Below are some of the attendees at the 2011 Annual Reunion.


Colin Knight writes -

"When we left St. Nicholas Grammar School, Northwood, we became ‘old boys’. When you are 18 years old that expression has a completely different meaning compared to the over sixties crowd that met at a Rickmansworth golf club yesterday. As I understand the development of the reunion, Chris Prior, a long time expat, had been in touch with Geoff Horn and said he and his wife would be in Blighty for the first time in years. Geoff took the initiative and contacted all those of our school era that he could find and the word was passed on. It was amazing how you could recognise instantly people who you haven't seen for 45 years! It was a most enjoyable occasion and afterwards I was also able to meet Ken's wife Brenda. We had last met about 40 years ago. All three of us were in the same primary school class at the age of five - Lady Bankes Junior School, Ruislip Manor.

Suspects from left to right: Peter Ross, Malcolm Money, Tony Westray, Colin Knight, Chris Prior, Nick Kohl, Geoff Horn, Ray Dean, Ken Davies, Richard Wyse."

A later picture of the school. Does anybody know which year?

Another later picture. Which Year? Below are details from a former pupil: -

The picture is laterally reversed (the view now is as it should have been viewed. Ed.)  It was clearly taken from just inside the boundary with Norwich Road and looking south.  St Mary’s in the background should project to the right.  The view of St Mary’s would have been obscured when the junior common room, or sixth form shed as it was more commonly known, was built on the grass area in the foreground in about 1962.  There are still fresh marks on the stage door where it was planed to remove four letter words.  I think the photograph was taken in about 1960/61.
