My father, Harry Flegg was a teacher there for a while. My sister was there too. She was Teresa. I also attended the High School and am very emotional at seeing the old photos on this site.Any information about the Servite nuns at Goodwins Rd would be greatfully received.



See here for some old photos !

Hello everyone out there. This is my first attempt at posting a message, hope it goes okay. I found it rather spooky that my father was in the full length photo of 1937 and I was in the one taken in 1961. I can identify several people, but I shall try to get a bigger image before I start naming them.

Teachers on the 1937 photo; No1 Pop Freestone, No4 Tubby Grant; No5 Tom Bromhead; No8 Sam Gudgeon; No9 Leathem; No11 L.C.Vernon; No15 Flash Williams(I think);No16Frank Hatton.
I was a pupil from 1945 to 1953, started at age 9 in Preparity taught by G.Martin then in Transition taught by Wally Rowe followed by Entrance Exam First Form, stayed on 1 year in Sixth.
In the early days most Masters were Ex WW1 officers but this all changed shortly after the end of WW2 when we had an influx of younger more modern Masters.
My two most vivid memories are of the Tap water swimming pool and the 22 rifle range built in the bombed out top floor of the boarding end.

Looks like one of the boys had a death in the family, black diamond on his sleeve.
Havn't seen that for years, or the black strip of wood that people used to put in
their windows at such times.

The fourth teacher from the left was there when I was (1956 to 1962) and we knew him as Luke Grant. He taught Maths and was very strict. I see from other posts he was also known as Tubby Grant.

He was known as 'Luke' because of his biblical quotations, such as, "If you don't do your algebra, you won't go to heaven". He was well liked and his wisdom always shone through, for example he would give us a maths test and we would mark our own papers. When we called out the results we all had ten out of ten except Smith M.S. who, with head bowed said, "Nine, Sir". Finally Luke said, "Nine for everyone except Smith M.S. who gets ten out of ten for honesty!"

Does anyone remember a teacher at KES named W.E.J. Whitehead. He taught from 1939 to 1957?

Hello,

My Granddad was George Martin although I never met him. He was Sports master I believe, he played Football for Kings Lynn and Norwich City and Cricket for Norfolk. My Dad attended the KES and served in the RAF for 35 years from 1936 to 1969. He died two years ago at 91.

I was born in Norwich and it is my home, although I stay and work in Wolverhampton.

All the best Colin.
