Abbeydale Grange at Millhouses, left in 1977. Howard Wilkinson (Former Owls Manager) was a PE teacher there at the time and Seb Coe the Athlete / Tory was probably it's most famous former pupil, Brian Anderson, former British champion Boxer was in my year.

I went to Frodsham High school in my Home town of Frodsham near Chester. The only claim to fame is that Gary Barlow from Take That went there and his mum works there as a lab assistant, she's called "Mrs Barlow" or Marge, by her friends, I think.

Its now called Frodsham College because it managed to become a special school, meaning they focus on technology, or there supposed to. I now suspect that they actually just use the extra 500,000 a year paying microsoft for the windows, and then having someone maintain it.... Oh and they got the whole school wired up ready for ethernet connections.... Im babbling now..

I attended Prince Edward at the manor top,we had a little tough guy for a head teacher called Mr. Sefton, who threatened to smack us under the chin if anyone stepped out of line. We had a saying for him ( out of his hearing of course ) old mr. sefton is a good man, he goes to church on sunday, and prays to god to give him strength to cane the boys on monday.We were all afraid of him. don't know what he would have done today now that caning and punishment of children has been abolished. I left that school in 1941. :oops: :shock:

I attended the old Greystones Sec Mod on Greystones Rd until 1966 (they think it is all over..it is now). Though lost in the mists of time and old age, I remember it as a very happy school. Anyone recall Mr Hyde who deserved a medal for trying to get us interested in Maths...or Miss Hornsby the French teacher and my first serious crush...ah happy days indeed.

I went to Westfield School, but the one that's there now is a different one to the one that was there in 1959.

They knocked the old one down in the eighties and built a new school nearer Mosborough viallage.

Now they look like buldozing that one as well. Some of the buildings were ment to be temporary ones, built to last five years, twenty years ago!

Small world, I went to Gleadless Valley as well, left in 1992... you may ask how come I went all the way up Norton to School when I live at Stannington, but in those days I lived at Walkley back in the mid-late 1980s, and went to GVSS because it was the only School with a special needs facility which my parents deemed suitable for me after visiting King Edward's, Tapton, Oakes Park and Bents Green.

If you ever want to find old School chums, sign up on
Friends Reunited (http://www.friends-reunited.co.uk) I think that's the right link, I'll check and edit it if it's wrong.

I went to Gleadless Valley which is sadly no longer there although can't say they were happy times. I can remember a few teachers but not there names. Can remember the head teacher, we used to call him Batman because he wore one of those black gowns that used to flow behind one he walked along the corridors. The other teacher I remember is Mr Howe who was the Georgraphy teacher and coincidentally I found out last year that the bloke who owns the static caravan in front of ours his is younger brother. I also remember the little shop on the back lane where we used sometimes buy stuff for the cooker lessons if we forgot anything.

i went to St. Marys RC primary & infant school in High Green from 1989 to 1995. fantastic school i thought (because we didnt actually do any work) apart from paint pictures for the walls and do E.R.I.C (every one reads in class), oh, and practice readings for church on a tuesday morning. god, glazzy (rmb her Mrs Glaze) a jekal & hyde headteacher we had to put up with!

and then i went to All Saints RC High School on granville road from 1995 to 2000, was in form 7-11R, couldnt wait to leave but was very sad on the day espc because we went allowed to sign each others shirts, although we did when the whole year (almost) meet up at the peace gardens to run through the fountains (good times). i do regret not keeping in touch with my old school friends esp Hellen Aspinall.

Went to Prince Edwards, then Hurlfield. It merged with Ashleigh in my 3rd year and changed its name to Myrtle Springs. I think I left in 1990.

Gleadless Valley was crap... sorry but that was my opinion of it... the only thing that kept me sane the whole 5 years of being there was this lass called Helen Swann who was in my class for 4 out of the 5 years.

Haven't seen her for years now, and she isn't on the Friends Re-united site sadly.

Closest thing I've probably ever had to a real girlfriend to date, most of the other girls in the school were psychotic or at best a bit thick really.

There was only one thing wrong with Gleadless Valley back in my days there, some of the kids there were 'tards.

And some of the teachers were even more daft.... especially old Dragon lady Freeman, for reasons I don't want to go into as even now it disturbs me... :(

Whatever you decide, you need to have a back up.... I wanted to get into Silverdale but I understood that they were very selective so I had a back up which was Sheffield College.

On the results day, I got the grades for Silverdale and so I went there!!!

Are you thinking of A levels or a vocational course such as childcare or hairdressing?

That's ridiculous advice - languages at A level aren't that hard, as long as you pay attention and realise it takes quite a bit of work on your part outside of college. I know people who got C's at GCSE and still managed to pass the A-level fine.

That certainly is unfounded advice!!

Languages are all different as are people... everyone has a different grasp on languges..

I got a B in GCSE Spanish and Did A Level and got an A..

Went to St Anselm's College in Wirral... Same as Austin Healey, Ben Johnson and Matt Dawson!!

Left in 1999

I went to good old Firth Park School, then went to Castle college for a year.

Left school in 2001 though, when it had been pointlessly been renamed to Firth Park Community College.

Languages are all different as are people... everyone has a different grasp on languges..

Which is why I told Sataninheels to be wary of doing one because of the way we were taught them at our school...

You know the tables in French? EG: RE verbs:

Prendre
Prends
and so on.....

Well, I had never seen them in my entire life, yet they were reciting them at Silverdale, as they had been shown them in year 9 and had known them ever since....

At my school, if we wanted to know how to say somethng, we asked the teacher. No magic formula... and thats what I mean when advising Sataninheels not to take a language!
