the fact I had to go there. I was a very introverted kid

I was in Mrs C's class. I also remember Mr Hawker, Mrs Large, Mrs Batchelor and Val Hennessey who went on to become a columnist for the Sunday Mail. I knew a Nick who had a stepbrother (Clive I think?).

My Dad and I did the plumbing at the Knoll from 1973 right up to when it closed.
We used to call it the borstal.
If I had to go back to the van for anything I would take a hammer with me for protection :ohmy:
Some highlights:
They set fire to the lagging in the roof space.
They nicked a ladder while we were on the roof.
They let the handbrake off on a painters van which crashed into the double doors in the playground.
They smashed the cubicles over time leading it looking like an open Roman communal bog.
:moo:
