WE go back more than 40 years for this week's Days of the Old School Yard, which comes from the former Plaistow Grammar School.

The school, in Prince Regent Lane, Plaistow, became Cumberland Comprehensive when Newham's grammar schools became comprehensive way back in 1972.

Those who were left from this lot when they left in the summer of that year were the last to leave as grammar school pupils.

They started at the school in 1965, so this was their third year at the school, which is now Newham Sixth Form college.
