I was there 1955-1958,lived next door to Johnny Graham in early seventies,he was PE teacher first then technical drawing after George Grimes came.Top teacher Mr.Graham,used to play football before he became a teacher,played for Aston Villa,Blackburn Rovers and others I forget,all first division teams then.Met George Grimes in The Broadfield Arms mid sixties,he remembered me "Let me buy you a pint Owen for all the slippering I gave you",and he did.Mr.Bonney who hit you with a folded bunsen burner tube.The metal work teacher,forgot his name,who gave you the cane and when asked why said "just in case you do something wrong.Fat Jack"woodwork"who would throw whatever was near him at you be it mallet, chisel or a lump of wood.There were some sadistic B------s!!there then.

Well fancy John Graham finishing up as a Teacher, I went to the Old School in Faringto0n with John who lived then in Stanifield lane, the house backed onto a field and I l;ived in Highfield Avenue which faced the field in which we kids played Soccer, even at school John's favorite club aws Aston Villa. I lost touch with him when I enlisted during the war and he carried on working in the Tool room at the Motors.

I seem to recall that George Grime played football for England schoolboys, anyone know what he's doing now retired obviously but I wonder where.
