I just found out Brian Jones went to my school.
Just kidding. I went to Cirencester Deer Park (famous pupils = zero). The kids that went to Dean Close were alternately the subjects of envy and ridicule...
most people there are worthy of ridicule.
(I'm Joe Mahon, 1992-1997)
I knew Cozy Powell was from Cirencester, but wasn't sure whether he'd gone to Deer Park. Supose there wasn't really anywhere else to go back then. The (s)wanky new website www.deerparkschool.net doesn't seem to have a Famous Pupils page, so I'm guessing he the only one.
Stuart Sutcliff and Sheila Grant from Brookside went to my school.
And the knobend from The Zutons as well
beat that? ;-)
i dont know if i can beat that
bit crap aint it?
former england rugby player and died a few months back went to mine. Also, the 100th soldier to die in iraq went to my sister school. RIP to both
you cruel bastard
the last sentence of mine is very odd. certainly not a good advertisement. who on earth could have put it there?!?
i found out what necrophilia really is...
Dc is a great school. Who are the few people not worthy of ridicule then?
I think the uy from killing joke went there. Strike two for it's rock history.
you mean you LIKE ryan hill?
should've guessed really...
and more but to say most people are worthy of ridicule is ,quite frankly, ridiculous. I mean tower, at least in our years, doesn't have a bad guy in it.
Do you mean by 'should've guessed'?
chill out henry i was being ironic. he has to be one of the most unpopular people that ever went to that school. and yeah i was probably being a little over the top saying 'most'. but people like the above stated made me hate that school sometimes...
and found out that Monty Panesar, the sikh guy who's playing for england at cricket who's been making loads of headlines recently as a result, went to my school, in the year above me.
well i never.
john sessions went there, but i'm not sure how accurate that is - he either only went there for a year, or he went to the other boy's school in town, i forget which..
It wasn't many more boys than girls in my day.
It's not one of the best schools, though. Or wasn't.
Went to my school.
He was in the worst house. Garnes. Only losers were in that house.
My College boasts these 'famous' people...
Arthur C. Clark, a British author and inventor.
Andy Robinson, the headcoach of the England national rugby union team.
Andrew Castle, former British number one tennis player and television presenter.
Keith Parsons, cricketer.
Know any of them? Neither do I.
site for my school but the only semi-famous person that I know that went to it is Chris Brunt, the Sheffield Wednesday left winger.
on Football Manager.
not only did he write 2001: A Space Odyssey (and loads of other ace books), he also basically invented the concept of a communications satellite...
The College in the back of beyond
I didn't know Andrew Castle went there, cooool.
Apparently he attended Millfield though... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Castle
It was sarcastic 'cooool' to be honest.
I like the bit about "around 1 initiatives"
Awful school. Really terrible.
Although some years after I had left.
i used to go past it on the bus home sometimes. everyone there looked like propa kempston thugs innit.
This is on the entry for my college
"It is interesting to note that the original design for the school's renovation was rejected, as it transpired that in an aerial shot the school would resemble a large phallus."
george bernard shaw went to my school! i knew there was someone else. :)
oh and some irish international rugby players.
It's named after an old bishop of durham and everything!
but GERMLIN went there. wowzer.
I've just discovered that The Rezillos went to my uni though. ACE.
AND he's a governor now AND he came into my Latin lesson and asked me what texts we were doing.
went to mine. lol.
went to my school
and max from hollyoaks
