Abbeydale grange

Recommended Posts

Went to Grange 1969-1974.

The boys were made to do Scottish dancing as well as the girls,we were told it would improve our footwork when playing rugby!

Also remember hiding under the steps leading into Millhouses Park when Jeppo came hunting for absconders at lunch time.He was stood directly above us,surveying the horizon.

Form teachers were Miss Todd/Miss Sproull (1Q)

Mr Pashley (3G)

Mr Pollard (4+5S)

Our lessons at upper school were mixed with forms H & C.

I think we were the first to attend as a comprehensive in 1969.The lower school was on Hastings Rd where we spent the first 3 years,then up to the Upper School beyond the woods for 2 years,then 6th form(but not for me).And it was definitely mixed(bike sheds!)

Mr Dick Bate had a very brief stint as manager of Southend United FC in 1987, not sure how he landed that job...oh hang on...may have been referred by a certain Mr Wilkinson :gag:

Looking at the threads from arou d 2011 I am seeing a number of people I recognise, Brendan Murphy (Brenblade) and Jawaid Afsar (Afsar).

3G in 1977/8

4R in 1978/9

5G in 1979/80

 

Or anyone else in the year generally.

 

People I can recall - Brendan Murphy, Jawaid Afsar, Ian Sharpe, Peter Hickinson Daniel Cornwell, Steven Darrington, Karen Finney, Tracey Nicholson, Ruth Hawkesworth, Lisa Lorenz, Linda Needes, Fiona Machin, Angela Bower, Angela Barrows, Andy Grayson. I could go on.
