I attended Birley Junior school the first day it opened early Sept 1952. At the time there was no infants school. Juniors and infants were attending the same as the infant dept was not built The headmaster was named Mr Gillis, I remember some of the teachers but not many. I then moved to what was Birley Secondary Modern School. The headmaster was a Mr Davies, other teachers were Mr Tyson (didn't like him) Miss Smith (nor her) Miss Walsh, Mrs Hollingsworth, Mr Guest, Miss Stringer, Mr Burke these are just a few I can recall at this moment in time.

I did enjoy my time at school, disapline was strictly adhered to, attendance by todays standards was very good. Parents were not going into school to complain about their child getting a "scutch" round the ear, we dare not go home and tell our parents the teacher had clipped us as we would get another even harder.

The only thing I regret about school is that in my time you were not given the opportunity to learn a foreign language. I think that to-days kids should have this as part of the curriculem with many families taking holidays abroad and then moving to other parts of the world.

By the way I left Birley early 60's!!1 Yes I am a Grandmother!!!

I left in 1960,I remember those teachers along with Mr Keeton,Mrs Rippeth(miss machin),Mr Danks,I still owe Mr Burke 10 shillings for a football shirt I bought off him.I didnt like Tyson or Granny Smith,I went to Ridgway school while we were waiting for Birley junior school to open.
