Our 90th Anniversary
Coombe Boys’ School are delighted to be celebrating their 90th Anniversary on the 21st April 2021.
We will be marking our 90th year in many ways over the coming months amongst pupils, parents, staff and with our wider community.
We begin by reflecting on our long history & tradition of educating boys with a look back over our nine decades through our ‘Then & Now’ Archive.
Old Boys' Alumni
Alex signed for Fulham in the summer of 2010, after completing his GCSEs at Coombe. He is making excellent progress in the development squad this season and hopes to make his first team debut soon.
GB Table Tennis
Olympic hopeful, Darius plays for Great Britain on the ITTF World Pro Tour, as well as playing in the Spanish Superleague. He is the three times national under-21 champion.
Jazz left Coombe Boys’ in 2006; a YouTube sensation, his comedy sketches have been viewed by more than three million people and he can currently be seen in cinema in urban comedy, ‘Anuvahood’.
Currently studying an acting degree at Arts Educational Schools London, one of the top Drama schools in the UK, Josh has developed his acting talents on the stage and enjoys ‘treading the boards’; most recently, he has put in an impressive performance as Picklock in ‘The Revenger’s Tragedy’.
In June 2010, Middlesbrough F.C. signed Nicky for a fee of £1.4m. He was also picked to play for the England C national team, making four appearances before moving into the football league.
St Bonaventures USA & GB Basketball
A 6’0” guard, Ogo was called up to the GB senior squad in the summer of 2010, after a break-out year in NCAA college basketball with St Bonaventure University.
GB Head Coach, Chris Finch, says, "A true point guard and a natural leader. You can never get enough of either quality and we think Ogo has a real chance to help us this summer."
England Rugby U16 and Blackheath Rugby Club
Ovie was selected to play for England whilst at the school. He is currently playing for Blackheath in National League 1.
PROFESSOR PETER MEINACK
Artistic Director of Aquila Theatre
Having left the school in 1983, Professor Meineck is now Clinical Associate Professor of Classics at New York University, Artistic Director of the Aquila Theatre, the leading producer of touring classical drama in the US and Mythology Advisor in TV and film. We were delighted that he found the time to share his memories with us.
