Can’t think of many people who I knew of. Ralf Little, was several years ahead of me. Had a few famous people over time including Sir Ian McKellen and some others who I’ve never heard of but have impressive job titles.

At my first secondary school, former pupils include Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, Mel Smith, Keith Vaz and Heston Poncenthal. Poncenthal might be the only one of these, that was at the school at the same time as me. Lucky for him, he wooduv been in the upper sixth, ‘cos if he’d been in my year, I probbly wooduv bullied him for being a ponce. I was a bit of a vicious little **** when I was a yute.
At my second; no-one famous, ‘cos it was a shit school.Posted 8 years agoRudeBoyMember
Well, I was small, so bigger kids thought they could bully me. Trouble was, a lot of them were ponces, yet I’d grown up in the East End, and could look after meself a bit. I’d always wait until I got them alone, then proper scare ’em. They’d be proper shitters, when no-one else was around to back them up. Grassing bastards though. I was in trouble quite a lot. I din’t last long in that school.
I weren’t really a bully. I’d just get back at kids who gave it the big-un. Vengeful little ****, me.Posted 8 years agobrantSubscriber
I was at 6th form with BBC North West Tonight sports reporter Howard Booth. Yes, Howard Booth.
And the editor of Motorcycle News – Fat Adam wasn’t it?
Christopher Leslie, the youngest ever MP I think, was in my class at my infant school. And of course I was delighted to spend 3yrs of relative debauchery drinking with Harry The Spider at Big School.Posted 8 years agoTheLittlestHoboMember

Went to school with Stuart Barnes. Not the Bath/England No10 of the late 80s but the lad who played 1st team cricket for Gloucs. You’ve probably never heard of him…
John Hall (played on the flank for Bath/England by coincidence) was a few years ahead of me, as was Curt Smith (half of Tears For Fears – popular beat combo from the early 80s). Andrew Lincoln (actor best known for playing ‘Egg’ in This Life. Or ‘Teachers’) was a few years behind me, as was Jason Gardner (sprinter).
Oh, and I went to Uni with Thom Yorke. But he didn’t know it :O)Posted 8 years ago
