Alan Whitehead is probably the School's most famous 'old boy' having left at 16 and within a few short years achieved fame and fortune as the colourful drummer in the 1960's group The Marmalade.
Alan famously drove his white Rolls Royce up the school drive to the amazement of Mr Kingsland who never thought he would ever witness such a day!
Alan had very kindly agreed to allow us to use images and copy from his websites to tell his story but following his kind invitation to chat we are now able to substitute this with a 25 minute telephone conversation which you can hear using the player below.
Listen to Alan talking about his relationship with Stevie Wonder, Keith Moon, Jimmy Hendrix and Richard Branson.
Alan is very happy for any of his old school friends to contact him using either his email: firstname.lastname@example.org or his mobile number: 07957 358997
