  • I went to LHPH from 51 until 55. Mr Wiggins was headmaster, he was a lovely man. Teachers were Miss O’Brian, Mr Walker, Mr Richardson, Miss Wenden, to name a few.
    I was in a class with Elsie Galem, Shirley Smart, Brenda Bond, Roy Mansfield, Philip Walters, Vivian Lagdon, Robert Underhill, Jennifer Garrity, Peter Ellis. I left in 1957 when we moved. Loved that school.

  • Teddy Maitland: Now there’s a name that got lost to me over past decades. I used to think his name was Edward and was shortened to Teddy, never imagined it was Alex. Richard says you may have been in Mr Rosen’s class Upper 1B but I can’t be sure. Maybe you could confirm this or at least correct our aged memories!

  • I’ve just realised that Teddy Maitland was, I think in my class at Laindon High Road School, if only the first year 1958-9. Other than that no particular memories of Teddy, if you were in Mr Rosen’s class then I do recall you, if not you were certainly in my year. Happy Days.

  • Annette, was the headmaster whose name you’ve forgotten, Mr Wiggins?

  • I remember two brothers by the name of Maitland. The younest being Charlie whom I believe was employed by one of the Keelings in their threshing business. Would they have been any relatives of Alex(Teddy)?

  • Hi I went to Langdon Hills C P School 1957 1963 and I remember the name Micky Maitland, Annette Ryan, Vanda Ward, Denise Clarke, Mrs Willkinson, Miss O Brian and a lovley Headmaster who’s name I can’t recall. 

    The girls played in the front playground and up the far end were steps to a door we didn’t use but they made a good stage for us to sing Cliff Richard’s song Living Doll!
