I was in the prep section for three years. It was run by Joan Greenall, now deceased. Then I was in the big school for seven years. The heads were first, brother Vincent and then Brother Augustine-a quiet, encouraging man - read Pete Postelthwaite's autobiog. for a nice account. I hated my time to 0 level; then in the 6th form everything changed: teachers encouraged us rather than threatened; no more rote learning; teachers: Messers Howarth for English, Mountain for Economics and Victor for History.

I was one of the last, we didn't get the 6yh form, we had to go to Carmel College, next to Rugby Club on Prescott Road. It ended there, and De La Salle started, which was a mixed school. Damn !!
