Pinner County Grammar School
Although the school was not especially music focussed, former pupils include Reg Dwight (otherwise known as Elton John), Simon Le Bon, Ron Goodwin and Gordon Beck, all famous musicians. The actor Tony Jay was a pupil in the early 1940s, as were the writers Bill Gunston and Wendy Holden (aka Taylor Holden), the writer and broadcaster Gay Search and the 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.
