Dr. Brian Taylor   (1952-55)

I was at WCGS from 1952-1955; passing the 11-plus at 10 from St Andrew's C of E school.  In 1955, I left to go to Mill Hill School under the old "Middlesex Scheme".  Nevertheless, I have always felt that the grounding I got at WCGS stood me in great stead.  I also remember Doc Roberts with fondness as a good and fair Headmaster.

From Mill Hill, after three years working at the Wellcome Laboratories of Tropical Medicine, I took the degree of Bachelor of Technology in Applied Biology at the then Brunel College.  It became a University the week we did our finals.  I then did PhD research at Brunel - being the first internal postgraduate to get a PhD in Biology.

Now semi-retired, I am a Fellow of the Institute of Biology and a Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society.

My sister, Glenys Tyler, nee Taylor, also went to WCGS, from 1959-64, I think.
