My grandfather, William Hilton, attended the school in the late 1950's or early 1960's, not sure which as it was a difficult time for him so he does not say much. I believe he escaped at least twice, being caught in London the once!

I'm interested now I've found this website to know more. It's a shame they're knocking the site down as I'd have liked to go.

I am now 79 years old, I attended Horsley Green School way back in 1954.  I was there for three consecutive terms before leaving school to start work. My memories are a little vague but I do remember looking after the pigs and hens. I recall going to the sick bay for the malt and cod liver oil. I played for the school football team against local schools. I still have a scar on my head when a boys boot came off as we both climbed a tree. In the middle of the dorms where the "box lockers", although the surface was uneven, we still practised table tennis on the before going to the Common Romm for league matches. I remember the headmaster was Mr Livesey, he had a very pretty daughter who most of us fancied but never got the chance to speak to her. The tuck shop on the road was always popular. Very happy days.

I think I might be at the right school.  My dad Frederick W. Page attended the camp in 1941 as an evacuee from Plumstead in greater London.  He would have been 11 at the time.  He is 88 at this time.  He was telling me this was a camp (he descibed it as something like a scout camp they took over) and was a school for disabled children.  He wore leg braces back then, not polo but some sort of infection from earlier in his childhood.  He recovered and was fit for national army service by 1948.  He moved to Canada and later the United Staes by the mid fiftys.  We have no pictures of him as a young man, anything the family had was lost when a V1 feel on their house in 1944.  Are there any photos from 1941?  He says he left there in late 1941 after about a year at the school.
