Hi, just had another look through Kinson School listing. Really interesting, thank you. I was there age 5, from 1972 (Mrs Oates) to 1978, leaving for senior school. I did pop back once, years ago to get one of the mugs, which was a strange experience. I do like the look of the display cabinet items, those I'd love to get a look at. I will revisit this site a lot, I'm sure. Thanks

Found the site by chance. I grew up in Kinson, on Horsham Avenue, having moved there in 1969. I left the area in 1983 when I joined the RAF.

Always like to check for new info. I attended Sunday school (with Mrs Cuss) at St.Andrews church hall in Kinson Road (adjacent to the Hillside classrooms, which were my last before leaving the school in '78). I'm not sure when the hall (& Hillside) were done away with and can't locate any pictures online. I'll keep an eye on your site in hope. Thanks.

Fascinating, thank you for compiling all this information. I have through chance resettled in kinson. Evacuated from London during WWII , my parents lived in one of the cottages adjacent to kinson school, and then moved into the lady wimborne cottage at 310 poole lane, where I grew up, so your website was of special interest to me. Thank you again.
