Lifelong friends at Wolverhampton Grammar School

Lifelong friendships

It was during the December 2015 WGS Christmas concert that former student Nigel Cox (OW 1974) approached the Head with a special request.

This request centred around the 50th anniversary of a first day in School and the special bond and genuine affection that exists between this Under 15 football team which has weathered being scattered across both the UK and the globe.

We were therefore delighted to welcome back through the doors on Friday 8th September 2017 (50 years and 2 days to the day!) Paul Hughes and Andy Madden (OWs 1975), Steve Walton, Steve Weston, Neil Kendrick, Nigel Cox, Bryan Dix, Brian Griffiths and Keith Crook (OWs 1974).  They were also joined by current and former staff Peter Hawthorne, Graham Lewis, Dave Pointon, Tim Browning and John Johnson.

Andy Madden presented to the Upper Sixth on behalf of the group, they took a tour of School (including an impromptu game of Fives), poured over former copies of the Wulfrunian in the Archive and spent a good few hours sharing many wonderful memories with current staff and pupils.

“Fabulous day at a fabulous school.  I noticed the attentiveness in the eyes and behaviour of the students. It was a joy.” Andy Madden (OW 1975)
