Can't remember any famous old girls of my school, but Charles Darwin went to the boys' school across the river... admittedly a little before my time Wink

Forgot to add that Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend and John Entwistle of The Who went to my grammar school. Not aware of anyone else famous.

As well as the alumni I have mentioned, we also had one very VERY strange lad who actually made it to the august pages of the News of the World (and subsequently a period at Her Majesty's Pleasure) Wink
