Welcome to Flashback Friday!


Flashback Fridays began in March 2020, as a way to bring Old Culfordians and East Anglian Schools together in a peculiar time of lockdown and isolation. 

On this page you can find all of our Flashback Fridays in one place. We wanted to make it accessible for everyone, bringing as many people together as possible.

Find the latest installment below and scroll down to the bottom of the page to have a browse through our archives.

The historical moments unveiled in our Flashback Friday's show how life has changed at Culford over the years, from being a family home to a functioning school.

Alongside bringing back fond memories for our alumni, Flashback Fridays has inspired people to begin making new ones too. Since the launch of these newsletters, we have heard of multiple alumni reunions and catch-up's on the content of the latest Flashback Friday instalment.

If you do not receive our weekly eNewsletters and would like to be a part of the community, please let us know: foundation@culford.co.uk.


''When the Queen said 'We'll meet again', I don't suppose she envisaged the old girls and boys all starting to communicate again with long lost friends! Each Friday, we have enjoyed laying aside Covid fears and lockdown loneliness and re-lived our school days. All great fun!''

Cynthia Green nee Flack (1942-1956)


Friday 30th July

Inspired by the Olympics, this week our focus is on sport and you may see some of our budding young sportsmen and women.  Perhaps you can share any other insights you have of sport at Culford with us? If you know of any former pupil who has achieved great success in the sporting arena in their time, get in touch!

The black and white photograph of the boys' swimming team was kindly provided by former pupil, Jon (1957-1966).

In the black and white photograph of the six ladies, is the 1953 EAS Sports Team.

Finally, the sepia photograph of the man riding his bike is former staff member George Barber.

Thank you so much for the submissions this week and roll on August!

Images have been kindly donated to us by various former pupils.
