Onslow Secondary Modern School
By Barry Cross
I went to Onslow Secondary Modern School from age 11 to age 15 as I elected not to stay on another year, and left after my 15th birthday on 5th May 1963. I started there after my 11th birthday which was 5th May 1959, as I did not passing the 11 plus exam.
I am trying to locate the history of Onslow school especially photographic, looking the official Onslow/St. Audrey School website it states that Onslow was founded in 1961.
1961 was the year of my 13th birthday and I do not recall going to any other Secondary School from the age of 11  to 13, and I have to say that Onslow had to be there in 1959 for me to go there.
Is there anyone who went to Onslow School for any of the same years as me with hopefully a better memory of their school days than I?
Is there anyone with a good full history of Onslow School hopefully with photos of this period?
I have/had an old school photo of me taken by the school photographer that I’ll add when I can get it scanned but I have warn the unwary that its not for the faint hearted.
