I'm a current student here at Arden, leaving in 2 years and the past 7 years have been the greatest gift I've been given. I've grown up with the people I've known from 2011 up to 2019 and on inshallah. Although the leaving of Mr Lacey, the ride has still been amazing and I hope the rest of this year and the coming year before I leave will be the best!

How nice to read Rekha Solanki's kind words. I do remember her and her sister and, of course, the musicals we put on each year. They also included 'Oliver', 'Paradise Island' and a Mummers Play. As I reach the age of 93 my mobility is a little more restricted but the brain is still active!

It's been a long time since I moved to secondary school. I still remember the speeches that Miss Sherrill and Mr Lacy gave to me on how I should behave. I remember all the moments. I love the receptionist they were so kind I used to get free meals for lunch I will come to primary school one day with my GCSE results and I will show Mr Lacey and Miss shergill my improvements. They used to be so happy when I was good. I will come one day and meet all my teachers.

This is an amazing site. I was at this school when it opened in 1970. I remember my first day in Miss Hansons class. I also remember Miss Rose, Mr Alnut and Mr Hickman. My sister Virbala was in the year below me... and yes Mr Lamb I do remember you. I have very fond memories of my time at the school. I especially used to love the musical plays we used to perform every year... Joseph and his technicolor red coat and Ahmed the wood seller.

I was Headmaster of Arden from 1973-1980 and have fond memories of my time there. Now at the age of 90 it is interesting to read the comments of former pupils and to know how much they loved the old school. I must take issue with the very fanciful description of the bull's story left by Khalid. As it happened early in the afternoon all children were in their classrooms. No children were in the playground. So the poor animal was not charging children nor did it break down a gatepost' I closed the gate and contained the bull until help came and it was removed. Some pupils will remember Mr Parry whom I appointed as my Deputy when Mr Hickman retired. Sadly he died early last year. I was able to attend his funeral. My own state of health is quite reasonable but I do have some difficulty in walking more than 100 yards. I still have contact with Mrs MacDonald who was Reception Teacher in my time and also with Mrs Corrigan the dinner lady who eventually became cook. The school is now huge - I could never have envisaged the school in its present form. I campaigned for a long time even to get a nursery but was without success. It happened some time after I had left. I was invited to the opening of the first new building many years back but even that has been eclipsed. My very best wishes to everyone, former pupils, present pupils and to all staff past and present.

Such fond memories of Arden, I was lucky enough to have been taught here from 80-85 (80's rock, best years of my life). Great teachers then & now, fortunately my nieces (Mahnoor & Sehrish) came here and now my daughters (Sana & Zara). The passion & drive for success that the staff have is just so nice to see and the results show it. Outstanding by OFSTED :). WELL DONE to Mr Lacey and all teaching staff.

Its so lovely to see such fond memories being written. I just wanted to say Tony Lacy is the most amazing and driven head I have met. His vision and drive to do well, empowers and enthuses all those around him. I have attended some NQT training sessions provided by him and feel all schools should have a head like himself, who understands the needs and strengths of his staff. He is a positive role model and an inspiration.

What a great website! I was a teacher at Arden school from 83-97 and have wonderful memories of the children and staff. All the great things about Arden have continued - the friendliness and love of learning. Some of the highlights from my teaching were our visits to Sutton Park, Cotwall End and the airport. Miss Stubbing's unique assemblies in home languages and the staff pantomimes were also unforgettable. It is inspiring to see the new building and the obvious positive impact this is having on the school community but I agree with Pat Owen - it is the people who make Arden school so special. I wish you all the very best.

I just read the comment from Mohammed Khalid, and yes I remember the Bull, and I have a feeling that you were in my class too. Also, my friend Rukshana and I went to bake and decorate the large cake for the school the celebrate the Silver Jubilee. I have very fond memories of the school, because I started at Arden Primary School when I was 8, and left Kenya and the circumstances were very sad. So my teacher was wonderful and I felt that she looked out for me, because she knew that everything was very new to me and I found it very hard. I also made my first long skirt, and saw Santa at Arden. Thank you so much for my wonderful memories, and what a fantastic school. Love to you all.

I left Arden in 1989. Mr. Jones, Mrs. Owen, and Mrs. Winwood were among the best teachers i ever had. I remember Mr. Jones making us memorise the maths times-table and whoever memorised it upto 10, was rewarded a with a book. Arden always had this history of changing its view during the summer holidays. I am now a Lecturer at Mirpur University of Science and Technology, Mirpur, Pakistan. Thanks, you have really polished me to become a good caring teacher just like you.

I left Arden Primary in 1977. Those were the days, some amazing memories of some fantastic events and teachers, in particular Mr. A.F.W.Hickman, my form tutor! Does anyone remember the bull that got lose and escaped from the delivery track that was taking it to the slaughter house? It ran down Baker Street and found it's way into the playground of the school, amid a hoard of screaming kids enjoying their playtime. It charged at the kids and teachers who ran back into the building. Then the bull made a dash for the east side entrance of the back playground and smashed it's head on the concrete pillar that supported the gate, cracked the pillar in half... I was but two feet away from it when it happened! Eventually, someone with a stun-gun was called out to put it to rest, and then carried it back to the track. It became the talk of Arden for months on end! Keep up the good work folks!.

I remember being in year 1 and how the school was then. Now i'm in year 6. I'm glad i got to be at Arden when it finished.Thank you for all the great things Mr Lacey. The school grand opening was great. I enjoyed meeting Satnam Rana and it was amazing when she cut the ribbon and drummers preformed in front of the school and i was one of the dancers it was extraordinary.

Brings back all the old memories, only Mr Jones still going strong from the original teaching staff it seems, i remember him fondly with his red Simca car when I left in 1980 (and his love of cigars), regards to all.

I am a former pupil of Arden School, in the late 90's. It's a shame to see none of the old building are left, but hey its for the best, Mr Jones was my teacher in year 5 (1994-1995) All the best.

Excellent. A great deal of hard work has gone into this. Well done to everyone involved. Great idea to have all school newsletters and information on the web and links to other websites. It was lovely to see all the photos of the children and of different events, and to see examples of some excellent work by the children. Will log on frequently. Well done.

Hi Arden. As a former pupil of the school, it has been a sheer delight to having visited your website and refresh fond memories. I see my former teacher Mr Jones still there and looking young as ever, sure was a great inspiration with the early adoption of computer technology. The school seems to have gone through some major changes, it all seems unrecognisable from my days from temporary classroom cabins. Best wishes.
