I hope you enjoyed reading about my escapades at school all those years ago, and if they brought back any memories of your own, I very much hope they were pleasant ones!

If you have any comments, suggestions or feedback - or if you're an ex-pupil like me - I'd love to hear from you:
drop me a line at Thanks!

(Leamington College for Boys ex-pupil 1959-1966)


Born in Hornchurch (Essex), I went to Corsham County Primary School (Wiltshire) and Minden Row Junior School (Hong Kong) before becoming a pupil at Leamington College for Boys in 1959.

Probably the earliest photographic record of me as a schoolboy!

Obviously a posed shot, which was taken I think in 1955/56.
I was then in the Infants' Class aged seven.

Captured on camera here with a slightly quizzical expression.
The photo was taken in July 1958: I was aged nine.
