  1. I was in Ken Ramsbottams class all through Abbeydale Grammar. In the second photo I am bang in the middle of the middle row, fifth from the left. However, whilst I do think the first photo is 1R, I am struggling to identify myself! I may be third from right, again middle row. I can’t remember many classmates names, however Elliot, Neil Foweather and Kipling come to mind. I remeber in class that the A surnames sat nearest the door, alphabetically in 3 rows of double desks. Other teachers I recall are Pomfret, Swaine, Mr Massey the Head and Deputy ‘Buzz’ Scorer?

    • Hi Daniel

      Did you say you know Neil Foweather?

      Please do let me know.

      He went to matlock College teacher training College in 1973



  2. Hi Paul

    Thanks for your comment – I left Nether Edge before the move to Abbeydale so can’t add anything to your comment. I only visited once to see the old headmaster George Wilkinson. Did have Buzz for physics – I had a lot of time for him – one of the best. Eric
