Purgent Patel (1969-1972)

I was born in Dar-es-salaam and went to Park Road Primary before joining Eastleigh Secondary School in 1969.

At ESS, my favourite subjects were Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. I was a member of the school Photography Society. I was also a Scout and took part in the President’s Award Scheme. I played cricket for the school and hockey for Nile House. I remember Mr M R Patel, in-charge of cricket team, very well. I ended up with a First Grade at ‘O’ levels.

My best friends at school were Mahendra Shah, Vijay Patel, Ajay Jobanputra, Kiran Patel, and Mayur Sumaria. I had others whose names I have forgotten now! Together, we had plenty of fun going Camping, Hiking and Cycling. The teachers who inspired me the most were Mr Mendonca, Mr Panesar, Mr Khanna, Mr Hashmi, and Mr Amin who were all exceptional! In hindsight the four years at this school were probably the best time of my life.

I completed my A levels at Jamhuri High School in 1974 and came to London to do my degree in Pharmacy at Chelsea School of Pharmacy, a part of London University. I met my wife Anjali at College and we got married in 1981. She is also a pharmacist. We bought our first pharmacy in 1979 and we still run it! I am partly retired now and play a lot of golf. We live in Purley, Surrey and have two grown up sons Anish and Rishi, both well-educated and settled.
