Colin Tattersall (Mad Carue) - Photos of the school from 1951- Colin says - "I found these pics as I was having a clean out they are I think 1950-1 on a educational trip to the south coast “Dorset” plus a couple of the school I am sorry that they are of such low resolution but that’s how it was in those days, I think Mr Lambley’s christian name was Derek. B Villiers was known as Titch Villiers.From what I remember Mr Lambley taught us French and Sports and was a thoroughly good sort."
John Lowe was deputy head and left the school c 1957 to become head at Willenhall Wood Junior school in Coventry.
Earlsdon House when the dorms were named after areas of Coventry.
From an e mail from Geoffrey Barber: - "I was at Wyre Farm Camp school in Blount House from September 1955 until September 1957.
I have been lucky to be recently introduced to the school website and congratulate you on the excellent format.
I have been searching for the names of some pupils of that era, notably a Neil Hilliard but could not find him and not being on Facebook I do not know where else to look. Can you help me please?
I remember Mr Langley who was my teacher, also Mr Clarke who gave me six of the best with trousers down with a Gym pump! The pictures of the pool bring back many happy memories, excepting the one where I nearly drowned!
Plus also I remember a very kind man, Mr R.T. Morris as headmaster who tried to persuade me on a Sunday tea at their white painted house to stay there as I had won a scholarship to go to Henry VIII school back at Coventry which is where I went."
