  • I was a pupil at Hampden from 1957 until my move away to Slough in 1959. I stayed a lot with my grandparents on the other side of the railway station and I have some very good memories of the school. Along with Dudley Freshwater and Christopher Billing we formed a Helpers Club for elderly, disabled residents and those who just were grateful for our help. We met on Wednesday after school. I was Mr Measday’s monitor, such a meticulous with his demeanour. I also appeared in the school panto with “Dance Macabre” as we danced for the audience, ie parents -, teachers and fellow pupils. I can honestly say that I had good friends of my own age and the teachers were superb. Team spirit was key. I also remember when two pupils lost their lives on Ruislip Lido, Alan Poole and Michael Hayward where a plaque was erected outside the hall. My name was Carter but I changed this to my surname now as my father and I had differencies. I look back with pleasurable experiences. Thank you DAVID (I do remember you) and history of such a fine school.
