Did you go to school in Walthamstow? Want to see pictures?
Pictures and stories here!
Hi I'm looking for photos of Erlind Hoxha, who went to Warwick School for boys, Walthamstow, in 2000-2003.
I need to find proof of him at that school for Home Office any help would be much appreciated.
I was a pupil at Warwick from 1960 to 1964 and remember the football team which never lost a match in the borough during them years. I think the players were John Austin, myself, Ronnie Capsey Smith, Elveyn Read, Killick Drake, Charlie Brimm ozzy but I cannot think of his name of our teacher except he took metalwork. We also had a good basketball squad coach by and the Mr Clark and Mr Maxwell was headmaster and the teachers I remember were Mrs Prince, Mr James and Mr Chaplin. There were others but age has the better of me.
I and my brother attended Warwick in the 50s. I was there between 1958 to 1962 and my brother was 1956 to 1960. The headmaster at the time was Mr Maxwell and I remember teachers such as Mr Hunter, Mr James, Mr Shepherd and the teacher in one of the photos is Mr Lovelock, the music teacher. I played in the football and the cricket team for my year and seemed to be over Salisbury Hall sports field a lot of the time. Dave Chaplin was my woodwork teacher and what he taught me has carried me a lot through life as I became a Floor Spring Mechanic repairing all sorts of doors. My name is Edwin Trott and my brother is Keith.
I used to be at Warwick School in the 1970s.
Any idea how I can get in touch with some of my old teachers?
I thought the following picture could be of interest:

Hi, i would like to put the following message on your site please. I am looking for anyone that attended the Warwick Secondary School for Girls in Brooke Road, Walthamstow E17 during 1963 - 1968. The headmistress there was Miss Hubbard. My name then was Susan Doerffer and would love to contact others from the school. My friend Rosemary attended there her surname was Titterton.

16 Jun 2010 - Hi, I taught in Walthamstow for many years at Warwick Boys School - 1965 to '88.
Here are some of the many photographs I have from my time there and hope that they may be of use. If you'd like a CD of them please let me know.
10 Jun 2010 - Dear Mr Knowles, I have just come across your great site, and wish to contribute a photo from my football days at Warwick Boys School in 1956 which may be of interest to any lads from that particular time. I remember all their names so if anybody needs them I will be happy to supply them.
I also had the pleasure of being coached by your dad and Cyril Abley when I was lucky enough to be representing the Walthamstow Boys from 1955 - 1960. I was fortunate to go on to represent London Schools in 1960, and lucky enough to pursue my dream of being a professional footballer at Crystal Palace, West Ham United and Portsmouth. Not bad for a lad from Walthamstow, and a lot of credit goes to your dad, and Cyril Abley for the encouragement and hard work in helping me become the player I was hoping to become on leaving school.
I have another photo, but unable to put my hands on it at present, which has your dad in a photo with the Walthamstow Boys 1960. As soon as I find it I will send it to you.
I also noticed a life story written by John Newell on the Memories Site, and certainly remember John at Maynard Road Primary School, and I am sure he will remember some of the lads in the Warwick Boys photo.
Like everybody from the area I have nothing but happy memories growing up in Walthamstow E17! Thanking you for your attention, and keep up the good work on the site. Kind regards,
The names of the lads:
L to R at back: Leslie Parsons, Donald Haley, Trevor Harvey, Victor Stoker, Stephen Horsey, David Hurst, David Forey
L to R front : Bernard Connelly, Michael Murrell, Alan Stephenson, John Clark, Terry Dix
