I wish I could replace photos that were stolen in my photo albums! Mr Haynes was headmaster- he sadly passed away the day of our geography O level! Taken over by Mr Willis and then by Mr Howles. Ms Bailey and Mrs Bessley were other teachers I remember and Mrs Knowles taught shorthand and typing . Good school!!

I went to ward end hall also and have a few memories like when we had ice skating and caught the bus into town and the cross country runs around ward end park. I recall the forms been either the P's W's or O's. i was in the 1O 2O 3O 4O and 5O. i have no idea what the letters stood for but we called it the POW camp. In the 5th year we had the use of the common room for coffee instead of using the playground which was great in winter when the other years had to play out. I can recall most of the teachers from my time, these include
Mr Gordon - Metalwork (smacked me around the head )
Mrs Etheridge - Science
Mr Dawes - Science (caned me)
Mr Price - Geography and Games
Mr Watson (caveman) - History
Miss Quinn - Maths
Mr Goss - Deputy Head
Mrs Beasley- Head
Mrs Williams - Maths
Mr Fenwick - English (smacked with the blackboard ruler)
Sue - lab assistant ( not a teacher )
Mr Drury - History or Geology I think (caned me)
Mr Longbridge - Games (slippered me)
Mrs Worrell - Games



COMMON SENSE IS NOT THAT COMMON

I recognise most names but I think you were there a bit later than me. I eventually earned degrees and a doctorate so they did well for me!! Those were actually very good days! :)

Hi Lynne you must have been there around my time. Looking back they were good years, really. Someone mentioned Herman and as a prefect- I remember he was always in trouble! I still wish I had photos....Irene Wrentmore married and moved to Dawlish, Devon. William Mansell lived in Sheerness, Kent but haven't heard from him- married. Stephen Barnsley married with two children but passed away some 20 years ago- very sad. I live in Reading-
Moved here for work 1999. Do keep in touch.

Hi Moria, was Herman a black guy? my sister Rosemary Dodd went out with a Mansell brother who lived on bromford lane, they had a motorbike accident, how old are you Moira? I have lived in Sutton Coldfield for 30 years, I lived in Fulham from the age of 19 until 1987.
