As a callow youth I attended this august institution, which no longer exists. Does anyone else out there remember this seat of learning and it's illustrious record of academic achievement(NOT).

Peckham Manor School. Did that become Warwick Park and now the Academy @ Peckham? If so you were a rough bunch but no worse than us...William Penn (Billy Biro)

Yes, I believe that's the case. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who actually went to the school.

My ex-husband went there in the early 80's. It was a boys school then, and Peckham Girls was accross the road. All I remember him saying is that they always won school sports competitions and had a kick ass football team.

I went ther in the late 60's and early 70's. We were unbeatable at all sports. Our sports master famously said, what we lacked in finesse, we more than made up for in aggression!!

As i know nothing about facebook, how do you access it? Does your info go back to the late 60's and early 70's?

Thanks

I went to Peckham Manor from Thomas Carlton(Adys rd) as they amalgamated to
become Warwick Park in the early eighties.I presume due to falling school rolls.
My educatiom promptly went downhill from then on.

I went to PM from 70 - 75. It was a tough school and race tension was an everyday event. Some of the teachers cared but many of them were tired of the challenge.

Perhaps it was just me, but I think many of us graduated with a 'don't take no for an answer' attitude. I remember my first day, all in my new uniform. I had 5 fights that day, we were like wolves deciding the pecking order. As a small white kid with glasses it was important to show I was not one to be a target. It worked, Over the next 5 years I only had a handful more. I hated that place. it looked like a prison.

I Live in Oregon now and have a teen of my own. I made sure he attended a school with teachers that cared, well designed environment and surrounded by a beautiful park setting with every recreational facility any boy could want. He loves his school.

I was at Peckham Manor from 1960 to 1965. It was all boys, and the girls were across the road at Peckham Girls school. The only good thing I remember about the school was the school orchestra, I played the trombone, and the yearly school play.

The one bit of scandal was that a french teacher was made pregnant by the Head of Upper School. he was a retired major and still married.

I left without any O levels, but finished up as a university lecturer. I now run a boarding kennels and train gun dogs in South West France

Yeah the 1.1-8 system was just wrong. I was in in 1.7 to 5.7 (don't think it went to 6.7 did it?) it encouraged classism, those in .8 thought they were so special and we all kinda looked a little down on numbers below us. A bad system that encouraged elitism.

I remember getting banned from the school dinners for the rest of the year once for starting a food fight that really made a mess of the first floor hall. I went on to starting chalk fights in the art room. Lol

Anyone remember that science teachers name who was a former football player? Ooowww I just remembered.. mr Merrett. A really cool guy, made it almost livable.

Tell us your favorite teachers if you can remember.

I went to peckham manor from 1963 to 1968 , and for a ginger haired boy with glasses and a bad stammer , it was hell on earth , that hellhole nearly drove me to suicide , i still have flashbacks to this day , that school was for twisted sadistic monsters who bullied me every school day for 6 long years , i met one of those creeps some years ago , and he had a shock , instead of the little weed in glasses ,he saw a 6ft well muscled man with smashing blonde bird on his arm , he tried to show me up , but i took him outside that pub , and took out my revenge on his face , needlessly to say , i left him in a bloody mess .
Yes that school taught me some good lessons for life :- 1 don't trust anybody
2 Do not make friends
3 work hard and fight to keep what you work for .
4 don't take shit from anybody .
Iam now a 4th dan in karate , own my own company , and am known as a complete and utter bastard .

At least 3 of the 4 lessons robmoluneux learned at Peckham Manor School are on my 'must have' list for my son's school. Shame it no longer exists.

I am really jealous of my sons school, track, tennis courts, lake, streams, MIXED!!!! No uniforms and he drives there. I was going to post a pic but it won't let me >choose file. He's 17 now and the other day I asked him how many fights he had at school since starting. He looked at me wide eyed "fights" he said, none of course. That certainly is not all American schools, but it seems to be his. Lucky bugger.

Would like to contact anyone from 70-75 forms 1.7 to 6.7.
