  1. I did my A Levels at BGS in 1975 and passed 3. Don't know the figures for our year, but can think of quite a few who passed 3, certainly more than 9, I would think. Something a bit dodgy, though, about A Level French grades that year!

    So sad. I'm a Forest fan but was so sorry to see what happened today. Hope they'll soon bounce back

    Nottingham cinemas

    Think this must be the cinema I used to go go in the 70's. They showed arty subtitled European films, often with strange titles - I remember going to see The Goalkeepers Fear of the Penalty - a German film, I think

    Unashamed Political comment

    Documents lost in a fire is often the standard reply concerning adoption - ask for proof

    Who was your first crush on ?

    Think your definition of men to avoid, Jill - immature, rowdy, badly turned out thickos is spot on!

    Notts Schools Trips

    You missed out on a good experience, Jill I went on an exchange visit to France from school when I was 13/14. Very nerve wracking at that age - first time on a plane and having to stay with strangers and cope with the French language all day. Ended up being good friends with my French friend who came to stay with us in Nottm a few weeks later.

    I for one loved school. Grew up on a Council Estate, passed the 11+ and went to Grammar School. Not a perfect school but always grateful for a good education. Both my Mum and Dad passed to go to Grammar School in the early 30's, but neither set of parents could afford for them to go
  11. Thank, Ian - a while before I was at the school, then
  12. Don't remember there being such a Society at Glenbrook Junior Girls - perhaps a bit before my time

    Season of Goodwill??

    I don't agree with a lot of things you say, but that wasn't the point I was making. I can ignore things I don't agree with but don't feel the need to criticise personally on here
