Alan Hickling

Alan Hickling attended the School for just one term in Autumn 1957 after his primary eduction in Summerbee, and is looking to get back in touch with his contemporaries.

Some members of the Association may remember his father, Harold Hickling, who taught at the School on either side of WWII.

Alan writes:

My greatest association with Bournemouth School is via my father, Harold Hickling, who taught there from 1928 until January 1958 (apart from the War when he served in France, Africa and India ending Lt Colonel in SEAC). He commanded the OTC before the War and had a long involvement with The Old Bournemouthians Cricket Club.

  1. I too was at BSB in 1957 I think I would have been in 2E that year. Like Alan Hickling I passed 11+ at Summerbee Junior. If any of that information gels with you Alan then feel free to get in touch. I live in Australia now if that’s of any help. Peter Robinson

  2. Dear Alan, I was at Bournemouth School (never ‘BSB’ then) from 1964 1954 to 1960. I remember your father very well though I was never taught by him. He always possessed a very dignified military bearing and I remember well his array of medals at Remembrance Day ceremonies. So many of the schoolmasters of that era had quite distinguished military careers. They never talked of them to us boys. I’m sure you are very proud of him.
