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.
Their form teacher in the picture taken in one of the school's two "quads" - quadrangles - was Mr Fred Cooper.
The anonymous sender to school yard lists all but two of those in the picture.
- 1 Illegal Dagenham puppy farm owners sentenced
- 2 Council tax rebates totalling £2m remain unclaimed, authority says
- 3 London among areas where drought is declared
- 4 Dagenham fire families receive thousands in donated cash
- 5 Item thrown from A13 bridge smashes windscreen and injures driver
- 6 Liz Truss visits Dagenham youth centre on Tory leadership campaign trail
- 7 'An incredible privilege’: Dagenham and Rainham MP Jon Cruddas on 21 years of service
- 8 ‘It’s like a warzone’: Extent of damage to Ballards Road homes on show following blaze which destroyed 14 houses
- 9 Campaign launched for young people anxious about A Level and GSCE results
- 10 Jailed: Eight east London offenders locked up in July
