Who would you like to track down?

Colin Cairney


What was the wildest thing you ever did at Priory?

Creating our own snow storm for the Christmas holidays by tearing lots of paper into very small pieces, then standing on desks and throwing it into the air!  We were made to clear it all up but all agreed it was worth it!


What memories/views do you have of Priory?

The international flavour of the school made it a truly unique and inspiring educational experience, that was not just purely academic. The Priory House and the grounds were a delight - all this and miss Lou's patties too!

Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?

Colin Cairney - bordering on the insane


Where do you live and what do you do nowadays?

In a small market town called Wantage (about 10 miles from Oxford) England.


I administer ICT facilites in a large comprehensive secondary school, and am administrator for a science journal published twice monthly.


Tell us about any significant others

Dave Cavanagh, who I married in 1975 and my three lovely children, Martin (28), Michael (25) and Laura(22)

What do you think of the Priory Website?

I think the web site is wonderful, very comprehensive, easy to use, inclusive and friendly. Great job!
