In Queenstown,, Otago, South Island. We have lived here for 14 years, previously spent 30years in Coventry, working at the Dunlop in Foleshill , Employed as a Tracer, my drawing skills were encouraged at Wheewright lane School.

My dear Dad, George Johnson, taught at Wheelwrights Lane for 30 years .. he retired after having a stroke round about 1980. He was the deputy head, running the school garden and being the one to prepare children for the dreaded 11+.  My brother Keith also attended the school for 7 years together with his friends Eddie and Robert. I even spent a couple of weeks there shadowing various teachers, preparing for my own career in education. I would welcome any memories of both my Dad and brother. Thank you.

I attended Wheelwright Lane from 2004-2011 and loved it! I often talk about the ‘old days’ and laugh about all the memories I have there. It’s so nice to see that majority of the staff still work there! I’d love to come back and see what’s changed, would definitely be a trip down memory lane.

I left this lovely school in 1962 to go to Nicholas Chamberlain and cried nearly every day of the 1st half term My claims to fame are breaking Mr Rowleys window when playing rounders and falling face 1st off the playground apparatus! Thereafter being called ‘swallow dive Nelly’ by Mr Griffiths! Anyone out there remember that? Happy days! Fond memories would love a reunion!

I have very fond memories of this school which I attended from 1961-67 when I moved up to President Kennedy. From the outside it appears to have changed very little. I remember the house groups well they were named after Cars made in Coventry: Jaguar was Red, Rover (my house group) Yellow, Triumph Green and Vanguard Blue. Linda I think your sister Della was in Vanguard.

I attended Wheelwright lane school 1961-63 when I left to go Keresley Newlands High school, and was in Mr Johnson’s class. I’m sure we had house groups could somebody help me as to the names please? Vanguard comes to mind but can’t remember the others.

I was there till 1967, Mr. Rowley was the headmaster and after an unblemished few years, I was caught carving my name on a desk and was promptly sent to Mr. Rowley who gave me the slipper lol. A lot of years later Mr. Roderick took the photos at my first marriage. I always look back at my time there with fond memories, and had some good friends who mostly went to President kennedy and I went to Ashgreen.

I attended your school from 1965-1971, then I moved to Norfolk. I am delighted the school is still going strong. I have great memories of my friends and teachers and loved school dinners. Mr Rowley was the headmaster. I expect that nothing is left of what I remember about the building and having separate entrances for girls and boys and separate playgrounds, not forgetting the outside toilets. If ever I end up coming back to Warwickshire I will definitely have to drive past. Keep up the good work. Happy New Year.

Well done to all year 6 on their outstanding performance of Shakespeare rocks, we throughly enjoyed it especially the boys in dresses. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of the staff for all their hard work and dedication,help and support with my beth, I am sad she is leaving primary school but I am also very proud of her achievements throughout. We have had our difficulties, which we have overcome and I’m truly thankful to Mrs Browne for all her help and support in helping me, I didn’t in all honesty think we would get past it but we did. Mrs Browne is so supportive she goes above and beyond her role to help and support others a truly lovely lady of whom I will still have the pleasure of seeing her everyday in September thank you Mrs Browne from the bottom of my heart for everything. I would also like to thank Mrs Essex for her continued support over the year in helping beth and also Mrs Blour (not sure if I spelt that correctly).

I was a pupil at Wheelwright Lane between 1946 and 48 when Mr. Ward and then Mr. Rowley were headteachers. Before going to college I also spent a year as a student teacher, which proved very helpful during my training in London. I’m delighted to see that the school appears to be going from strength to strength and would like to send everyone my best wishes.

Really enjoyed the Year 2 assembly and think this is a great idea. Lovely to see the result of their hard work this term. The smaller adult crowd of more familiar faces seemed to be a bit less scary for the children to perform to.

A school leaver in 2002, now living in London. Turning a dull Monday morning into a trip down memory lane, it’s great to see this fantastic primary school doing so well! Also a nice surprise to see teachers still here from when i attended. A first-class website to go with a first-class school!

Looks really good. Easy to use. Very colourful. Hopefully the children will enjoy using it. Just a quick question. I was a student at the school, leaving in December 1978. Moving to Cheshire with my family. I now live in Australia. I am just enquiring about an old teacher – Mrs Andrews. Would you have an information on this teacher?
