I was on the Mayfield Secondary School staff for two years before it became Mayfield High School, where I am still teaching. I am one of only two teachers from the old Mayfield Secondary School still on the staff, the other being Phil Huxford.

  1. I attended Mayfield from 1974 to 1977. Although I didn’t realise it at the time it was fantastic place to go to school thanks to teachers like yourself, Neil Ashmore and Lyndon Lynch etc. I have many many great memories of the old place.

  2. I remember you and especially Mr Huxford who was in charge of our class for PE. On the way, while crossing the road to play football at Goodmayes extension, I got knocked down by a motorbike!
    I stayed on the rest of the day even though I had a massive bruise on my thigh where the motorbike hit me! My mum and dad were horrified when I got home and told them.
