Brut33 20 Posted November 18, 2018 Report Share Posted November 18, 2018 I have to admit I'm not completely sure how this site works yet, but I'm quite surprised that Alderman Derbyshire school in Bulwell doesn't seem to be on this list of Nottingham schools. I realise that through the last years of its existence it was in special measures and had some awful press. But why isn't it represented on this list? I was there as a first year the very first year it changed from an all girls school to a comprehensive in 1970 and left in 1974. It wasn't wonderful but probably fairly average for 1970's education in Nottingham. I certainly didn't dread going there every morning (perhaps some mornings lol) The head teacher was Mr Turrent (may have spelt that wrong) There was Mr Foister the sports teacher, Mr Edwards (poor Mr Edwards (English) had a lot to put up with) Mr Reed (tall Mr Reed RE) Mr Belshaw my form teacher for a while. Mr Harrop (Metal Work) and many other's that I can't quite bring to mind at the moment. Pupils included Paul leatherland (long blond hair looked like Brian from the Sweet) Dean Smith Pauls mate. Louis Curtis the first guy I sat next to on day one. Robert Evans, Richard Hunt (long hair looked like a hippee became a close friend of mine after school finished. Lee Ramage (Rampage) Nicholas Read one of my mates at school. Evan Sorosski (almost definitely spelt wrong) he was almost never at school, I remember a teacher writing missing presumed dead on one of his reports. Glen Birkin, excellent footballer, Michel Prescott (don't think he became an MP) Peter Butters who I copied my first decent hair cut from, when I finally got away from the side partin. Maurice Staples (the haircut I didn't copy), Loads more and I'm sure the names will come back to me. Oh Keith Hull he was a great guy and became me. The girls well lets think, the one that sticks out above all others was Lindsay Binks (still gets my heart raising and for all the wrong reasons) Loretta Lowe (excellent athlete) Margaret Brodie, married Paul Marshall I think. Julie Thornton (surname not 100%) but I went out with her briefly, she was a year maybe even two below me when I was a Fifth year (cradle snatching I know) but she was tall and very pretty and looked older, she had a friend and I'm ashamed to say I can't remember her name but she had a glass eye, someone must remember her. There was also a lovely girl called Michelle who I really fancied she was the same age as me, quite athletic and we used to chat when i lifted weights in the gym just before the end of school in 1974 I remember doing the classic thing of carrying her books home along St Albans rd until we parted and she crossed Bulwell common, I'm guessing she must have lived on Rise Park or there abouts. Anyway far too much blabbing from me, perhaps someone mentioned could reply, I'd love to trade a few memories. 1 3 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
