This site is dedicated to the students & teachers of the four Newham Secondary schools I taught in before my official retirement (on health grounds) in 2004! They were - South East Ham Secondary School for Boys (1969-72) which became Brampton Manor (1972-80); Cumberland School (1980-83); and finally, Lister Community School (1983-2003).
These were amongst the best years in my life!
