contact a former member of staff or student of Shoreditch, please
e-mail the following information to email@example.com
I will include the request in the next revision of

the approximate years he/she was at Shoreditch
his/her last known address
your mailing address (optional)
your e-mail address
your phone number (optional)

I would be interested in hearing from anyone who was at Coopers Hill Training College in 1947 and who remembers the production of Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan, performed on the steps of the college.
My inquiry is on behalf of Sybil Ewbank (niece of Dame Sybil Thorndike) who played Joan in that production. She would be delighted to hear from anyone who was there, or perhaps took part in the play. I would also be interested in their memories, as I am writing her biography.
Could you please note that I have had to change my E Mail address, I can now be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Very pleased to say that I have had a very good response from Ray Peak in New Zealand, following seeing his entry in your Web Site. This was in connection with Shoreditch Tech Ins. at Hamond Sqare, Hoxton in and after 1946, and in particular about T G Page who was said to be Headmaster there. This followed his time as head of the Shoreditch Tech Senior School. The other contact that was given in Page 3, that of Francis J Redditch, E Mail email@example.com has not replied. I have noted another reference to F J Redditch stating that his E Mail Address could not be found.

Have had an E mail from someone related to George Page, My Senior School Head whilst I was evacuated to High Wycombe during the early part of the war. I believe that George Page became Head of Hamond Square Technical School London N1, in about 1946. I wonder whether any of your subscribers can throw any light on what happened to Shoreditch Technical Institute at the end of the war and any info on George Page at that time.

My name is Doreen (Vail) White. I attended Shoreditch Tech on the Curtain Road from 1952-1953. I resided on Ash Grove in Hackney during that time and in 1954 moved with my parents to Witham, Essex. I have been married for 47 years and have lived in the United States since 1960. I presently split my time between the US and Essex. I would really enjoy hearing from anyone who was at the school during that time.
I can be reached via email at the following address regardless of me being in the US or UK: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cheers - Doreen White
My father went to Shoreditch
Technical College between 1938-1941 to study woodwork,
and then had to take maths prior to entering the RAF in 1941.
He is now 80 years old, and we are curious to know if there are any old students still of this era that you are in contact with.
My father's name is Frank William Cull.
He returned to the college in 1947 to teach woodwork and craft for 2 and a half years. There may be some old lecturers that may also remember this period.

Carl Peter WEBSTER attended Shoreditch College for the garment trade c.1956-8, and would like to make contact with any other surviving students from that period.
He now lives in New Zealand and can be contacted via email c/o firstname.lastname@example.org
I have been unable to find Coopers Hill Emergency Training College 1950 in Friends Reunited so tried Google and was surprised it was once Shoreditch College.
Have you ever had any other contacts from the above year ? I know I was in the "younger set" and I am 76 now and so realise it is unlikely I will be able to contact many I know from that year.
I have a photo of the complete group, most people were from the Services..after demob.

below is John's reply:
It was good to get your email and my apologies for not replying sooner - my sister, Jill, forwarded it to me as I have a little more information here about Coopers Hill than she does.
We don't seem to have had
any contacts so far from people who were at the Coopers Hill Emergency
Training College, so it was particularly nice for us to receive
your email. Are there specific people that you were hoping to
contact? If so we could perhaps include their names and your name
on the appropriate page on the website - after all if you are
searching the Web there may well be someone else from your year
who is doing the same. We were also thinking that it might be
good to include a special web page for the Emergency College.
If you would like and are able to send us a copy of your group
photo (and the names if you have them), we could perhaps put that
on the website as well. At the moment most of the information
that I have is in boxes which I have not had time to go through
yet, but I do have by me a copy of one of the Coopers Hill Magazines
complete with crest and motto: 'Animo non astutia', and a picture
of the then principal, John Daniel - this was for Spring 1948
though, so probably before your time there.
Thanks again for writing

I attended 'ditch 1948. My name is Mildred Leigh nee FARBY. My son found your site for me. What a wonderful idea. Hope to link up with some of the 'girls" I went to school with sooo long ago.
