    The 2002 Reunion

    About 150 people attended the 2002 reunion at the High Lane School including a number of current and former teachers. Thanks to Ray Reynolds and David Moore for the organisation of the event and the management of the ticket sales and distribution. Here are the photos etc collected from the 2002 Reunion. As a result of the reunion we donated over 400 to the school fund of Haywood High. Here are further details of the reunion financial accounts.

    I must admit to being a bit disappointed with the numbers attending the re-union (only three down for my leaving year - i.e. me and two others). Despite this, I'm looking forward to the tour round what's left of the old school, and hope to recognise at least one familiar face! See you on Friday.

    I look forward to attending. I drove by the school years ago saw the name change and concluded my Stanfield years were lost. It's a pleasant surprise to see such an impressive amount of work and so many opportunities to regroup on the net. If there are any further details on the reunion please make contact. I'll contact John Houghton and some of his contacts to generate some more interest.

    I was very pleased to find this site and delighted with all the information that I have found on it. I was surprised to see once again the School Photographs from 1957 & 1959 even more so to find I was standing next to someone I came across a number of years later in a tottally different place. Small world I still live not a 100yards from the school gate. I can't get away from the place. Thanks to John Whitmore for the info to find the site.
