I don't actually hate anyone ... and that is honest. However for my last 2 years of junior school and my 7 years at senior school I was a victim of bullying. Those scars linger ... no, I don't have marks on my body, just on my heart - my reactions to people, my isolation ... many things. Over the last couple of years I have managed to accept that those feeling will always be there - that's not to say I don't feel sad when I think of them, but have learnt that I have some amazing friends around the world who don't care what my faith is, that I wear glasses ... or that I'm close to my family ... Thank you.
However I am very proud of the school I attended.
The Coopers half was started in 1536 (and the year we moved to the West Country Tim and I attended a service of 450 years celebration in St Pauls Cathedral ... that was a special time. Coborn was the younger schooll having been founded in 1701. I started there in 1972, and when I started the school was in the process of moving to Upminster ... and was pleased to be involved in the opening celebrations. If you want to read more, then you can go to their website
The Coopers Company Crest ... A livery Company Crest that I am entitled to still wear.
The Coborn School Crest ... our year was the last year to wear this, as the school fully amalgamated in 1973, and only The Coopers Crest was worn after that.
