It is great to discover this site for ex Kent School pupils. I have fond memories of my time at Kent School, I was in Rochester House. I was well into sport and played for a number of sports teams at the school. I boarded at Deal House - great days full of stupid antics. I have often reminiced with my family of the midnight walks and unauthorised visits to Chatham House and the school discos on Saturday nights all good fun. Does anyone remember playing snooker while we supposed to be doing prep?

I have just discovered this wonderful website and it has opened an avalanche of memories for me. I agree with all the comments: Kent was a wonderful school with serious academic credentials. Mr Ions was the Head of School and Mr Whitley the Head of 6th. I remember Mr McNulty, who seems to be a regular contributor to these pages, very well; after all, I read History A with him and Mr Martin who had the most amazing Rolling Stone record collection. Mr Napp tought economics and was also our rugby coach. I really enjoyed those rugby outings; especially the sevens tournaments. I would very much like to know where Denise and Yvonne Mestrum, Kate Weeks, Moira Gallagher, Pam Le Carpentier and "Joe Cool" are these days. Please drop me a line. I also remember mr Farqhuar(?) very well; probably the best Maths teacher I ever had.

We lived in Willich, where my father was serving with the Royal Engineers. I went to Krefeld School (60-63) and then Kent from when it opened in '63 until posting back to UK in Nov '65. Mr Ford was the Head, Mr Myhill the deputy, Mr J A Davies my form master. Mr Worrall taught us French and German, Mr Cork, maths. I remember the efforts we put in digging the long jump pit - probably much to the delight of Mr Lacklison! I visited Kent in 1977 when having joined the army I was serving in Germany - must have been a couple of years before it closed. Many fond memories of the old place. It's good to see that some of the early vintage are posting and clearly still going strong. If there's anyone from those days out there do please get in touch.
