I left Stamford in August 1939 & from memory there was Roberts (music), Buckley (Science), Friar (also Science), Dobson (Physical Training), Donnelly (Art), Black (History & (he could throw a decent piece of Chalk)), Oldham (Metalwork) Higson (? )(Woodwork) Turner & the Headmaster was Duncan. When Mr Duncan took class we all used to try to not sit in the front desks so we didn't get a shower.  I remember him for he tried to introduce Baseball to us & one day he was behind the batter all togged up but lifted  the Face-guard to say something & the ball hit him in the Mouth. I don't know why but we never saw the baseball tackle again. Buckley only had one eye & he always thought the kids were having a go at him. He was nasty tempered guy & was always despised by the kids -- I don`t think anyone liked him at all. Jayess

Our sports teacher used to take his eye out and put it on the desk.

I did as well but I loved it so much - I stayed - I think that my intake was the first to go in for the GCE, so they introduced a fifth year - I got promoted to 5b - but left at Christmas.

Ist  year we had Geoff Sidebottom, 2nd was Ray Bracegirddle, 3rd: Neil McConnell, 4th I think was J B Donelley, I seem to think that Trevor Rogers took us in the 5th, I wagged it half the time and remember very little (hoping that senility will help later), my report would read: Late 0,  Absent 54.

hi so the sea cadets were linked to stamford school in the forties , they were still there in the 60s. did they have any links with the army or r a f  in the forties ? with having ashton baracks just up the road from stamford . i know when i went to stamford there were quite a few kids that went , that lived at the baracks but that is the only connection i know , that was when there were lots stationed at lady smiths baracks which as gone now but not forgotten , there is a bit of the old wall and gateway left  :)
