I cannot believe I left the above school 50 years ago this month! 

On Saturday 14th July 2018 I will be attending the 152nd annual reunion lunch at the school which is attended by about 80 plus people each year.  A link if anyone wants more details these can be accessed here.

'Absque Labore Nihil', I have an acute sense of irony looking at this picture, as these 'boys' are all my contemporaries (1961-66). Ironic, as geography was the only subject I excelled in at the Grammar (I had Grade 1 at 'O' Level) but mucked up most of the rest and left in some disgrace at Xmas 1966. In October 1980 I was accepted at Sussex as a 'Mature Unqualified Student' (no 'A' levels') and I achieved a 2i BA degree in...Geography, then went on to work for Sussex adult ed. dept. in their Landscape Studies degree. I went to visit Harry Brogden at his home in The Martlets and he commented "You did not have a fruitful time at the School as I remember, what are you doing now? "Running a university department headmaster!" (not strictly true but I had to say it for the effect!). Eventually I took my doctorate in 2010...in Geography! Good to see all those faces from 50 years ago. Where DID John Small get those geek glasses?

Great news received today from Andy Sloggett that news of Keith Bolus's death was greatly exaggerated and that he is alive and well!
