School Reunion To Be Held

Friday September 5 2014

A REUNION for former pupils of a now-demolished school will be held on September 6.

The Oaks Secondary School in Kendray closed in 1989, having been used a backdrop for John Godber's film, My Kingdom for a Horse, shortly before it closed.

Jacqui Winder (nee Doherty), is organising the reunion at Underground, at the back of The Londoner on Shambles Street, to mark the 25th anniversary of the school's closure.

It will be from 7pm to 12pm and anyone who attended the school in the 1970s and 80s is welcome.

The theme is high school prom and prom dresses and suits should be worn. Partners are welcome. 

Contact Jacqui on Facebook with any questions.

I was a pupil there 1969-1974. I now teach in Plymouth. I am taking my daughter to Birmingham university tomorrow and was thinking of popping up the M1. It was a great school and there were a couple of teachers there who helped me get to where I am now.

You don't need to come in a prom dress just come along and meet old friends

I was there for the final year before it closed. I didn't know anything about this and now I won't be able to go :(. It would have been nice to catch up with old friends.
