Wood Close School, now known as William Davis Primary School is a primary school in Cheshire Street, Bethnal Green, East London. It is a short distance from Brick Lane and 178 Vallance Road, the Krays former home. Outside the school is The Carpenters Arms, a pub once owned by the twins.
After attending here, the twins went to Daniel Street School.
In 1938, the twins first attended Wood Close School in nearby Cheshire Street. A large 1900 style building, it was built by the London County Council Board Schools. The twins remember singing hymns and having rest periods on small camp beds. After getting in a scrap one break time with a boy called George Tappin, Reggie was told by his brother Charlie to start boxing.
