Lost Alumni

There are many alumni who are ‘lost’ to the OWBA and we hope that through social media and the hosting of events these people may be reengaged with the school once more.  Lists are published below of those people we would love to trace from each decade. If you see anyone you know (or yourself!) or have any news about their endeavours since leaving West Buckland please do contact us. 1940s 1950s 1960s 1970s 1980s 1990s 2000s

    I am one of the Lost Alumni listed on the website. I was at the school from 1953 to 1957 and have had no contact with OWBA.

    I see you have me as one of the lost alumni. MP Warren, Fortescue 1974.

    Thankfully alive and well and living in West Berkshire with regular visits to North Devon.

    I’d be delighted to make contact with anyone who remembers me from my time at West Buckland or later at North Devon College and very much regret not being able to attend Saturdays reunion event which I learned about via old boy and estate agent Charles Tippet.

    I regularly use LinkedIn as a way of keeping in touch.

    Trying to trace an old friend John C Chapman and found ref to him in your lost alumni page. The John Chapman that I hope to find was resident in Nyasaland (Malawi) and came to England to school in the early 60’s
    Could this be the same person?
