Pinner County Grammar School was a grammar school in Pinner, London from 1937 to 1982. In its latter years it became a college as Pinner Junior College and Pinner Sixth Form College. Famous pupils include Reg Dwight, otherwise known as Elton John, Simon Le Bon, Ron Goodwin and Gordon Beck all famous musicians, although the school was not especially music focussed. The actor Tony Jay was a pupil in the early 1940s, as were writers Bill Gunston and Wendy Holden (aka Taylor Holden), writer and broadcaster Gay Search and footballer David Jones. When the college closed in 1982 it was taken over by Heathfield School. An open day for former Pinner students is held every year on the first Saturday after the first bank holiday in May.
