This school was the eptitome of a 1960s and 1970s style working class English school. If you've ever seen the school scenes in the film 'Kes' in which a young boy rears a baby kestrel then you will have seen life at "Brim boys".
Some teachers didn't want to be there and made sure we knew it, most kids didn't want to be there and made sure the teachers knew it.
There were some good teachers, and some very bad ones ...
The teachers I can remember are: Headmaster Kelly. Teachers Wood (woodwork), Sharpe (Geography), Clarke (dep head - Maths), Bailey (Tech drawing), Croft (Rural studies), Lane (History) and a miriad of student teachers and temp staff over the years.
I eventually bought myself an education to make up for the wasted years I spent there.
