Nigel Goadfrey writes and would be very pleased to hear from old mates from his days at Purley. Let me know if you want his email address via the comments box below.
Great to find your web site!
When doing a search for Purley high school I notice that results are Heaviside slanted towards the corporal punishment record!
I added to that record in 77!
I just attended the 4th year 76-77 and then went to a nautical school on Anglesey for the 5thyear, and then joined the Royal Navy at age 16.
I remember putting down DOGS as a reference without asking him! I had written him a letter during my year away so he did write a reference - he did his National Service in the navy.
I am disappointed to have missed the reunion in 2007.
Martin Collins, Roland Jones, Simon Plummer and Austin Slattery were my mates from Woodcote and then at Purley.
I now live in South Wales, so may visit Ben's Cottage on the weekend of the 8th June when I attend a reunion of my nautical school."
