Reply to Geoff Sanders (Aug 10, 2019).

Hi there! Anthony Piper here. I was in Mr Hoare's class 3H in 1961.
If you look at the class photo on the website I am 2nd row from the back standing next to Robert Scourfield and just below Alcock.

I remember the name Sanders. A boy who used to get cross when it was mispronounced as Saunders.

Some of the masters were
Mr Chalky White (history)
Mr Shag Whitten (English)
Mr Gel Elliott (music/French)
Mr Snoz Westmoreland (PE/geography).

Other boys were
Quirk
Townsend
Mills
Suckling
Lambert-Gorwyn
Peacock
Daniels.

Best wishes - Tony Piper.

Scourfield and \I used to eat our packed lunches in the gallery for a long time - then go walking over to the observatory.

David Goodes, I remember you well, we shared the same years. I joined the Army in 76, and ended up in the Int Corps as a language specialist. (Who’d have thought). Still working in export sales and engineering, can’t imagine retiring.

Hi all. I have just come across this website. I was at Roan Boys from 1970 to 1977. Friends I can remember from school - Graham Hay, Martin Sharp, Andy Jewell, Kerry Hutchins, Michael Lay, Rob Taylor (a.k.a. "Gamma", plus others. Teachers Mr Witten (English), Mr Copson (Latin), Mr Hoare and Mr Greenberg (both French), Mr James and Mr Bednarz(?) both Physics, Mr Dolan (Chemistry), Mr Rouncefield (Geography) plus many others.

I remember cross-country runs in Greenwich Park and went on to represent the school at this sport as well as the 400m - Kerry Hutchins usually had the edge on me for speed - just!

The day I left, after my last A-level, we moved to Sussex so I lost touch with everyone from school. I served in the Royal Navy for a few years then trained as a teacher. I taught Physics for 28 years in Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire and am now retired.
