St Nicks old boys reunion

When we left St. Nicholas Grammar School, Northwood, we became 'old boys'. When you are 18 years old that expression has a completely different meaning compared to the over sixties crowd that met at a Rickmansworth golf club yesterday. As I understand the development of the reunion, Chris Prior, a long time expat, had been in touch with Geoff Horn and said he and his wife would be in Blighty for the first time in years. Geoff took the initiative and contacted all those of our school era that he could find and the word was passed on. It was amazing how you could recognise instantly people who you haven't seen for 45 years! It was a most enjoyable occasion and afterwards I was also able to meet Ken's wife Brenda. We had last met about 40 years ago. All three of us were in the same primary school class at the age of five - Lady Bankes Junior School, Ruislip Manor.

  1. Coronavirus outbreak has given me time to research ST Nicholas school web sites to see if mention is made of anyone I went to school with. I started at Bourne Secondary for a year while the school was being built, moved into the new school a year later and left eventually in 1960. Anyone remember me? henry evans

    1. Hi Henry, my first year was 1959, so much later than you. Have you checked out ?
