    I attended Sudley Road Primary School from 1953 to 1959 (headmaster Mr Curl), Rose Lane/Morrison Boys School from 1959 to 1963, and Quarry Bank from 1963 to 1964 (headmaster Mr Pobjoy). School friends I have long since lost contact with (but wonder what happened to them???) include Andrew Caulfield and Dave Kerrigan.

    I was at Quarry Bank for 6 years ending in 1965 - I was in the first group that got to the 6th Form in five years - a new plan set up by Pobjoy, I presume.

    Since my birthday was at the end of the cut-off for the school year, with three years at Liverpool University I managed to graduate when I was 19, three weeks before my 20th bitrhday...:^)

    I remember Mr Cook the Woodshop teacher, who never got the memo from Pobjoy about ending corporal punishment, and "Biddy" the maths teacher, who said "If you can't do maths, learn how to play the guitar"....

    I guess you would have been in the class a year ahead of me in the 6th Form.

    Yep... especially when you are 21 years old - but I moved halfway to Michigan first....

    Sorry, don't know Stu. I'll ask my BIL sometime, he was one year behind and still lives in Liverpool.

    His class recently had an unofficial, word of mouth reunion, and they got around 26 out of 32 people attending. Would have got one more, but one was the UK Attorney General (is that the right term?), and he was busy giving Blair opinions at the time...

    Rice Lane infants & juniors in Walton then on to Alsop Lower in County Rd then Alsop Upper on Queens Dr Walton.

    Fond memories in both. Don't suppose any ex teachers are viewing this but I've always wanted to thank Mrs Pemberton, Mr Wall and Mr Brown from Rice Lane and Mr Corlett, Mrs Jones, Mr Groves and Mrs Valentine from Alsop.

    It's only when you grow older and see more of the world that you realise just how good they were.

    Sad to hear that Mr. King had died. I remember his classes. He'd take us to Freshfield, or the Lake district and then ask us to write an essay about it, or take us to the cinema and our homework would be to write a film critique of whatever film he'd taken us to see. Great days, although I didn't realise it at the time.

    I, on hearing of your affection for B King tried to see if there were any obituaries or death notices for him in the local press and elsewhere, but no.
    You would have thought somebody would have had something to say about him, odd aint it?

    I went to St Cuthberts Junior School from 1967 to 1974.
    I lived on Prescot Road and I remember a cow escaping and running into the house next door. They couldn't turn it around in the hallway so led it out through the back door.

    Do you remember Miss Delaney? She taught there for years. I found a website that mentioned her as being with the children who were evacuated to Wales in the war.

    Our Lady of Good Help, Wavertree. If you were naughty the boys got the strap and the girls had to spend the morning doing sums in Mrs Melvins class. Mr Rice was headmaster during my time there. Other teachers I remember were Mrs Hallam and Miss Bridie O'Donnell who played the guitar to us. She and her friend (Jackie?) were a folk duo - they used to have an act involving a little doll they held with it's feet on a board which they hit in time to their music so that the doll danced up and down. They appeared on telly once I recall. Happy memories of my time there
    Also if I could just hijack the thread for a moment
    I'm trying to identify the school in a photo and Boaler Street is prime suspect so far. I'd be grateful if anyone who went to Boaler St could take a look at my thread in Genealogy and see what they think. I know it's a big ask to remember a building you were last in aged 11 but would be really grateful if you could take a look.

    Interesting information, Tillymint2.

    Bridie O'Donnell indeed made a name for herself in Liverpool folk singing circles as a founder of the Spinners, later to become an all-male quartet. She went on to join with Jacqueline McDonald as "Jackie and Bridie" and later "Jacqui and Bridie." Here's a Google with more information about her.

    Hi Chris, thank you so much for that- I never realised they were both so well known. Sadly having looked at the information have discovered Bridie passed away some years ago. She was a lovely person and great teacher - taught me in 1st year infants and I remember her with great fondness.

    Hi Tillymint2,
    there's a final meeting of the Jaqui & Bridie folk club,though of course Bridie is no longer around now! This is on the Philharmonic hall,on Sunday 23 January 2011.It will be 50yrs since the first one,and though I can't say I've heard much of them,I know they were pioneers in their way,and influenced many!

    I went to St.Cecilias county primary school in Green Lane, then went to Blessed Ambrose Barlow facing the Jolly Miller pub. It was a brand new school and we were the first juniors to start there. We merged with a school called Leyfield and one called St.Pauls from the West Derby Village area. I left to start my first job in 1963. Blessed Ambrose Barlow is now Liverpool School for the Deaf.

    The school was situated on Stanley Road in the flower streets and had its own swimming baths in the basement. It educated both Catholic and Protestant pupils who unbelievably were kept separated in different playgrounds and had different home leaving times. Yet these kids all played out together afterwards. A case of the establishment thinking it knew best. New housing now stands in its place.

    Daisy Street school had a play centre daily from 4pm till 6pm where all children of the area played, the boys football or cricket, and the girls dancing. When ever you passed the ball to your winger he`d be busy looking through the window at the girls dancing

    That is so amazing, TM! Couldn't believe that that was straight up when I came across it just now... But I've now followed the Thread to the end and realised it's all genuine. Yes, Jacqui and Briduie were really big in this city in the '60s and '70s

    Hi John, yes it's straight up. Bridie taught at Our Ladies in the 60's. She used to entertain us playing songs which she taught us to sing. One of the ones I remember her teaching us was Johnnie Todd which you may remember was later used as the theme tune to Z Cars.
    Jackie would also visit the class occasionally. Were you a fan of theirs ?

    I watched the Heroes of Comedy last night. The subject was Arthur Askey [a sort of hero of mine] his scool photograph reminded me of Tilly's, well scrubbed with stiff white collars. I looked him up on Wikie and checked out his school and their old-boys and came across this...

    He boasts of appearing on stage with many including Tilly's teacher duo.

    Jacqui and Bridie feature in the early 60s Liverpool documentary 'Beat City'. They are seen playing in the Gregsons Well, top of Brunswick Road as too are the Spinners.

    The Spinners actually ran a folk club based at Gregson's Well and Jacqui and Bridie were regular performers there.
