How weird. My dad was talking about his school days at Ringmer today.You old gits are the same age as my old man. He told me to put 'get a grip' to see if any one could remember what teacher said that a lot.
I went to school once. Didn't like it, too many kids.

Just missed you female priory student, left in 1974, but two younger brothers would have been there. Miss Middlemiss was there then, so she must have been about 12 when she started teaching. Other PE teachers were the scary Miss Pinches and her sidekick. Anyone remember her name?

It was Miss Pinching and Miss Munn, they were scarey. Your certainly right about Miss Middlemiss she hasn't changed a bit. Still see Miss Danielle around from time to time. Mr Manktalow lives in the house behind mine and his kids are younger than mine!!!! Mr Voight, Knight and Bannerman all still live local. Does anyone remember Mr Sykes and his barn dances, great fun.

Mr Sherman Zola....the mad physics teacher. I used to see him in Tesco until a few years ago.
Not sure if these were there when you were at Ringmer....Mr Errity (chemistry) Mrs Gates (PE) Mr Enters (English) Mr Fitzgerald (woodwork), Mr Benians (design) Miss Flynn (History), Mrs Osborne (cookery) Mr Babb (deputy head)
I'm sure they'll be a few more. Mr Fairhurst was superb and still does a bit of work at the school. He taught me to play the drums and put me in the schools new "Jazz band"....what a geezer.

A few more my old man remembers you old retirement waiting for god'ers. Miss Hunt the explosive maths teacher. Mr Burgess the PE teacher, Mr Marsh the Poofter English teacher. My Byers for geography. He can't remember the chick that taught biology but says she was fairly fit and the old bloke that did gardening past the USA? where you could smoke. (sounds like my kind of teacher)

The Biology teacher was Mrs Thompson - a very good teacher. And it was Mr Hosker not Hoskins - he was my maths teacher in the huts. MR - I haven't heard "Booner" for a long time! What about "Daktari" - Mr Turner in the Library in his safari suits and Mr Armstrong (legweak) taught metal work when I was there. There was also a PE teacher called Mr Tyrel. Seeing all these names brings back great memories.

There was a Mr Hosker....bald, fat red faced bloke who was always playing pocket billiards...taught maths and Me Hoskins, tall northern bloke who also taught maths and was a decent teacher. he was my form tutor in 1981/82 (5H)
Daktari died several years ago...he was ok really and Mr Tyrell was a decent bloke too....took over from Mr Matthews.
Armstrong was horrible...along with the other two Mr Page and Mr Bennians (Bunians !!!) He's only just left the school and i met him when my step daughters were at ringmer a few years ago....the conversation went
"oh hello lovey" (in that camp voice of his)
"ahhh, mr Armstrong....do you know you made my life hell 20 years ago" as he stood there look at me with a rather petrified look on his face (i'm 6' tall and 18 stone)
We had a laugh about it and agreed that being a teacher in the 70's couldn't have been much fun !!!

Hosker i knew that it was not hoskins, just testing whistle whistle do de do do do!!!!!! Remember reports of someone smoking in the PE block for which us kids got a right royal B**locking for, turns out it was mr tyrell. Mr armstrong now there was a stern b'stard, still not as evil as mr presnell. Not forgetting Big bad John whakely. Mr turner scared the bejesus out of us in the first year when he was the library bloke.
