Letters about Peckham Manor School have prompted me to write that I attended it (1968-1973). I remember the “Technical Wing” being the thing that must have saved many of us from going off the strait and narrow. They employed real teachers, people from industry, who showed us how to use real engineering equipment to make real things without the obsession of health and safety. As for the origins and changes to the main school in Sumner Road, it was actually a Primary in the 1920/30s when my mother attended it.
