First of all let me thank and congratulate all the contributors so far.

I was at the school in the same class and year as Ian and Jenny along with Peter Walker, Ian Hayward, Bob Powell, Pete Barton,

John Fleming John Moss etc 

Cant remember many girls names except Barbara Burton and her mate Christine  ( must admit I was I luv with Barbara - even if it only lasted a weekend) 

My favourite teacher was our form master Mr G A Stamper ( Jack ).      Hope this helps to jog memories.

You were in the same year as Dave Gillham and Dave Newstead who became a headmaster before he died some years ago, you were in a year above me but I rememmber you lived in Sherwood at the time and I was from Arnold, I left in 1960 and worked at I& R Morely in daybrook untilit moved to Heanor which was on the othe side of the moon as far as I was concerned so I went to the NCB as an apprentice fitter and then moved to a company that made mining machinerry and worked all over the world as an overseas service engineer then ended up as a shift engineer at British Gypsum in Barrow on Soar then left to join PDM at stoke bardolph till I took early retirement 9 years ago. now almost 77 and loving retirement

Thanks for your info Roundhead.  You started in textiles same as Me I knew 

Morley’s at Heanor as my Grannie lived a bit further a field at Codnor
