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!
New song, (composed by my friend, Johnny Gale), coming soon! It will feature Richie Strockl who is the lead singer of this excellent band -Two Bob Short -Here’s a movie with highlights from one of their recent gigs!
I am so pleased to announce that, in the new year, the choir in Parkside School, Walthamstow, will sing and record a completely new version of “Join Hands” with great singer, Billy Hardwicke.
