St. Augustine's Catholic School

Recommended Posts

Anyone go to this school back in 1967ish.

Me & my sister both attented this school. We wasn't cathoics, but my mum is & she got them take us on. I remember the nuns & a german male teacher. The headmistress was, Sister frances. I cannot find anything on the net about the school & the nuns, only details of the school today.

Would love to hear from anyone that went to the school. We didn't stay there long. We were always on the move & to a different school.

The only St Augustines school" I know of was in Carlton . I didn't go , I went to St Pauls C of E. but a couple of friends of mine went there, around that time too, Carol and Vivian Lewis, and a couple of brothers named Alex and Raymond (I don't remember their surnames)

I thought one of the Catholic secondary schools was "Loreto" - but it may have been an all-girls school!

I am from an Italian family and my first ever school (1966/67) was St Augustines on what is now Westville Gardens, next to the St Augustines Church on Woodborough Rd. The school has been knocked down I don't know when but there is a community centre there in its place.The church is still there. I then transfered to another St. Augustines on Southcliffe Road in Carlton. This is now called Sacred Heart Catholic School. I was there from 1967/68 up until 1972. I would welcome any news from pupils from that era.

Benvenuti Moondog I did take some Christening photos at St Augustines in the late 70s, you would probably know the family.

They lived in Gedling and then moved to the top of Woodborough Road.

Me and most of my brothers and sisters went to "Gussies" in the 50s and 60s. Sister Francis was a toughie!!

I was there 1953-59!

There's a bit more info on Friends Reunited if you can be bothered to navigate through it.

I liked the site in its early days but now.............???

I went to St Agustines on carlton hill in 1945 to 1951. I wasn't a catholic but it was the nearest school in those days. they talk today of kids bullying kids but there it was the teachers who were the bullys. I saw one lad so terrified of the headmaster whilst learning to read at his desk

a puddle of urine appeared at his feet on the wooden floor. Another boy was kicked hard in the behind by the headmaster for not getting into line quick enough, the lad squealed with pain. there was only a couple of decent teachers there.

Yes it was Lorreto, but it was St Catherine's first and it was an all girls Catholic Grammar School back in the 1960's......

Ah I fondly recall the St Catherine's girls...........

In the early 1960s I was at The Becket which was the boys catholic grammar and many of the boys had sisters at St. Catherine's, if we had not got to know girls across the river at Mundella, then we would try to get to know girls at St Catherine's through their brothers.

Pity TRE has'nt reglegged since January last...could have swapped hellish tales of the cruelty in that dump.

Oberst Shulman...who hid behind God..the evil swine.

Sister Francis..Mengle in a habit.

Casey the 'retired teacher'...evil.

May they rot in hell.

On a recent Nottm visit i bumped into an old Gussy class mate Mikey Isumbert...stood there mirror imaging my hell stories..we both left in '72 and are still scarred. A few snowflakes and treehuggers were badly needed in that alma mater.
