So what do all the former Thorntonians reckon, on it changing to a girls' house? Personally after these 5-and-a-bit years I think it's quite sad. By the way, I hope you'll be pleased to know that we did rather ell in House Singing this year. We won the partsong with 'Goodnight sweetheart', and our unison (YMCA!) came runner-up. I believe it's the first time we've won anything in that field since the 1960s.

Incidentally "Linton" on the 1962 picture is Martin Linton, now the Labour MP for Battersea.

Mr Page, the housemaster in 1962/63, had previously been housemaster of Thornton B. He moved to Thornton A, because having got married* (in 1960, I think), he found that living in West Gun Copse road (about 150 yrds away) was "too far". He was succeeded in Thornton B by Pat Cullen, who proceeded to get married himself, and for a time lived in Worthing (!).

* He married the daughter of his colleague "Boom" Macnutt (Ximenes, the crossword writer).

in the 1962 photo, I think you will find that ex Barnes B is Ledeboer, Nigel, if I remember correctly. Got his colours at rugby. His brother, Pete, remained in Barnes B, whopping the bass drum.
Paddy Cullen was also ex Barnes B, we seemed to export a lot.

It went both ways. John Watts and Noel Kirker both went from Thornton B to Barnes B.

This is Thornton B at the head of the St Matthew's Day parade in 1962. The SG Mike Pitcher had been in Th B until the previous July, he moved to Th. A. I am next to him.

coorrr...just come across this.....photo from JDS is interesting - JMC looks like I remember him as does JDS. I think this must be summer 74 ish or thinking about it 75. Peter and William Hatt-Lipscombe jump out as do the Sandys brothers and Peter (?) Oliver. I'd left the school by then but what a memory jerker!


Hopefully a photo with me on it wont appear!!!

Just seen this.
Three rows back, I believe is Peter Chapman, the year before me in my junior school, Wyborne, and behind him is David Norgrove, who has his own entry in Wikipedia.

Here's Thornton A, 1997. Mr O'Boyle, housemaster, is third row fifth from left. House captain Nick Wolstenholme in the center and Mr Phelps / Philps (?) the other side. I can't remember how to spell his last name but do remember he taught maths and could juggle. I forget the name of the CDT teacher next to Matron (I forget Matron's name too), but he was a laugh and Mr Marlow is next to him. I'm on the far left. Oh, the memories. I don't know why were on the quad for the picture, rather than outside the house though.

Whoever took that picture ought to be shot. The lighting is dreadful.
