TALK about old school.
One Almondbury school reunion is going back to the 40s...and 50s...and 60s...and 70s!
After a successful 80s and 90s reunion at King James’s School last year, former pupil Gary Woodhouse, 42, is organising another party.
This time he’s inviting all those who were born before 1962, and who attended the school from the 40s up to the 70s.
He met up with former pupils and staff to swap stories and old photos of the school to refresh memories ahead of the event.
Together with the Old Almondburians’ Society Gary has organised the September 25 reunion in the school hall.
He said: “We are limited to a maximum of 400 people, so we recommend buying tickets early to avoid disappointment as the reunion last year sold out two months before the event.”
King James’s School was an all-boys Grammar School until the last intake of 11-year-old boys in 1972.
It opened its doors to girls in the sixth form – taking A Level students in 1974.
In 1976 it became a comprehensive school for children from Lepton, Kirkheaton, Flockton and Grange Moor.
Tickets are £5 each, payable by credit/debit card or cheque from the Old Almondburians’ Society website www.oas.org.uk or call 07758219435.
