Mr Gillow actually died when I was in year 11, and he left braimwood when i was in year 10, he had a heart attack or something. He was classic though, the one way to get out of a french lesson was by asking him a question about the Channel Tunnel!

headmistress when I was there (1972-1975) was Miss Carry and she got married and changed her name to Mrs Rowe, I remember Mr Schulman, Miss Bowler - what a woman - walloped me because my seams weren't straight on my apron. I remember Mr.Llewellyn very well and Mr.Gillow the French teacher, you're right - he must have been there 30 years !! Mr.Fawley was one of my form teachers and yes I rolled mercury in my hands Regular Smiley and so was Miss Robinson - taught RE was well as English and I think the PE teacher was Mrs. Hale, I certainly remember a little woman who absolutely loved playing hockey !. Mrs Frank was an absolutely massive lady who did art.

I remember going to Middlethorne, it'll have been my last year I think before I went to Foxwood, I didnt like it there, open plan and very very noisy.

Braimwood was snobby in those days, as somebody said, if you were posh, you were in, if not, you were beared with lol.

Still, happy days Regular Smiley

''Keep your tongue still'' and ''i cant see through lumps of human flesh''were just a couple of baggy bowlers sayings.
I was made to stay in her class at break time on many occasions for losing needles or because my school bag wasn't under the table properly which resulted in Miss Bowler kicking it to the other end of the classroom.
Being made to read 'The laws of the land' book was one of her favourite punishments

Ah memories. I too would love to see any pictures of the school.
I can't imagine many will be left as the school wasn't around when camera phones were easily available.

I went to braimwood in the late 90s with 2 posters in here. Reddy and Tony . I was in Mrs jenners form. I despised Mrs Gill and she despised me too.
Mr friff
Andrea Knowles
French support teacher miss perdreux?
Mike Williamson (tosser)
Many more too.

Some of the best times of my childhood at this school.

Realise this thread is long dead...but I went here in the 90's. Probably 1991-1996. I remember a lot of these teachers on the other Braim Wood threads; Mr Gillow, Mrs Waddington. Mr Fawcett was one that hasn't been mentioned, he was a good old guy - taught English and was fairly relaxed. Also Mr Hoyle; he was an interesting chap. I could be wrong but thought he might have started life as a substitute - but he was a little younger and more into what the kids were into. I found out years later that he was a huge Dr Who fan and filmed his own Dr Who episodes. As someone with an interest in media and film, this was really interesting. Wonder what he's doing?
Anyway - these pictures have really brought it all back.
I remember it all - the trips abroad, the gym, the tennis courts, the big mamma (yes, it was mamma) and the rugby pitch out back, footy pitch up front. When I got sent here by mum and dad, I was furious, - I wanted to go to Roundhay with all my mates. But BW was great, it really was. Yes, all boys meant no girls but it didn't matter.
I genuinely had a great time at high school, and did well academically. We don't live in Roundhay / Oakwood any more, but if we did I'd have sent my kids there, no doubt.
