Re: Rhyddings High School??

Who was your favorite teacher and why?????
I had 2 really, Bob cunliffe, and Mr newton,

Bob because he gave us permission to skip classes we didnt like and go and play football in the new sports hall.

Les Newton because he was a decent teacher who took no rubbish from anyone.
even to the extent of going to the gates and sorting out some mad dads that came every now and then,

Happy memories. I was there from 77-82. Mrs banks once caned me and a mate for some trivial rubbish, she also caught me out selling forged parents notes. Always thought she was too much of a stiff. Also does anyone remember Mr abel. Think I saw Mrs merrigold a couple of months ago in ossy.

Mrs. Merigold is still around. I didn't go to Rhyddings but I went to her for piano lessons in my teens.

westendlass, you were probably in the same year as my sister Karen Entwistle. I was a few years younger ( 80-85)

Entwisi. The name rings a bell, just trying to picture her face! One of my old school mates is coming round soon and he remembers everyone so I'll pick his brains.

No, I don't think they were in my year. There was only one lad with the same surname that I can recall.

Re: Rhyddings High School??

Hi. Not sure if this thread is still alive, but I've enjoyed reading it.

I was at Rhyddings from 79-83, and recognise lots of teachers' names. Mr Newton was a star wasn't he!

I didn't notice anyone from the same year in the thread but if there is, there is a reunion happening in June. There's a Facebook page for it called Rhyddings 83.

Any of you 82ers remember Lorraine Hargreaves and/or know how she's doing these days?

As was the norm we ran everywhere but always got dragged back as you turned to run up the stairs and you blazer pocket got caught by the metal handrail that stuck too far out almost always ripping the blazer!!! Mum was happy!

Re: Rhyddings High School??

As i recall, when we were caught running down the corridor a hand would fly out from some doorway and grip you by the collar. Then you would be made to walk all the way back to where you came from and start again under the steely eye of some tyrant (and there were many). I was thrashed many a time by one or other inadequate excuse for a teacher. The best teacher were the most inspirational ones, they didn't have to batter you as they had your concentration in the first place. Still, I have happy memories with my mates and still see some of them.
