Memories of The City School - Stradbroke Road

Recommended Posts

Wow ! Reading these post has the memories flooding back....I went to City from 1980 - 1985 - the last 2 years in the 6th form.

 

 

RIP - Bob Parsonage - He was my old form tutor......A truly nice bloke....Taught German when he wasn't keeping an eye on us trying to nick his fags !

 

RIP Anne Rigby.....I kept in touch with her long after she left City and moved to Scotland...a truly sad loss.......a great person and friend

I can honestly say those were great days with some VERY understanding teachers......I sometimes wonder how they coped...(probably with industrial quantities of alcohol, ciggies and temazepan)

 

I can still remember loads of their names...

 

Mr Swift (Swifty)

Mr & Mrs Brown

Mr Gelder & Mr Butler

Neal Lovell

Miss Shimmin

Miss Townsend

St John & Tingle

Kita & Paulson

Sando

Debes

Bob Parsonage (RIP)

Ann Rigby (RIP)

 

I also took a walk down the Shirebrook Valley today past where I used to walk to school and where I spent an awful lot of my youth......Can't believe how much it has all changed....then again....it is about 25 years since I last went there !!!

Mr Tingle was a nice fella, at break times if he was skint he would go round the smokers corner and "confiscate " someone`s fags. He took us for football one day and ended up on crutches for months, don`t mess with the ex Woodthorpe boys:D

 

i remember the tackle that caused that injury ,he had picked on one of our mates and when he got the ball got tackled from both sides i think it was alan martin we got done but it was worth it ,actually he was a top bloke and became good mates . Does anyone remember Mr Burgin he was a sports teacher he came with us from woodthorpe another good bloke no airs and graces.
