Anyone who attended Ecclesfield G.S.in the 50s would tell you that the Gym teacher in Kes was undoudtidly "Billy Buck",which is not surprising as Barry Hines,the author,was a pupil there.

 

Is that reyt then tonio? Al tell ar Jud abart thee an this teacher ar tha's! :hihi:

Hi Taffy124, yes I went to Burngreave School, I think a little before your time 1951 to 1955. If you look back through the thread you should beable to pickup on others that went there.

I remember Mrs Paterson, Mrs Machin and Mr Ellis at Whitby Road. Mr Saxon was Junior School head and Miss Cocking Infant School headmistress.

 

I was in Miss Johnson's class one day and we were told to strip for PE. Of course we all stripped in the classroom down to underwear and vest. Glynnis Smith asked if she could be excused but it was refused. That day she had decided to wear her mothers suspenders and stockings .... what a sight. I remember the feelings vividly, I suddenly realised what girls were for. ;)

 

At Waltheof I started out in Mr Mawson's class . The only other form teacher I can remember was Mrs Furniss (Arts teacher) at the top of the tower block. I remember Mr Shipley (Maths), Mr Battersby (English)

 

I would give my right to go back there to that time, just for one term ... if only to settle some old scores and plant one on Julie Caley's lips :love:

 

Regards - Kevin

Hi Regblind,

I too left Burngreave School in 1955 we may have been in the same class, although there were 3 grades in the same year. I was in 4A but for the life of me I can't remember who the teacher was.

 

my dad walt atkin went to burngreave school around that time
