I went to Robins Lane Seniors, 1955, Miss Lancaster was head, she was soooo strict, I remember Miss Green ,needlework, miss Taylor, took us for cookery, Mrs Eden, Mrs Bate, Miss Sheard later became Mrs Fitzpatrick, and last but not least my favorite lovely Miss Ashton. Acouple of those teachers mentioned were very strict, but the worst one was Miss Cole,my friend refused to go to school because of her ,in the end my friends Mum took her out and sent her to Central Modern.

Mr Briscoe, Geography, Mr Bowles Technical Drawing, Mr Burket P.E.

I was here for two years 68-70, my fav teacher was Miss Chorley who taught English and was my form teacher in the 1st year. Also remember Miss Lancaster, Miss Cole (holy terror!), Miss Beaumont and Mrs Fitzsimmons who was lovely. Can't remember the name of the sewing teacher who told me I'd never get a husband, lol!

Mr Woods was the Headmaster, (the cane wasn't to bad off him) But it was bad off his deputy Bill Garner ? ouch, Mr Reece was sports etc he was great, Mr Marsh (Maths) Mr Thomas (Woodwork) There was Johnny Bowles I think he was Technical drawing ?
