New Parks Boys School - a Memory of New Parks.
I attended this school from 1962 to 1965 and overall it was not a bad experience the head there at the time was Reg Payne and the deputy heads name was Jones. I don't of course recall all the teachers but here are a few; T C Jones (PE/Maths), Mr King (Art), Mr Williams (PE) and Mr Flude (Art - I seem to recall he played saxaphone). There was also an amazing form master in my third year, a welsh guy called Morgan who would whack your arse with a huge gym shoe if you missbehaved but never without cause or with malice .. Some of my fellow pupils I recall are; Mick Glover (best pal for years), Steve Gaskin (his dad was caretaker of the flats on Aikman Avenue), Geoff Blockley (went on to be a footballer methinks), Swee Connely, Dougie Cross who I am still in contact with, Stephen Desjardin and many many more. I lived at the time at Keightley Road No.59 just a few doors down from Cleavers the butcher with the neighbours Townsend /Freeman on each side. No really bad memories & it would be nice to hear from any old aquaintances .
