I have just joined today and have read with interest this forum. I have only just moved back to Bilborough after more years than I care to remember. I was at BGS during the 60’s and this has brought b

I always thought a quadratic equation was a move for four horses in synchronised showjumping !

This has brought back memories..... Was at Bilborough from 1962-67, starting out in !R. The teachers mentioned around that time are in the most case still filed away in my memory even after 50 + years

Can anyone remember Miss Trail (RE) and her little Austin seven with the old fashioned running boards, and Miss Scott 6foot tall driving a mini.

I remember Miss Trail, She was my form teacher in 1964 (Form 4T)

Happy memories? She told me that long hair was dirty. Told me mum what she said, mum was suitably unimpressed and threatened retribution!
 

Can you remember when she complained to Peake about us and he used to stand outside the classroom door watching us? Someone put a note in the register which said snitch. I can remember the lad who did it, was his surname Hook?

I can remember Peake watching us through the door window But I can't remember who put the note in the register. 

Had an English teacher, whose name escapes me, set us a short story to write for homework and when it was marked and handed back I had to ask him what "pornographic" meant (yes I was that innocent!) much to the amusement of the class. I got 8/10 for the story but he added the comment "almost pornographic". The plot involved my friend Keith Humphreys and a girl named Sue Brown but I did swap the surnames around...

I can remember him, he was a bit flamboyant, had a thing for Lindsey Cohen. 
Cant think of his name.

Were you there when Darryl Barker asked Miss Trail what fornication was in RE? 
 

Remembered it think it was Mr Crompton.

I thought it was Mr Crompton but I wasn't sure.

Yes I can recall Darryl Barker and the question!

I also got a lecture from Dr Peake after he saw me stuffing fresh grass cuttings down Brenda Thompson's Blouse one lunchtime....

Goodness thought you said you were shy with the opposite sex. I can’t recall Brenda Thompson to be honest. 
 

He was a nice lad Darryl Barker Lizzie.

Yes he was SG, he bought me a Beach Boys LP for my 17th Birthday and I’ve still got it! 
He used to knock about with Pete Ottoway (?), not sure if they were schoolfriends or if they knew each other from work.

It was down the back of her blouse and not the front!

I asked someone about Brenda Thompson - I knew her before we went to BGS. Someone said that they thought she had emigrated to Australia. I organised the 1997 Re-union and discovered that there are a large number of Bilborough pupils in Oz and NZ. Mr/Dr Jacob asked me to organise another reunion at Phil Soar's bash in 2014 but I told him it was someone else's turn to have a go but that I would help them, if they wanted me to do so. In 1997 the school was still standing so we could have a reunion there but now it has gone, so a venue would be a problem.
