I might be a bit late in joining this thread but hey ho. I'm actually here on behalf of my dad (David Sykes) who left Ecclesfield sometime around 1979/1980, just wondering if anyone here knew him?

I was there from 72 to78. Went to Ecclesfield Infants and  then Ecclesfield Juniors prior to going there. I can remember the girls striking due to Miss Heaton's comments and also the horse falling off the quarry.  Some of the teachers I can remember were Miss Howard, John Napier (Russian), Mr Glen, Mr King, Mr Smith (French), Mrs Sanders (French), Mr Moss (PE), Mr Hewitt (music), Don Templeman, Andy Brazell, Miss Sutton (Science), Miss Clammer, Mrs Lord (RE), Mr Mellors (Chemistry), Miss Amery (Games), Mr Buck (Maths), Mike Corden (Games), Mr Middleton (Woodwork.) Forget the name of our history teacher but he used to stop off and give us a lift to school if he saw us walking up 'Chap Hill' at the last minute. Also remember the cross-country run along Chap Hill, Whitley Lane etc. There was once a dead cat which had been knocked down and laid at the side of the road and Mr Glen tripped over it as he overtook us :-)

 

Left in 1978 and went to work at Doncasters on Penistone Rd. Stayed there until 2013 and took early retirement in March 2013. Time flies as they say!!

Are you any relation to Gillian Simmonite who was there the same time as me ( 70-75)? I believe she went on to marry Simon Stainrod, the professional footballer.

My first form teacher was Pamela Buckley, our classroom was the one with all the mice and other animals. Can't remember  the name of the lessons held there.
