 What's the wildest thing you ever did at Priory?

I was pretty quiet, but I remember when I was in sixth form a few friends and I went to Devon house during our free period. We each drank a "Devon Duppy" (yes it had alcohol in it), walked back to school and fell asleep in Mr. Foster's GP class. (Sorry Mr. Foster)

Mr. Foster


Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?

Andre Denny. He wasn't in my class but you could here him and see his antics from a mile away. "Denny, I hope you are now a stand-up comedian or an actor".



Where do you live and what do you do now?

I live in Maryland, USA and I am a Microbiologist.

None at the moment.


Tell us about your most unusual meeting with a Priory person

When I was in college (1985), I met up with a girl who was in my class at Priory in J3(1973-4). She recogniized me. I didn't recognize her, but I did remember her name. She was from Virginia and had only been at Priory for a short time. I guess I looked the same at 18 as I did at 7. Scary!!!


What do you think of the Priory site?

I love it. It brings back wonderful memories. I'd like to see more yearbooks scanned (70's - 80's)
