Mr Judson taught us at Shevington Comp (Shevvy). Misbehave and he had a thick pump (a bumper) which he used to hit us with. Owch.

j. Houghton is James Houghton not to me confused with John from Calico Wood Farm. Is the ? on Kevin’s list John Wright? Where has all the time gone since that photo was taken? Oh for our own Tardis so maybe we could have another crack at it. Unbelievable that back in those days the classes at Mike’s Lane School were of 48 pupils to one teacher. The class was sub divided into three divisions A, B, and C, supposedly based on ability. However it was very generalised rather than subject specific. Fortunately during my teaching career we had subject specific setting and only had one set to deal with at any one time. No one ever mentioned the mental health issues in those days. Mr. Judson replaced Bob Baker when the latter accepted a post at Standish Boys “Grammar School”. I hope all those fellow 47 other pupils are alive and well, bearing in mind the knowledge of those that sadly aren’t. ????
