Boys School Pupils 1960 to 1969 — 33 Comments

  1. Roger Turner has added his name to the 1962 Boys School Pupil List.

  2. I left in 1962 and have a good memory of students and teachers. Mr. Hicks was the Head and Mr. Frankland one of the PE staff along with Rue and Birchell. English – Mr.Crawley and Maths – Mr. Ivy, nicknamed ‘Bouncer’, and Mr. Moore. All were highly qualified eg Bsc. Science – MR. Cutting, Moore, Scott and as far as I recall one of the very few Secondary Modern Schools offering GCSE`s. I was in form 5E1.

  3. I think you have a couple of the masters names spellled rongly Rojer. Mr Birchnall and Mr Rew, the big Canadian PT master, the chap that held me upside down by my ankles and shshshooook mmeee until mmy fags, mmmatches and ddinner mmoney were scattered all over the floor. He was handy with the slipper and blackboard ruler too.

  4. Kenneth Pagett has added his name to the 1965 Boys School Pupil List.

  5. Does anyone have any news of Roy Blane, Mick Brackley, Kelvin Ferrera and John Readings? All were in the class of 64

  6. To Tony Atkinson: I also felt the effects of Mr. Rew’s slipper when I arrived for PT without my name printed in my shorts. The fact that I did not stow the PT garments at school but brought then from home specifically for the lesson cut no ice – his rules ruled!

  7. Hi can i be added to the list please 1963 – 1968 finishing in Mr Braham’s form
    many thanks

  8. Yes Keith, physical punishments were rife there and at most schools in those days. The only masters that didn’t carry out such nasty punishments for almost nothing in most cases as far as I can remember were, Mr Reeves, Mr Hickie, Mr Summers, Mr Marriot, Mr Braham, Mr Chalk and perhaps a few others during my time at Mayfield. These master recieved much more respect from the boys. Pop Saunders was a bit of an enigma, He always looked terribly ferocious and always went about carrying a big thick cane, but I never heard of him actually useing it, his looks reminded me of Mr Quelch in Billy Bunter books. Mr Ivey it was said would open the classroom door, go out into the corridor and come running in wielding his cane to thrash the lad bent over his desk, but may have been a rumour. Mr Skinner whopped you with a length of wooden dowel rod. Mr Frankland would whop you hard with anything that came to hand, cane, climbing rope in the gym, slipper ect. Mr Rimmel cane and once whilst thrashing a lad called Bramley very hard it flew out of his hand and landed on top of the cupboard. Most of these masters I’m sure delighted in it and were weirldy sadistic. But there yer go, we survived to tell the tale.

  9. Twas a cold winter’s Saturday evening 1st December at a hall in Harlow just off the A414 , Essex, when three of us met again. There were Graham Crook, his brother Roger and myself, we sat for a Christmas meal and chewed the fat on the years gone by. Roger was in the year above Graham and I, my brother John was in his class. After the meal we sang Christmas carols with gusto and hearty voice, reminded me of school again. I’d left my wife at a friend’s house about 1/2 mile away, my friend Vic came with me as we were guests of Graham. We had met a couple of months earlier at another hall down in Southend where we dined together, this was just previous to our lunch together at a caravan site near Happisburgh. Graham and I spoke of meeting up again in the summer with Steve Marcar and Alan Thomson up in Norfolk again. So Graham, Alan and Steve i’ll let you know when we’re up in the wilds of Norfolk again with the caravan. Wishing all those who read this a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all and your families.

  10. Steve Marcar worked for a while after leaving school at a garage in Goodmayes called ”Auto Electrics” I was a mechanic there at the time, a bit older than him, he was a funny chap, went around singing pop songs a lot.

  11. Left in 1960 to join army, please add to Pupil List.

  12. I think the teachers name was Rue, I thought he was OK, did not know he was Canadian though. Someone mentioned a teacher named Rimell. His father, Eric, was a friend of my dad. He got a holiday job working in a Solicitors office in the summer break and they were impressed and took him on full time. I liked him, he seemed a good person, he was famous for having selotape on the frayed cuffs of his suit. I hope he did OK as he seemed poor.

  13. Mr Rew was Canadian, he was our form master for one year, he walloped me with a split blackboard ruler and held me up in the air by my ankles and shook me until my fags and matches dropped out of my pockets. He also hooked be onto a coat peg in the cloakroom by my braces and left me there, but he was ok really. Mr Rimmel was a strange chap, he took us for mathes. He owned an ancient James motorbke. We all used to wait for him in the playground to come sailing in on it with a huge old patched up black oilskin billowing out in the breeze, we used to cheer as he went popping past to park it in the bike shed. We heard he was studying to become a barrister.

  14. Hi I’m Malcolm Boult I was in Mr Pusey class 3c with my good friend at the time Peter Wademan artist who my wife Sheila recently found as I have been looking for ever for. As I’m in Sydney so we thought we would put name in and wow!
