I went to Nether Edge Grammar which shows how old I am. We had Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and some other classics I forget. I was a greek. I must have been the palest skinned greek ever born.

 

Hi Buck,

 

I was at Nether Edge about eight years after you and, when I arrived in 1950, there was a plethora of houses, eight I think, which is a lot for a roll of around 800 pupils. Four were ancient ie. Persians, Medes, Picts and Celts (I think) and four were modern ie. Irish, Scots, Welsh and Colonials. I was a colonial and our colours were brown.

 

During my time there a shake up took place when they changed uniform from brown to black and the houses were reduced to four, named after local castles ie. Conisborough, Peveril and two others. I was placed in Peveril and our colours were royal blue. I wonder whether this was in readiness for the move to the new premises (the new Jerusalem as the head was wont to call it).

 

Regards, Mike

Just remembered that my secondary school -High Storrs -in the Fifties had four houses named after Early Britons -Saxons,Picts,

Jutes and er I think Normans.

Anyone else recall their house names?

 

I was at High Storrs from 1945-1951. As well as the houses mentioned, there were also Franks and Trojans. There was, however, no Pict house.

At Colley Sec Modern in 1951 the houses were: Frobisher, Delius, Wilberforce, and (Forgot).

I left Dec 1954 so someone else could name the last one.
