Former Students And Staff Make Nostalgic Return

As part of Higham Lane's 75th Anniversary celebrations, former students and staff were invited to revisit the School for a trip down memory lane.

Both parties thoroughly enjoyed their return, which included a tour of the School, and many renewed acquaintances from days gone by.

Among the returning students was Alan Sheasby, who started at Higham Lane on the day it opened in 1939, along with other pupils who attended the School in the 1940s and '50s.

The former students were interviewed by new Head Boy, Oliver Parsons, and their memories recorded on film, which will be available to view by current students and staff in September.

A number of ex-staff also took the opportunity to make a nostalgic return. These included former Headteacher, Alan Breed, and John Terry, who gave a talk on Higham Lane's now-disbanded farm which he set up while teaching at the School.

The return of former students and staff has been hailed a huge success, and put the icing on the cake of Higham Lane School's 75th Anniversary celebrations.
