Nether Edge Grammar School History: A compilation


Nether Edge Grammar School History: A compilation — 3 Comments

  1. Hello,

    I attended N.E.G.S.from 1943 and 1950, the last year of the H.S.C. examination. I am now 82 years old and I am still alive and active. I have often wondered about my former classmates of this era and wonder if others are still alive and what their progression has been since leaving this excellent school.

    Kind regards,


    • Hi Paul – Thanks for your comment. Always happy to make contact with NEGS Old Boys, you would have been two years ahead of me – otherwise our paths would have crossed. Yes one wonders how ones school friends turned out, but contact only seems possible with a few, I hope that you found my account of the old school interesting. Wonder if you have any recollections photos etc to add to the site.

  2. I too was a pupil at this excellent grammar school from 1939 to 1946, moving on to Sheffield University studying architecture qualifying in 1954 and included national service with the Royal Engineers.

    I Well remember so many of the staff shown on the photos, the villains like Len Buchan and the really nice guys like Fred Parsons the Art Master.

    Some of my friends became evacuees, as did I, moving down to Mountsorrel in Leicestershire. Only stayed down there for three months before returning to Sheffield and after the blitz remember going to ‘King Ted’s ‘sharing their school.

    So many more memories.
