LOOKING FOR: DR ANNA WOLLF by Robbie Robertson (Member 10251967) on 16-Sep-2010
I believe that Anna Wollf was based in Streatham some years ago and I have been tasked to try and track down Dr Anna Wollf, (not sure if this is the correct spelling of her name), on behalf of an old schoolfriend of mine called Michael Kelly (formerly Muir). Michael is an author who lives in Leslie, Fife, Scotland and was going to give a reading of his materials at the Edinburgh Festival around 19... more >>

Hi there SW16, Ive been trying hard to find any trace of Shelley MacGregor who lived in Benhurst Court off Leigham Ct Rd, way back in the early 70's. She was Afro/white european mixed & we used to play together. We must have both been about 9 or 10.

Streatham Grammer School by Roger Maxwell (Member 10196989) on 6-Nov-2006
Does anyone remember Streatham Grammer School on (I think) the Mitcham Road. I was there during the late 1940s?   
  • Re: Streatham Grammer School by andrew tait (Member 10003194) on 26-Apr-2007
    Actually the school was in Mitcham Lane on the site that is now occupied by St. Leonards C of E School (I was a pupil at St Leonards until 1954). St. Leonards was originally on the corner of Ambleside Avenue and Mitcham Lane. I don't know when Streatham Grammar school closed nor when St. Leonards moved.

  • Re: Streatham Grammer School by Clive Hopkinson (Member 10229452) on 21-Jul-2008
    I also attended Streatham Grammar School in the 1940's. I remember it was in Mitchum Lane. My memory is of quite a large schoolroom with blackboard and easel and I am sure there were two classes in the same room with blackboards at opposite ends.

  • Re: Streatham Grammer School by Ken Mason (Member 10255139) on 3-Dec-2010
    I had a friend who went to Streatham Grammar School. I think he started there in about 1958 and after about a year it closed and he was transferred to the relatively new Tulse Hill Comprehensive School. My guess therefore is that Streatham Grammer closed in 1959.

    My father, Thomas H Turner, attended Streatham Grammar School before he joined the RAF during WWII. I remember my dad referring to Freddie Watts, the head master.

    His father was a self-employed motor engineer at 25 Streatham Hill before the house and premises were compulsorily purchased after the war for redevelopment. I have been trying to identify the original site. No. 25 is now "Corner Fiel... more >>

  • Re: Streatham Grammer School by Tony French (Member 10192452) on 24-Mar-2011
    I went to Streatham Grammar School but only for a few months, possibly a term, because when the Headmaster died; was it Mr Watts?; the school closed. I went on to Glenbrook Primary School, I think, in either 1962 or 63, so S.G.S. must have closed in either one of those years. I now live in Worthing, and believe it or not, a bloke who owned a small ironmongers around the corner, I discovered, went... more >>

    I lived at 29 Tooting Bec Gardens, Streatham, SW16 with my parents from about 1946-1948 and attended Streatham Grammar School for a short while before we all moved to the country in Essex.

    I was at the school from 1951 - 52 when we moved from the area. I have vivid memories of the school. I was in the long upstairs classroom which housed two classes. My recollection is that the upsatirs part at least was a wooden structure. My teacher was Miss Harrison, a spinsterly lady in a black suit and her hair tied back in a bun. She always reminded my of a salvation army lady. Miss Hutch... more >>

  • Re: Streatham Grammer School by Keith Patrick (Member 10268285) on 9-Dec-2011
    To eat the food one had to take some textbooks out of a desk in the classroom and place them underneat the sloping lid to form a table top. Gutsy supervised lunches and told us 'eat what you want and leave the rest' - a refreshing attitude since at my later state primary school one had to eat everything one was given - even the slimy greens and even if it made you sick! Hope this helps revive some memories...

  • Re: Streatham Grammer School by Nick Beard (Member 10272819) on 17-Apr-2012
    I went to Streatham School and had to leave I think in 1961 as Dr Watts the headmaster passed away and the school was sold for development.
    I remember 2 Masters.Mr Gutteridge rather Victorian but he was wonderful man and Mr Dadswell who used to take the boys to summer camp.
    I now live in Australia and am semi retired.

    I attended Streathan Grammer until it closed around 1960. I remember Mr. Freddie Gutheridge teaching me Shakespeare and Mr. Watts teaching Latin and German.
    Mr. Watts would sometimes come to school with his Masons robe and walk up and down the aisles with his cane. Although I have lived in Australia since 1972 I still keep in touch with an old school mate.
