Hinde House Comprehensive

Recommended Posts

both reports were nothing to do with the cancer scare at hh. the scare arose from the fabric of the building think it was asbestos panels under the windows. the school was closed for a time and the pupils attended the old carbrook school at attercliffe. there was a story about this in the sheffield star and a group set up to find out the cause a girl i went to school with set it up because an unusual pattern formed because some pupils were affected from the same year? will try to find the report later when i got time

 

Nice one ric ...

I had Miss Gregorian for English, though she had trouble speaking it, she was rather feisty.

I remember the riot. It was about the school uniform, being predominantly grey. Old Edwards was colour blind, you see.

Does no one remember Mr Hill, head of Chantry and Mrs Merryweather (Merrylegs) the music teacher?

There was Mr Powell the chemistry teacher who bore a remarkable resemblance to Beaker from the Muppets and Mr Holmes the Physics teacher with the flat cap.

Mr Ridgeway was a bit harsh as I recall, but always fair. Mr Edwards was as weird as they come. Yes Miss Pitts was more attractive than Mr Eccersley for french.

I was at Hinde House from 69 to 76. I remember playing Mr Creakle from Nicholas Nickleby on the School float in the Lord Mayor's Parade and winning the Sir Stuart Goodwin Trophy. Saw a different side to Mr Ridgeway that day. He was so chuffed with us.

I remember Harry Holmes from his Owler Lane days. My fingers are still tingling. :)

Hi, and thanks for the reply. Yes you started basically just as I had finished, and had to start at a school in Gloucestershire which was a major cultural shock (not entirely positive). I remember Miss Grigorian very well, I suppose hundreds of years ago she would have been Persian, she was quite cool. But Edwards and Turner were quite the stormtroopers I recall.

 

Is it true that there was a riot at Hinde House early in your time there? I heard rumour that the kids threw the chairs at the teachers on the assembly hall stage and it made the Sheffield newspaper.

 

Cheers.

Miss Grigorian came from Nepal...

I always thought she was as wickerman said Persian.

Only just seen this - loved t the Mojo (went from being 13) and was devastated when it closed!

I was 12 when we all went up from Owler Lane to Hinde House but still remember the first time I saw Mr Edwards when he gave us all the welcome speech at Owler Lane -telling us we were ‘the cream’ The next time I saw him was when he appeared from behind the curtains that created our makeshift classroom on the stage - our teacher was late in arriving and we were all gossiping and generally messing about.  He asked one of us why we weren’t working and he made the mistake of saying we had nothing to do whereupon Mr Edwards started tipping everyone’s satchels up, emptying books everywhere to demonstrate there was plenty we could be doing!!

A few people have posted about a riot. The one I remember was after HH had lost to City Grammar school at the football ground facing Concord Sports Centre. It was reported in the Star some of the coaches that had brought the CGS team and supporters were attacked. I left HH in 1971 the last year you could leave at 15 so I imagine it  was 70/71.
