Bow School recently held a heritage day at the school in recognition of the 100 years of its existence. It was a celebration of its past and of its future – this year it moves to a state-of-the-art new school building in Twelve Trees Crescent.
Up to two hundred past and present students turned to enjoy the day. You can see pics and quotes from the day in the school magazine.
OurBow and the Geezers were on hand to video some of the ex-students about their memories of the school, and over the next few weeks we will be posting these videos on the site.
We are starting with Alex Stratton who was at the school from 1946-1950 . After school Alex started work as an indentured apprentice, and after further study, finished his working life heading up a 14-strong team of work study officers in a London Borough.
