Hello to everyone,
I am a new member and this is my first post, so I hope someone can help me with some information.
I was a pupil at the Tech College in the same building as the Library and Art School on Old Street during the years 1952/57, and I have no idea if the posts I have read in the forum are referring to the same place, particularly those indicating a different spelling.
The only teaching staff names I can recall were Mr Horrocks (School Principal), who took History, and Mr Williams who took Geography, and they both wore gowns. Others who took Maths, French, Science etc were not so formally dressed.
Prior to my leaving the college we went on a trip to Spain, and this was included with the Girls School, but I am so vague where everyone came from.
I joined Mather & Platt as an Engineering Cadet after leaving school, and moved to Australia some 12 years later.
As a start, I am trying to find out when the school ceased to operate, and any advice as to where info may be got from.
I am enjoying reading the forum on all subjects, and I will be pleased to receive any comments you may have, or questions of me.
