    Hi there Gillandh. Welcome to the forum.

    Victoria hasn't popped in here for quite some time so she might not see your post.

    Hope you are enjoying the forum.

    I, um, went to Farnworth Grammar School, near Bolton. But there is a Liverpool, or rather, Everton Link...

    Its also the School that Alan Ball attended in his youth. The English teacher there, Mr Stevens, still remembered him. He used to live (his mother still did I believe) near to us, a few streets away by the New Bury area of Farnworth.

    Another famous pupil was Kenneth 'They think its all over' Wolstenholme, who came from nearby Walkden. Now isn't that a coincidence?


    Shamefully, the school became a victim of Thatchers fear of 'Elitism in the Working Class' mistake in 1983, and was closed, which had a profound effect on the rest of my education.

    When I was in school back in the dark ages, every kid in the city was given a souvenier of the coronation. I still have mine and it has never been used.

    No he didn't. I went to school with Derek Twigg. He went to Our Ladys Junior school and Fisher Moore secondary modern in Widnes. At that time The Wade Deacon was a Grammar school and Derek Twigg never passed the 11 plus.

    St Margarets L8 (Now call St Margarets of Antioch)

    St Anne's, Overbury Street

    St Agnes Secondary, L13


    St Agnes School, Broadgreen Road, was built sometime in the 60s. It was knocked down in the early 80s I think.

    St Margarets school is still there, just!

    St Annes - still there, but with a "new" building (think the old one still there.

    Default schools

    Fonthill Road Primary 1925 -30 Can only remember Mr Stott the
    Headmaster who helped me get a scholarship, and two teachers - Mr Irlam
    who took me in his sidecar a couple of times to visit my grandparents in
    Ormskirk (his family lived near Burscough somewhere) and Mr Kaye(nick-
    named Kay-Kay,after the toffee very popular at that time). We were divided
    into houses - Livingstone, Shackleton, Shaftesbury, and Wilberforce (I was in
    Shaftesbury).
    Alsop High 1930 -36. Mr Halford the Headmaster. He fought a losing
    battle trying to persuade us to to lose our Scouse accents! I can remember a
    few of the teachers - Mr Arundel who taught Spanish in between putting on
    Gilbert and Sullivan operas (quite successfully) at Queens Drive Baths, Nat
    Cooper the French teacher who just as unsuccessfully tried to convince us
    that Rugby League was a much better game than football. And a few others,
    but I'll stop there.
    It's a sobering thought that for a brief moment they've been brought back!

    I went St Bonaventure in Walton, always known as "Bonnies". Since changed name to Archbishop Beck. Rubbish school but best Teacher was Brian King, the wonderful English Teacher, who sadly died young but not before ensuring half the scallies in the area developed a love of books. Wonderful man.

    Default Skools I can just remember

    Hi,
    Anfield Road Prep Mr Applebee Headmaster and A Miss Keysloe when I first started.Remember the big Red Cannonball of Cheese we all got as did most schools at the end of the war.It was a gift from the people of Holland in appreciation of them getting back their Freedom TheWoans,Grattons,MacQueens,Hoggs.Hunter,Blackwell ,Paget all great guys
    and good school mates.

    Then St.Margarets Anfield before the Church got burnt Down.Mr Simpson "The Boss" ruled with a rod of Iron and swung a mean cane.Cossie the French teacher if you fell asleep and your mouth opened he could get a piece of chalk in your gob from 30 ft.Smithy a tiny man with a Synthetic rubber Boomerang,had no hesitation of belting you across the face with it.Then a teacher got me to try for the Junior School of Art.Hope Street and Gambier Terrace.I wanted to be a Naval Architect come Draughtsman.Almost a complete disaster as normal subjects were left behind.But it was great with mixed classes.I see a Mr Eric MacGill is still alive and involved in a new Art Centre of Some Kind and He is 93 years Old.and would still be a gentleman and good teacher as he was in 1948.Mr Ballard ex British Army Middle weight Boxing Champion.He used to take us for boxing lessons.A male model was "Kid Tanner" and he used to help Mr Ballard.
    Managed to catch up on all the Studies and became an engineer.Went to sea and Became a "P*** Artist". I still reckon they were the best days of my Life
    at all the Schools.Had the last 2 1/2 years of Apprenticeship in Scotland and did studies at Paisley Tech.Those Teachers were brilliant and all Scots.
    School of Art just had the edge over them all though Best Regards Ken B

    Default 4 - o - Clock

    The teacher who most impressed me was an English teacher called Mr Melia at Thomas Beket. He encouraged the kids to be creative. It was a rough School and his lessons were a break from the endless offering out.

    Paddy,
    I left BJA with nowt except a hatred for Gertie. Now have a Master's degree from the University of Birmingham. She was too busy looking for the devil in us to see any potential.

    I went to Sandfield Park - brilliant school made me the person I am today I owe them a big Tank You for it. It was the only school I was allowed to attent with being a wheelchair user until Broadgreen opened its gates which is where I went to Do my GCSE's from 91 -94. Kids now a days have more choice with more and more schools being adaptable.

    Hi Paddy,
    I think you'd probably find it very hard to find anyone who had a good word to say about her. My mum always thought she was wonderful - Gertie could lay on the charm for parents - but had her eyes opened when my sister worked at as a nursery nurse at the kids home Gertie was based at, and told my mum how she treated the kids.

    Double whammy - being in care and getting Gertie in charge of you: a sadist in a habit.

    Default Hurtful

    Kevin: Well I tried to claim against them for abuse a few years back. They went out their way to hurt me. So any other Liverpool folk who go down that road they should be careful. The Church in Liverpool has held out for years against scandal whilst other places notably Ireland have tried to face up to it.One more point,they take away your right to remember your childhood!
