Boys School Staff List — 5 Comments

  1. The Boys School Staff List has been updated. Please leave a reply to update this page or correct any errors.

  2. What ever happened to Mr Ashmore?. The PE teacher who used to inspect all the boys to make sure they weren’t wearing underpants underneath their football shorts. Apart from my reminisces please add me to your 1974 list.

  3. There was another Mr Johnson, a Canadian, around the mid to late 1950’s. I think he taught just general subjects.

  4. Hi Tony, I noted your wording…
    “Please leave a reply to update this page or correct any errors”

    I’d like to make some corrections/additions regarding Mr.Toms. His entry is currently fairly vague… as in – 19** to 197*. He was most certainly at the school already, when I started in Sept’ 1972. I was there from Sept’ 1972 thru to June/July 1977 (Goodmayes Lane). In all that time I don’t ever recall him being a Maths teacher at all. He may well have been before my arrival, but not whilst there. Mr Fielding was our regular and very imposing Maths teacher.

    What I do know for 100% certain is, regarding Mr.Toms, he both ran and held the post for “Computer Studies”, usually double-lessons. That’s ‘official’ as it was a part of our curriculum.
    They were always held upstairs, his classroom facing the West-playground.

    Calm, tall & with his low-tone voice, he was always advocating computers. Back then, during class, we all used Pink/White Binary Punch cards (seems ancient, so archaic now). He even took us (whole class), down to Ilford Town Hall (their I.B.M room). Back then the computers were as large as a van, the trip took some arranging. Mr Toms was there for the whole time I was there,’72-’77, so you can fill-in the latter, although I can’t help with prior to ’72. Lastly, you may be interested with this. When Mr Birchinall left as Headmaster & Mr Pusey took over, 1975 from memory, Mr Toms took over as ‘Deputy Headmaster’, when Mr Pusey was away.

    I have a photograph taken in Aug’ 1973, of Mr Toms & I in a cable-car. The cable-car was at Rudesheim on the River Rhine, above a vineyard (East Bank). Each was a two-man car & we were ‘buzzed’ by a USAF F.4 Phantom jet (Spangdahlem) quite alarming as we were almost 1/2-way across, but also rather exciting. With irony, I later saw this same cable-car in the Elvis Presley film “G.I.Blues” (filmed during the early 1960’s I believe & IIRC, the cable-cars were still the same) I haven’t scanned the old B&W ‘127’ yet, but when I do, where should I post it? (Email it to – contact@mayfieldmemories.me.uk – Tony Gocke)

    I hope you find the info’ on Mr Toms helpful (it’s accurate) & hope it plugs a gap.

  5. In response to K Hudson’s remarks. Mr toms taught me maths both in year 1 and in year 5 for GCE. I attended a few times his computer club. There were no computer lessons in my days it was extra curricula.
