We welcomed ex-students John Cornell and friends who had organised a reunion. They were students at the Ingatestone Secondary Modern School in 1960 and were keen to take a trip down memory lane. John explained that he lived in the Meadows at the back of the school and actually watched the land being levelled to allow the school to be built in the late 1950s. They met with the Headteacher and had a tour with Sixth Formers to see how much the school has changed over the years.
John has had a very successful career as a professional photographer. He took many photographs of his school days during the last 2 years he spent here and he shared these with the Headteacher, along with a video of Sports Day.
