    Glaisdale Comp

    Mr Thorpe ran a popular weekly ballroom dancing club. I learnt the waltz, quickstep, foxtrot and a number of country dances. Also proved to be a good place to meet the girls.!

    Glaisdale & Hadden Park Pictures

    I sorted at Glaisdale in 1959 , later went to Bilborough Grammar to do the sixth form. Bilborough had no soul compared to a Glaisdale which had music and drama festivals as well as inter house sports. Glaisdale was a good school with caring teachers.

    Glaisdale teachers

    I remember Mr Lockwood who was a maths teacher. He ran the photography club and I was a member. He also worked with Mr Viles in metalwork where they invented a simple computer. This was 1961 and the computer parts were really simple relays which loads of lads made from simple materials. After months of construction with circuit boards each about three feet long put together with wires, the computer counted to ten in binary by lighting up torch bulbs. Main motivation was building sub circuits which earned a house point each! the good old days.
