Readers asked to send recollections of King's Lynn schoolmaster

Peter Jacobs, president of the Old Lennensians Association, is writing a short biography of Ken Gregory, who in 1952 was appointed as a schoolmaster at King Edward VII Grammar School and is asking readers to help with his research.

He spent the whole of his teaching career at King Edward before retiring in 1986. and during that time he taught A-level English to hundreds of pupils who subsequently went to university and also coached football, cricket and hockey.

He had won a Cambridge Football Blue and also played for English Universities and among his pupils were Terry Bush and Peter McCall who played professionally for Bristol City and Danny Kerry who coached the winning British Olympic hockey team.

Out of school he was involved with King’s Lynn Hockey Club, Pelicans Hockey Club, in some capacity with King’s Lynn Football Club and West Norfolk Nomads which he founded.

In 1984 he was given a Lynn News achievement award.
