In response to your posting Michelle (Hi there by the way). Haven't any photos, but I did go to the high school in 1961 to 1963 which I know was before your time. I took a pre nursing course there for 2 years. We had a headmistress, but am blowed as to what her name was. Any memories we can share?

Hi my aunt Jean Tipping went to warren farm Kingstanding and as she is the youngest her other sister may well have too, my grandparents moved to Hawthorne road kingstanding when my mom was 12, and my aunty Jean still lives in nan house. I have two photos of Warren Farm Road Kingstanding taken in 1966 and 1968, I will find them out and post them.
Have you tryed contacting Carl Chinns Brummagem Magazine, I know there have been storys and photos to do with kingstanding in past issues I will look in the back issues and post any thing I find.
I was just on Facebook, there is a 'Kingstanding 1950's onwards' page, there are some really great pictures there.
This may already have been mentioned, but I thought I would mention it just in case.

We lived in Aylesbury Crescent and my Sister Susan Richardson Went to Warren Farm Girls and My Brother Peter Richardson Went to the boys school during the 60s. I was at Warren Farm Primary from 1962. I did not fancy going to Warren Farm Senior so went to Perry Beeches in Great Barr. Mrs. George the headmistress at the Juniors was a lovely person. Kingstanding was a good place to be in the 60s and early 70s.
