Re: Moorhead High School

Mr. Caudwell is still there and I didn't believe anyone could look so much like a Chuckle brother until I saw him!

I was in Lacey which was a manky green top, Hargreaves was blue wasn't it, peel was yellow and Mercer was red. It was ace at swimming gala and down at Wilson's for sports day, think they were the only time you got any real banter between the houses!

Re: Moorhead High School

How on earth do you remember Gary Robinson Pilky? That was in 1980 in the summer. I was in the first year then (left in 1984) It was probably the most horrible day of my schooling. I actually saw it happen as I was in transit from the Cromwell building to the Queens building.
I remember Mr Bolton (RIP) Mrs Skull (RIP) Mr Green, Mr Simpkins, Mr Robinson, Mrs Heap, Mr and Mrs Edwards (French and Chemistry) Mr Cartiledge (Chemmy) Mr Harris and Mr McGrath (Physics) Mr Riley (Biology and great drummer) Mr Howarth (Biology) Mr and Mrs Walmsley (English) Mr Robbins and Mrs Riley (Maths) Miss Tomlinson and Mrs Roberts (PE) Mrs Jones (History and temporary headmistress, the school ran like clockwork when she was in charge) Mrs Stewart (Geography) Mr White (music) Mr Webb and Mr McCaffrey (RE) Miss Parkinson (French) Mrs Sandham (German) Mrs Fowler (Domestic Science) Mr Williamson and Mr Jordan (Art) Mr Morgan (Mallen, English) Mr Caudwell (Maths, and general token fanciable male teacher) He must have been young when he started, as I left 21 years ago this year and like most kids, I thought all adults were old.

Re: Moorhead High School

Out of that lot there's only Miss Tomlinson (PE) who rings a bell. Presuming she was the same Miss Tomlinson.

Mrs. Taylor also did PE. We had Mrs Riley (maths but couldn't do geometry) Mr Mortimer and Mr Duckworth (sciences) Miss Melody (geography) Mrs Moon (French) Mr Manley (history) and Miss Redmayne (RE). Golly gosh I can't remember any more! Maybe they'll come back to me.

Re: Moorhead High School

She wasn't as scary as Miss Tomlinson. The latter could put the fear of God into a humble first year on the hockey pitch.
