  • Yes Mr Crann, he was my teacher in 1970/71 in the “top” class (ie the final year). I think he was the teacher I had fondest memories of, he was very well liked. We went to the British Museum that year to see the Tutankhamun exhibition. Are you a relative Mark Crann? Is he still alive?
    The first few photos look quite old. Where do they come from and are they definitely 1970s? I remember going to a pageant there before I started at the school, I think it was 1965. We used to do “music and movement” in the hall or outdoors in the summer on the bit of grass opposite the school assembly hall. That’s what photo 5 reminds me of.

  • Thank you so much for creating this page and the photographs are wonderful. I started at Howe Dell Primary School in 1970 and I loved everyday there. Have grown up with a love of nature, the arts and historic architecture! Wonderful memories. I remember all the teachers too, listed by Adam…..even a dinner lady called Mrs Christmas!

  • Not in this photo, but some of the teachers from 1977 were; Mrs Gately, Mrs Tester, Mrs Morris, Mrs Veal, Mrs Southam (possibly) the secretaries were Mrs Meopham and Mrs Greenfield (I think) under Miss Mathews.
