Comments: I was in J, with the likes of Kevin Bartlett, Les Hammond, Tim Watkins, Jonathan Jervis and Phil Bainbridge. Loved my time there and have very fond memories. Lots of very decent teachers, but my favourite was Neil Martin, even though I often messed around in his lessons. Now a solicitor for my sins, and having hung up my boots a while ago, I'm also heavily involved in my spare time with Woking FC.

Comments: started in September 1971 and left after completing my A levels in 1978 (to go to Birmingham uni to read Maths) . Was in Fearon, and fond memories of my friends, the teachers and my time there. Mr May for maths, and John Long for A level English were the most influential teachers I guess.
