I went to Oakham in 1952'first to Junior House (now Chapmans) under Geoff Liebert and then from 1955 to 1959 in School House under John Moore.We lived in Wilmslow and I travelled to and from by train from Manchester. They were happy days and seeing all the photos of Oakham brought back many happy memories of the time I spent at Oakham. Richard Higgs Brisbane Australia.

Not 100% sure if it was 1966 or 67, but I do remember that the castle roof was covered with a tarp for quite some time after lightening hit the castle during a storm.
