Diamond frequently sent us to buy mints. He was cool. Mr. Freeman with the beard I found terrifying and dreaded his classes, no doubt because I hadn't done the work!

Pedant Alert!! It was Mr Dymond not Diamond. He was ok most of the time unless you got him in a bad mood.
The sports teachers were among my faves. Chalmers, Alexander, McClean, Hunt.

Miss Munn and Miss Pinching used to scare me. Mr Diamond was a good shot with chalk and board rubbers. Mr James was rather intimidating. Does anybody remember Mr. Nightingale science teacher. He was about twleve when we were at school. Miss Scott maths was a rather scarey person too. Miss Alexander deputy head at Priory, Mr Beale R.E. Mr Herbert History ?

Mr Voigt was my form tutor and English teacher; he was lovely. But my best memories are of Terry Steele and those brilliant Christmas concerts we used to perform in the chapel, then off around the pubs of Lewes carol singing (or was that drinking cider?)

Tony Freeman was a brilliant teacher - entirely responsible for my A-Level History Grade C. Could be scary if you were messing around but consequently there wasn't much messing around in his lessons!
