I was at Coleridge Road from 1946-1950,my first teacher was Fred Knowles.The woodwork teacher was Mr Middlemas,art teacher Mr Wild,music teacher Mr Naylor,geography teacher Mr Webb,history teacher Mr Fitzpatrick,he was also my last teacher there,we had a classroom in the prefab annex outside.Mr Fitzpatrick introduced rugby to the school.I remember being given the rugby ball and told to run and then he tackled me,it was like having a house fall on you.He was well built and square set and I believe was demobbed out of the army in 1945/46 and as fit as a butcher's dog.I met him again years later when he was headmaster at the Catholic School on Granville Road.Coleridge School was a better school for the likes of him teaching there.

I had two cousins that went there, Mike and Chris Bowler from March Street, I think Chris was in the same class once as former Blades captain Len Badger.

I lived in Fitzmaurice Road until the late fifties and remember a Raymond Hall who lived there at the same time was Dougie his younger brother.

Thank you Robbiet, but to be head prefect didn't you have to be in the final year? also Chis' best buddy was Russel (Cuffey) Bates (Greenland Road), and the next door (March St,) neighbor was Barry Glaves.
