So pleased to see so many ex-pupils enjoyed Kent. I recognise so many of the names. I taught for some 41 years in seven different schools in various countries but Kent was by far the best experience. My wife, Julia, was the "Sister" up in Sick Bay for several years. Best wishes to the site.

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 (dallasnash@yahoo.com) or phone (00267-72106224) me. I can also be reached via Skype. My Skype ID is dallasbotswana.

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.

Actually I was never at the School but lived in the Naafi Hostel next to the playground at the front. The building has been knocked down now. We used to know, if we woke up and heard kids playing, that we were late for work and had missed the Naafi bus that used to pick us up and take us to JHQ!!! Opposite was a pub where we would have a few beers and play poker at lunchtime on Saturdays!!!! Alan Vaughan who used to be Head Boy and his brother Gordon are friends of mine and so too is Tony Cooper who I have known since 1969!. This is a really good site!!

We lived at RAF Wildenrath in the GSO Quarters. Kent was probably my favourite school. Certainly didn't settle back in UK.

Hi All,

Was there in the mid seventies, part of the Ramstein kids. Spent the time at Deal house. Have patchy memories. Disco's on a Friday night at Deal or Chatham. Going to the "flics" on a Saturday night or the "blue" pool on a Sunday. It was one of 14 schools due to all the moves in those days. Remember the youth club in the cellar on a Wednesday night. Seem to remember they opened up the second floor of the 3rd Year's block as a rest room with a table tennis table behind the main buildings on my last year.

Spark any memories ?

I was at Kent for 3 years - 1st to 3rd year, 1970 - July 1973. Was in 1C2, 2C2 & 3C2. Lived at RAF Bruggen. Best school days of my life. The best 3 years of my childhood. Was 11yrs - 14yrs. Now I'm 54yrs!! Trying to remember some of my friends - Sandra Willoughby, Pauline Ellis, Elizabeth Goodhall, Sigrid Baxter, Pamela & Marcia. And my boyfriends - Garry, Paul & David. Remember some teachers - Cowell 1C2 form tutor, Oxen, Miller, McNulty, Clough (PE), Ellis (RE). Great school at the time. Such a shame about the building.
