I should take the opportunity of asking you to pass my kindest regards to Miss Billington, who was the first teacher my brother and I had at WT. Is there just a chance she will remember the Roper twins (John and David) arriving in 1944, in the same class as the Ritchie Twins (Margaret and Anne)?

Subject:

Left in 1948 to go to Ilford County High and then moved to Slough. I have just retired as Professor of Geography at Durham University after degrees at UCL and a career involving the Universities of California, Toronto and Bristol. I have rather spotty memories of the School as it was mostly wartime to begin with but I recall a bomb site in (?) Aldborough Road. I also remember a little of the Head (Mr Cowan) and quite a bit about Mrs Swain. I'd be interested to hear from anybody else of that vintage.

I was so happy to find this website as I live far away and feel very cut off from my past. I would love to know what my old class mates and teachers are doing now. I have many vivid memories of William Torbitt, including Miss Ferguson, my infant school teacher, the inedible food served up in the dinner huts, my second year teacher, Mr Eagland smoking as he taught class and Mrs Bidgood who taught us in the 3rd to 4th years. Thanks for creating this website.

Hi, I found your website using a link from Friends Reunited. It looks good. I had a great time at the school and spent all my break times, dinner times and games lessons playing football on the huge field. My brother Ian went through 2 years behind me.

Subject:

I am now known as Wendy Seeley (nee Defriend) and attended WT from1956 - 1962 if my memory (not all it was!) serves me well. I have so enjoyed reading the memories but sadly do not recognise many names other than a few older siblings of my classmates. I was amused to read about the penny crisps as they featured in my time as well. I am an Acting Head Teacher at present and will not have much time to 'play' until the holidays but will try to send some of my memories for the site then. I think you and Geoff are doing a marvellous job and I look forward to maybe getting in contact with some of my year group soon. My sister Diana seems to feature in a fair few photos but alas none of my classes! I will see if my father has any lurking in the family archives.
