No, but I was there from 1962 until 1966, It's strange that there is not more about the school on this site. Was "Chunky" Chadwick still headmaster when you were there?

The school opened around 1962 , My son went there for a short time until we moved away from the area. The school blazers were very distinctive i think they were grey with a purple school badge. Originally the school gave priority to children with a religious background and favoured the Catholic religion.. Don't know if that is still the case, which i very much doubt. Anyway I was very impressed with the school although my son was only there a short time. M Dunnett

BY the way Catleughs was THE posh shop where my King's Lynn High School uniform was bought. The shop was very quaint and upper class, I felt I had to be very quiet when going for my uniform it was quite an experience.

Yip Chunky was still there between 68 and 73, as well as Mr Beaumont, Mr Dawes, Mr Pearce etc ... good times indeed ! And yes there is a lack of info about this school ! Anyone got any photos ? There are a few posted on the Friends Reunited site, take a look !

I went there for 2yrs and left school in 1959 so it must have opened in 1957.....as I went there when it first opened and was mainly for country children to start with.


I went to the girls and my brother to the boys

I think Albert (or was it Arthur) Chadwick was the first and only headmaster there. He died a few years ago aged 90 if I recall correctly.

I seem to recall the uniform was a grey blazer with purple edging and grey trousers and matching cap, looked really silly then, but we had to wear it! my brother who went to Gaywood Park used to take the mick out of us who went there.

I looked on my old report book, his initals were AC Chadwick ... the teachers when I was there were, Mr Beaumont (english lit), Mr Inson (music), Mr Pearce (science), Mr Monen (history), Mr Dawes (maths), Mr Page (geog), Mr Unsworth (tech drawing), Mr Sawyer (woodwork), Mr Broom (metalwork)

Indeed I remember Mr Playford as well, was he not 'Arts n Crafts ? ..... also Mr Chapman and Mr Gasby as PE Teachers . The teachers in those days used to be quite brutal, flinging bits of chalk, board rubbers in my direction on many occassions .. remember the strap and slipper not forgetting Chadwicks 'cane' .... ouch ! ... teachers today would get jailed for assult, but looking back it did us no harm, just good memories !

certainly opened before 1962 as left in that year - and 1957 seems about right. teachers then were certainly 'chunky' chadwick as head...remember beaumont for maths as was dawes believe that taught at diff levels....certainly sawyer for woodwork and broom for metalwork...lupson sticks in my mind for p.e. as caught throwing shoes in changing rooms with 2 other school mates and we suffered by being hit by the amount of shoes being thrown - certainly sticks in the mind as it did elsewhere on the day !!.......happy days eh.
