Peveril Secondary Bi-Lateral, Aspley 1966 to 1972


Recommended Posts

Wondered if there are any members around that went to Peveril during the years (approximately) 1966 to 1972.

Wondered if anyone who went to Peveril at all, has any pictures to post.

Does anyone remember any of the teachers names?

I remember Mrs Dodd and Mr Williams. If I think about it, some more names may come back to me.

Do any of you remember our weeks trip to Robin's Hood Bay?

Jane Flint here. I was at Peveril from 66 to 71. Miss or Mrs Pendry was one of my form teachers. Mr Skillbeck in Geography. Mr Green in History.

Miss Fisher was Headmistress. Mr Witham Maths. Mr Glosop French. Mr Howe Dept Head and Mr Samuel Ward Head.

I may well know you as it seems we were there at the same time. I didn't go on the Scarborough trip but remember some who did.

Is there any point in starting a topic inviting response and then not responding when you get a response.

That sometimes happens when the person who posted the original message forgets they did it and never gets round to coming back to this site. Prefect has never logged on again since the day they joined and posted that first question

What you have to remember is that some of our members are elderly.

There is nothing to stop members sending them a PM, that will be duplicated

in an email to them, and remind them to re visit.

If they subscribed to the topic, they will get an email notification anyway.

If they allowed it in their settings there will be an email button against their profile,

though their email address will not be visible on the site.

SENDING THEM AN EMAIL VIA THE BOARD WILL SEND THEM YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS>

I was at Peveril from 68 to 71. I remember Sam Ward (Head), Witham (English), Smith (Music), Peter Leigh (Sports) and Kercum (Metal Work). I have very fond memories of the school; Witham helped me a lot since I couldn't speak a word of English. I joined Peveril 3T1 in 1968 when I moved from India to Britain. I seem to remember that I was the only non-white kid at the school at that time. My kid brother, Jas, attended the school years later.

Hi Raj I had just left Peveril when you started. The majority of the time was good and made some good friends while there.

Sam Ward was headmaster when I was there and Skillbeck ( Geography) Fletton, Witton and Wragg ( Woodwork and Metalwork) Pugh ( PE) Witham ( English) Cole ( Maths)

At the time we had a lad joined us in the third year Satnam Singh Johal and he was the only non-white lad in the school .

Hi, I was at Peveril between 64 and 68, leaving at 4th year level due to my Dad getting a lectureship. My Dad was Mr Wragg. The head teacher was Stan Ward, not Sam. When I started Peveril, Miss Lee was senior mistress. My form teacher was Miss Powell, who later became Mrs Pratt. My father's colleagues in the CDT were Mr Robey, Mr (I can see for miles) Pratt and Mr Bacon. I had Miss Poole for Home Ec. and later Mrs Bamber, a dark haired Dusty Springfield lookalike. Other staff were Miss Innocent and Mr Alcock ( no smutty comments please!) (English). Does anyone remember Mrs Simkins (Art)? There was Mr Edwards (RE) who had been a POW on the Burma- Siam railway. Mr Butts (Geography). Mr Holder,  Mr Bulmer and Miss Jones ( Maths), Mr Smith (Music)  Mr Thornhill, and Miss Dewsbury (PE), they followed Mr Pugh and Mrs Bagshaw.  Hope this will help some remember.

My sister attended Peveril between 1961 and 1966 so your time would have overlapped with hers to some extent.

 

I remember her talking about a. Miss Salavanska who taught English, I think and a Mr Beresford whom she didn't much like.

An older post but for what it’s worth my good lady wife assures me that the head was SAMUAL Ward usually known to the pupils as Sam. Certainly not Stan.

Hi all

I was at Peveril from 1966 - 1971, just in case anybody remembers me I’m Barry Spick.
Enjoyed my time at the school, been reading the other posts and bringing back to me the names of the teachers.

Sorry got no photos.

My sister was at Peveril but left around the time you started there, badgersoft. Many of my peers from Berridge Primary also went there from 1969 to 1974.  The ones I'm still in touch with vary in their experiences of the school. Some loved it, others didn't enjoy their time there.

 

I remember going with my parents to an open evening at Peveril around 1963. It was a big place with all sorts of facilities. We had nothing to match it at Manning.  I also remember going to see a performance of A Christmas Carol in which my sister and Su Pollard took part.

I’ll mention your name to my wife as she was at Peveril the same time as you. She was Jane Flint back then aka Flinty.
