Laindon Park Primary School, Reports

Plus Laindon High Road School Honour Certificates

Somehow seem to have mislaid one report, the one showing 61 pupils in class, but have found two more instead. Please note that these are pre-adoption so I am named Smith not Joy as now.

Who knew? Almost teachers’ pet at Laindon High Road School

Well obviously I wasn’t bad/naughty all of the time and here is the evidence to back up that remark.  I realize there is not a lot of evidence but it’s more that I thought and I was only there for 4 years.

  • Some other names I have remembered, (about your age,) Veronica Nightingale, Joan?Cooper, Frank Flint and his sister Joan, Shealer Gregory (who’s parents had the grocers in Basildon Road; and I believe married John Harding who lived in Wash Road;) Molly Smith (who later married Ray Petty). I’ll add more if I think of them. J.B.

  • Hi Leslie, I was at “Donaldsons” (sometimes known as “Donald Ducks”) from 1945 until 1951, so a bit before you, but my sister Pat was there about that time, as was Glyn Swift, Jeff Petty, his sister Joan, John Peters, (whose mum was sometimes on playground duty) Alan? Starling, I know this ‘cos we all lived in “Bracken Mount” and played a lot together (except for John Peters whose dad was “Something in the City” so him and his brother Roy weren’t allowed to “play out”) J.B.

    Editor: ‘Donaldsons’ was only ever a nickname for the school. So called after Margaret Donaldson a long standing Head Mistress. The correct name of the school was and still is Laindon Park School.

  • I was at LPPS from 1949 to 1955 when I was exiled to the West Country thanks to Basildon Dev. Corp. Miss Davis, Mrs Card, Mrs Hudson, Miss Thomas, Mrs Hughes, Mr Stone, Mr Blakemore and occasionally Mrs Wilson were the teachers. Mrs Daniels was the school secretary but I cannot remember the names of the kitchen or playground staff. Mr Tilley was the caretaker.

  • I would like to hear from anyone who attended St Nicholas Lane (Laindon Park) primary school from 1951 until 1956. The headmaster was Mr Wilson and my form teacher was Mr (or Mrs) Card I think? Where are all my class mates now I wonder?
