Pictures of Past Pupils

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. ( 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:-
Back Row:
G. Barnett, M. Conway, B.Martin, T.Dolby,D.Collins,B.Charles, J.Newell, B.Mawson,
F.Warnes, T.Davidson.
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

    Hi there from Australia,
    Great to see your Website & particularly the old photos. I attended Fulbridge School from the infants commencing 1951 through to the Juniors when I left to go to Kings School in 1957. The photo of class 2 in 1954, which I have enlarged to the max, Has Mr. Bailey (headmaster) on extreme right. I am sure the Teacher on the extreme left is Miss Simpson. The student top row second from left I am sure is Keith Moore, who had a younger brother David in my class.
    My mother May Austin was Mr. Baileys secretary at the school during the early-mid fifties. Mr. Bailey & his wife used to visit us at home in St. Pauls road on Sunday evenings for tea & the odd sherry. My Brother Michael also attended Fulbridge School ( he is 7 years my senior & still Kickin’ )
    I will look through some of my old pics as I am sure I have some of the 1956 Junior swimming team. I was Captain (WOW!). That year we shared the Winners Trophy with Dogsthorpe School.
    Warm Regards,
    Richard Austin (67 years young)
