Stoneleigh South, 1st Year - 1981/1982. Miss Eliott was our tutor (took the register etc ). Very small lady. Think she went on maternity leave at the end of 1982 or early 1983 so we ended up having different tutors more or less every other year. Our registration class was in the 'S Block' (science block) where we sat 6/8 round big wooden tables. I think Mrs Brown who was the head of Stoneleigh House used to be a Miss Elliott which caused some confusion among parents.

I went to Whitley after passing the 11 plus, I was in Grove house right by the lake, it was great , some of the best times, except for the xc runs those were hell. I played in the school orchestra, and was a house prefect, oh, the power!

I went to Whitley Abbey and left in 1963. I remember that our sports teacher and keen rugby player was Reg Parry a Welshman. I believe he had a lot to do with Coventry Rugby Club. He left around 61-62 and he moved to Ash Green school where he ended as deputy head. My own kids went to Ash Green and it was lovely to meet again him after over twenty years. I believe he moved to Cornwall area in later years. I remember Fred Lewis as headmaster and Mr Lemon who took over just before I left. I was in Warwick House before Hood and Grove houses were opened.

Here is photo of the predecessor of Whitley Abbey school badge. It is a cap badge, that I have had for 65 years, for Churchfield High School, immediate predecessor of Whitley Abbey 1947-1955.

I went to Whitley Abbey after passing my 11 plus. I was in Kenilworth North and I think the Headmaster was Mr B Warne? I remember that bridge when I first went there, I used to get lost on a regular basis. The teachers used to allow us being late for a couple of weeks but then they got strict. I remember being told our timetable for the first time and thinking how am I going to remember all that. I remember the boys used to blow up the frogs and throw them at the girls. yuk When I first went there each end of the House was single sex but after a couple of years we went mixed. I remember doing canoeing on the lake and playing hockey in the snow with a white ball. lol I would love to see some photos from when I went there September 1963 to July 1967 as I left at 15, which you could do in those days. My name at school was Margaret Cox, now I am Mrs Maggie Rudd.
