Comedy actor Leslie Phillips went to school here.

Location: New Road, Chingford, E4 8ET

Description: Comedy film lounge lizard Leslie Phillips, who starred in two Harry Potter films, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, three Carry On films and dozens more, went to this school in Chingford.

Speaking to the children at it's reopening in 2007, he said: I am very proud of those kids who come to Larkswood today because it was about 70 years ago I was here.

He told the children about a time he was almost hit with the cane by the then headmaster for allegedly stealing plants.

Mr Phillips said: Somebody else had taken them and I had found them dumped in the middle of New Road and I was trying to return them.

The headmaster caught me and asked me: Have you been stealing them?' I was very surprised.

He went to his office and he got his cane. He did not believe me and asked me to bend over. I was in quite a fright and I ran out of the room and he ran after me with his cane.

He did catch me but said that because I had made such an effort to escape, he believed me and did not cane me.
