Former pupils of a large grammar school are getting set to gather together and remember the best days of their lives.

Seventy-five-years after Buckhurst Hill County High opened, the remarkably well-kept records of the school, detailing the triumphs of pupils and the tests of education in wartime, are to form a grand exhibition.

A giant photographic display, cine film and memorabilia will be on show for former pupils, their relatives and the general public to marvel at, in September.

The exhibition will also feature a timeline of the school’s entire 50 year history.

The school which boasted a large catchment area, closed in 1989 and is now the site of the the Guru Gobind Singh Khalsa College.

On September 13, a large number of former pupils are expected to attend the free public exhibition, honouring the Roding Lane school.

The exhibition will be at the Theydon Bois Village Hall starting at 2pm.
