Class of 1954 reunion 13th October 2010

We all meet up, in twos or threes, on an irregular, regular basis throughout the year but do try and keep our October meeting date as a ‘three line whip’!   Back row= Pauline Cardwell (Butcher), Jennifer Isaacs (Cameron), Vivian Clarke (Miller), and front row = Heather Bearne (Gallannaugh) and Mary Mark (Milroy). We usually number many more but this year our number was very depleted.

Next reunion planned for Wednesday 12th October 2011 at the R.O.R.C in London


A list of past and future reunions

To help identify classes, we are using the date when the class would have generally been sixteen and taking ‘O’ Levels. Some people in that class may have left before they were sixteen but they are still part of that class. For example my class took ‘O’ Levels in 1972 so we have listed all the people who had ever been part of this class whether they were still at the school in 1972 or not.

Class of 1954

My ‘O’ level year was 1954. There were 15 of us in the Vth Form and in those days there was not much movement of pupils and we had all been together since Form III some of us earlier than that.   I started at Commonweal House in the As and Bs with Miss Chivers in September 1945.

Welcome to our website

cropped-HT.gifIf you went to Commonweal, you should be able to find yourself on one of the whole school photo’s on this site. Happy remembering! 

The site contains information about the school, how it started, its traditions, its headmistresses, its buildings, the uniform, the school song, Alfred’s day etc. etc. We have started it off but now need you to contribute any memories, photos, audio clips, video clips or anything you think would be interesting to other Old Knots.

Have fun browsing through the information.

The classes have been named according to the year in which the class took O levels or GCSE’s.

Unfortunately the “theme” I originally used on this site was discontinued and quite a few of the links have been lost. I will gradually try to get it all back in place again. If you have any photos of your class, please send them to me and I will add them,

Latest news –
