Knowle students from class of 76 invited to reunion

Solihull Editorial 9th Oct, 2015 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

FORMER Knowle pupils from Arden School have been invited to experience a blast from the past at a special school reunion.

A group of old friends have joined forces in a bid to track down fellow ex-students who took their exams during the hottest summer of the century in 1976.

All students apart of the year group which attended the school between 1971 and 1976 have been invited to the Leavers Reunion Party being held on April 30 at the Greswolde Arms Hotel, in Knowle.

Jackie Harmer, formerly known as Starkey, is helping to organise the event. She said they were also looking to track down a number of teachers, specifically Miss Ward, Mr Earl, Mr Stockton, Mr Pritchard and Mr Orrett.

She added if anyone knew someone who was apart of their year group or how to contact them she would appreciate it if they would pass on the message.

Jackie said: “The class of 1971 were the intake which experienced the changing of Arden School from a very modest comprehensive establishment into a more advanced learning one under the new headship of the then new headteacher Mr Bennett.

“We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting up next year.”
