Goodrich school Annexe next to the Lordship Lane Estate in the 1950s. Single storey L shaped building in Firemans Alley behind the BT building. Did anybody go to this school or have photos of it please? Any memories very welcome. Thank you.

Hi Stroller , I think you have a tricky task ahead of you .I wonder if Andy Doidge who wrote this [www.goodrich.org.uk] could help at all .I'm afraid I have no contact details for him but maybe he's findable on Facebook ?

There does seem to be a huge amount of info on schools available ,but might be a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack !

are you looking mainly for images/photos ? Or names of pupils ?

Hi intexasatthemoment. Thank you for your previous help giving me a map showing the school on a 1960s map. I have made 8 enquiries to the national archives, Dulwich College estate archives, Dulwich Society, Brian Green and Southwark libraries archives all without success. I'm looking for images and photos of the school not necessarily pupils. My sister and I both went to the school. I will try and trace Andy Doidge on Facebook but it's not looking hopeful as you say. Many thanks again for your interest in my search.

I think because it was an annexe it may not appear in records as such but just be listed as Goodrich School ?

Maybe ask Goodrich school if they know how to contact Andy and if so if they would be prepared to pass your contact details on to him with your query ?

this site has lots of discussion and posts from ppl who were at school in the area in the 1950/60'S .[www.camberwellboroughcouncil.co.uk]

as do these threads [www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk]
[www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk]

You might recognise someone you know ? Interesting reading anyway .



good luck !
