Icenian Interview – Geoffrey

Geoffrey GeeGeoffrey was at Langley Junior School, Thorpe Road, Norwich as a boarder in Mancroft, from around 1951-1955. GG or Horsey, as he was known, was involved in football and cricket at Langley and here we find out where life took him after school.

Where did you go to university?
I went to the Law Society’s College of Law in London and did five years articles. I then became a solicitor in 1965.

‘My years at Langley taught me independence and self-confidence. Those were such a foundation for my whole life and career.’

How did your career begin?
After Law School I worked for a firm in London and eventually jointed two friends in setting up a three office practice.

Where are you now in your career and what have been the highlights?
That’s a long, long story including living on three continents; England, Sydney Australia and now Los Angeles. I retired and am 75.

On reflection, did your time at langley school help inform your career choices and your attitude to your career progression?
I was at Langley Junior when I was very young, I think I was 7 and went back to London when I was 11. My years at Langley taught me independence and self-confidence. Those were such a foundation for my whole life and career.

Final thoughts
Too many years have flown by. I did have a Langley School friend, Robert Pearson from Broome, Bungay in Norfolk with whom I’d love to be back in touch.
