Email me with a JPeg photo, of you at the school, as long as you are now over 18 years old, and I will include it in this gallery. The photo must be of you in the school, on the school grounds, on a school trip etc ie: school related. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Please include your name and the years you attended Fulbridge. If you include any interesting ‘stand-out’ memories, I will publish them as well.

My name is John Newell and I was a pupil at Fulbridge School, Infants and Juniors from 1951-1957. I now live in Leigh-on-sea, Essex.
I was fascinated by seeing your website and by a few old photographs.
It was a tradition in the 1950’s that an annual football match was played
between a combined Fulbridge & Dogsthorpe Team, and a combined team
from Isle of Ely schools. I can remember as a third year junior watching the match
in 1956, although I can’t remember who won, and hoping that I would be selected
for the following year’s game. Thankfully I was, and I am happy to send you a photo of the
combined team, together with all their names. They are as follows:-
G. Barnett, M. Conway, B.Martin, T.Dolby,D.Collins,B.Charles, J.Newell, B.Mawson,
Front Row: B.Parker, R. McKenna, M.Brown, P.Black, T.Perkins, B. Morton.
We won 5-0. We also won the away game 2-0.
I hope you find this little bit of school history interesting
