Hi, I went to churchend primary school with my sister Chloe (24) and My brother James (22) about 10 years ago. My sister is now married and lives back in reading with her husband, james is engaged- due to get married in september. And as for me- I am now training to become a primary school teacher. I would like to thank, Miss Dixon, Miss Jenkins for always supporting me in year 3/4 (I know they have left) I would like to thank Mrs Hill for her constant encouragement. And a massive thankyou to Mr Pearse who always used to read at the end of maths at the end of the day. You read 'Private Peaceful' to the class, and only yesterday, I was reading it to my class of year 5's aswell. Me and my brother remeber so clearly what an amazing teacher you were and I am so happy you are still working in the school. It's also nice to see Mrs Covington is still the receptionist- such a wonderful lady. Her daughter louise was in the same year as me and her sister laura was good friends with my brother James. Wish you all the best for the years to come and I recommed that every child goes to Churchend. They will support and encourage you to the end!!!

Having left Churchend in 1979 I still have very fond memories of my time. The size of the playing fields never ceased to amaze me.....
Anyone who left in 1979 is welcome to get in touch.
