Wow, a blast from the past! Lived in Wildenrath, really enjoyed these years. Kent School was great with Cherie Ashbridge, Lorraine Maddocks, Amanda Shepherd, Neil Tuite and the black board rubber whizzing across the science room for some reason.. , hot summers and sports - out run by Marie-ann, swimming galas at Rheindahlen. Fun times.

I think it was Gordon Vaughan who was head boy at Kent I dont think his brother was a pupil there. I also think I remember a Joe Green being head boy.

I loved the place. Went to a lot of schools and definitely Kent and a school in Australia were the very best for me. I just wish I could have stayed longer but 2 years in one place was a very long time for us. I remember Martin Gibson and Carolyn Harris at Kent. Anyone else remember them?? I am terrible at names!! Carolyn I have found, met uo with her at 16 in Australia then reconnected again in my 40s via the internet! Martin, never heard from him again apart from a few letters when I first left. He was a boarder and I can't really remember which house, keep thinking Deal but not sure if that'd be right, his Dad was stationed I think in Munchen (maybe RAF I seem to remember). I was a day boy travelling from Monchengladbach. Anyway my long winded point is if anyone knows of Martins whereabouts I would love to now! Happy to give my details etc :-) Malc

I only have vague memories of the school, lived in Zeebruge Street Krefeld (may have spelt that wrong) but remember such good friends and hated leaving to move back to England, memory not brilliant with names but Carmel Quain, Karen Orr - good friends - the school was so huge and bit daunting from memory but remember feeling very grown up in the black uniform - loved it there

Hiya all, I was at Kent between 82 and 85, started in 2RL with Sam Ball, James 'Stubbs' Stables, 3JPh, then 4/5BW hung around with Alan Young, Richard P Grant. Played rugby, went on the tour to Yorkshire (83 I think), went on a couple of ski trips. Live Erklenz then Wilnenrath GSO near Jane Godfrey, Paul Livett, Guy Morris, Michelle Hancock, Colin Roberts. Have a younger sister Louise who started about 84 (ish). Loved every minute, best wishes to all fellow Kenties who knew me and the many thousands who don't. Stay safe everyone :-)

I was horrified to read some of the history of the school recently, I didn't much like it there and was a boarder at Chatham House. I understand it has now been demolished

I have such good memories of Kent School, although I have forgotten so many names!! I lived in Krefeld (St Tonis) and travelled to Kent everyday. I lived for any type of sports at school (it was the only thing I was good at) and have to reiterate a comment that Robert Mongey made about being a twat in those days - I certainly do remember that!! We went out together for a while but he was a wild one! But still good memories and lots of fun and laughter. cant remember too many names apart from the following that lived in Krefeld: Ian Anderson, Karen ?? (who lived opposite me in the big block of flats), Kevin White and Kevin Whitehouse who were in the year below me. I am sorting out some photographs so once I have scanned them I will post for all to see!!

To Debbie Hall - Hi!
I too was in 1CG & 2CG from Sept 76 to Feb 78.
I am still in touch with Kim Daimond and you may also remember Wayne Evans in our tutor group, who I am in touch with on Facebook.
As for Russell Gardiner, I was good friends with him at Wilders and I still have a skiing holiday photo of him from Feb 77 at Obertsdorf.
Good to see a familiar name! (Miss Gooch told me off once for firing a pea shooter at Donna Stevens!)

Hi all, just checking in again after a prolonged absence. Lynne Hyde we were in the same tutor group with Mr Price. We continued to write to each other for a while after I left - still have the letters somewhere lol. Other names I remember are Karen Weller, Michelle Boog-Whiteside, Annaliese Lucas and Andy Mason. Sadly the memory is obviously failing as there were more than that in the class lol.
Also hello to all recent Kentie friends, hope you are all keeping well.

Names: Sylvia Hardwick, Pamela Martin, Julia Lacklison, Martin Lacklison, Gordon Martin, Charlie Eade, Mr. Lovegrove, Des Lacklison.

We were refugees from the Biafra conflict and lived in the houses behind the school. Today I found out - from this site -what I'd always feared about that sliver of a park with a wrought iron gate that what we knew then as a memorial was actually a burial ground with many secrets from the Nazi era of euthanasia and murder etc.

Left Kent School to attend school in Africa in 1972

What a great page. I lived in Harrier way in Wildenrath and my best friends were Mark & Micheal Watts (Watty).
Best friends also included Harry Smith and Michael Smith who could speak really good German. I boarded at Deal for last year. Kent school in hindsight was special and were certainly the best days of my life although at 52 I have had a great life. Married, 2 lovely kids and a wife I adore and I a career in the RAF. I guess I'm just lucky! Love to hear from anyone who remembers me.

I was in the founding class at Kent when it first opened as an overspill from Queens in Rheindalen. I loved my time there - great staff, great grounds, great food. Every lunchtime a friend and i walked the Deputy Head's collie dog, Tess round the school gardens!
I am currently writing a book about my experiences being brought up with a parent in the RAF and how life differed from that of children with parents in civvy street.

I would like to include memories and recollections from others with a similar background, not necessarily just the Air Force but also the army and navy as well If you can add any quirky details or personal stories please email ( or phone (00267-72106224) me.

Christine Lyon and Pete Yeardley - I think both of you were there at the same time as I was. I am the same age as you Christine, so very likely. I was in Rochester House, started part way through 3rd year and finished after U6th in 1977. Lived in Krefeld and was in the same year as Paul Boon, Don Walcott, Sandra deSouza, Gay Thompson, Diane Webster, Lyn Corderoy, Steve Sparks, Murray Smythe, Phil Allen, Pat Ball, Kay French, Terry Magee, Mandy Poole, Tina Bushell, Simon Ashley, Tim Simmons and others whose names I have forgotten. Also knew Pam and Debbie leCarpentier, Jackie Fraser and Tina Nicholls from deGreiff strasse, although they were all younger. Have a sister and a brother who also went to Kent (Mark - now 53 and Dawn - now 52) and a much younger sister Hayley, who didn't go there!

mark We lived in Krefeld too and I remember the tour well. In 63 "Pupil Surplus" from Queens moved out from Queens lower to establish the New Kent School Hostert. Additionally 1 st. Years came from St. Tönis, M Gladbach, Viersen, Wildenrath, D'dorf. I lived Sollbrüggen Str. 1 in Krefeld-Bockum and we had 2 American Boys, Dave Tully Queens Uupper and brother Rick Kent from Kr. Lynn. Last stop was De Greiff-Str. Little to no time for play considering homework. Up at 6 in the morning an lates 9.30 lights out. (I was tired!). It was the best school for many including myself though I certainly can't complain about the efforts taken by my following schools in UK, Catterick Camp and especially Lytchett Minster School, Dorset, which was kind enough to accommodate me for my final exams. Wonder if Werner and Günter (Drivers) and tubby Fritz all GSO were still on the tour? Terribble busses! But we had nothing better those days.
