I remember going in the front if you were bad !!r
Very handy for me as the main entrance was opposite our house.
lived at 10 Buckley St West. Basically just down the road.
I went to Gidlow Middle from 1979 -1981 it was the best school I went to the only school experience I enjoyed so sad it's gone those pictures bring back great memories .
First school I taught at after qualifying, and one of the best!…First year 1973, class called File( a fish!)... Parked my Honda 50 cc by front door.
Ah Mr Carey taught the first years the class was called Fox. I was next door in Farndale with Mrs Scott in 74. Remember most of the teachers Sasha mentioned along with Mrs Davison, Miss Seed (married Bill Beaumont...) Mrs Walters. Mr Green Miss Gill Miss Caldow, later married Mr Karria and the head teacher Robert Jackson . Always remember Mr Jackson had a phobia to anyone booing......
