Music teacher was Derek Parkyn-Marshall.

Brilliant man! :-)

I was atĀ Glaisdale from 1954 to 1960 and was in Castle house. Mr Unwin was the head, Mrs Newton the deputy when I first went there. They both scared me to death! Miss Wing (later Mrs Wrathall) was my form teacher and English teacher. Her husband taught metalwork at the school. 25 years later my 11 year old daughter came home from her first day at a comprehensive on the other side of the city and told me her form teacher and English teacher was called Mrs Wrathall and her husband taught metalwork at the school.... Yes it turned out to be the same couple which seemed very strange. Mrs Wrathall and I spent a good part of the first parents' evening we went to reminiscing about our days at Glaisdale!

I was in wollaton, I thought we always lost. My form room was lab 2 with Mr bird.

Mr Bird!.....who, of course, we called Dickie.... I'd forgotten him. He taught my class O-level biology. He lived in Wollaton and a friend and I occasionally babysat for him and his wife.

I've been thinking about this since I posted it and feel I've mis-remembered. It was Mr Thorpe who taught us biology. I think Mr Bird taught chemistry didn't he? In my day girls weren't allowed to take O-level chemistry; that was reserved for boys and we had to take biology, which, of course, the boys couldn't. Imagine distinctions like that happening now!
