Was here in the juniors from 1967-71. I was taught by Mrs. Roebuck, Mr. Broadbere, Mrs. Cook, Mr. Swift. Mrs Cook was my favourite. Head was Mr. Smeltzer, a truly inspiring man who even made assembly interesting!

I started at Windlehurst in the immediate post war year and remember most of the teachers fondly, apart from that dragon of a headmistress Annie Clarke, who once belted me round the chops for throwing a snowball. Still in touch with a number of classmates- Vince Travis, Roger Clarke and the late Stan Crosby who  passed away very recently.The following teachers taught me- Miss Phillips, Mrs Challinor, Mrs Pearce, Mr Metcalfe (my favourite) and Mrs Audrey Gertrude Swift. Many happy memories apart from Miss Clarke and the smell of boiling cabbage coming from the canteen.
