Thanks, I remember it now, it's OK but I thought I had another photo of one of the Homes at Malvern, It was an annex to one of the main buildings but it was totally separate to the main building. I can't seem to find it.

Hi earlessuk
 
Welcome to the forum, I assume that you lived in Birmingham as I don't recognise the name Wilson Stuart School. Was it in Birmingham and do you live in Birmingham now?

Hi earlessuk

I also attended Wilson Stuart School in Perry Common, Birmingham between 1986 - 1988.  I was transferred there from Victoria School, Northfield as Victoria was changed into a school for the autistic. 

Martineau House was demolished around 1990, I think.  I've written a story about when I used to visit.  Maybe you would like to read it?

You didn't, by any chance go to Uffculme School as well, did you?

Wasn't Braidwood on the same campus as Victoria?  Ah no, on the Victoria campus was Longwill, George Auden and Victoria.  Braidwood was on the campus with Wilson Stuart and Priestly Smith.

Braidwood, Priestly Smith and Wilson Stuart were on the same campus. Martineau House was in Bognor Regis. As a pupil of Wilson Stuart, I visited Martineau House twice in the 1970 ish. Thank you for reminding me the name of the caretakers was Mr & Mrs Tice. It was a good time with many happy memories. We did get up to all sorts of tricks.  I would be interested in knowing who were the two male cadets who looked after us and helped us in some of our pranks.

Hi, I worked at martineau house at the time you visited and am still in touch with the people who ran it!
Would love to know who you are and which school you came down with to see if I can remember.
Must go in the loft and see if I can find my old scrap books with photos!

Hi Niknakinoonoo  :)

Really interested to find out who are as I may remember you.  I seem to recall that the owners, at the time that I visited, were called Mr and Mrs Steed.  They had two daughters, Nikki and Emma.  I think one of the Cadets at the house was called Richard?

Like I say, I'd really be interested to know who you are.

Hi yeah,
Was Carole and Alan steed, am still in touch with them, and friendly with Nikki, you're right there was a Richard there, don't think he was a cadet, a house master or something?
I was about 13/14 and came a couple of afternoons after school to help out, spoke to nikki last night she's gonna get her mum and dad to dig out photos.
I'm also called nikki.
So..... Who are you?
