I attended Markhams Chase in the fifties, along with my twin brother Simon (Moore), I believe we must have started there in either 1957 or 1958, (our birthday is October, so not sure whether we started school at nearly 5 or nearly 6) along with Paul Perry, Alan Cockle, Susan Craddock, Corinne Busher etc.
My mum had been a pupil of Miss Duke at Laindon School many years before. I have a computer print of a class photo that was sent to me by someone from those days, I will try to scan it in and post it. We left in 64 to go to Barstable School, I think quite a lot of the class passed the 11+ that year and went to either Barstable or Fryerns. Our 4th year teacher at Markhams Chase was Mr Evans and I think I recall an infant teacher named Miss Lee (or Leigh).
