Just read your message, Stuart Cumberpatch. I used to fancy you something
rotten, but I don't suppose you noticed! I was at Mundella from about 1965
to 68 and recall the same people Stuart does. Anyone know what became of
Anna Cortens? I read German and Russian (influence of the adorable Dr Kusminskas)
at Bristol after that - horrible place, Bristol - then moved to Cardiff
to work in the civil service, which gave me quite a lot of time to write
as well. I also became a trade union activist during the 70s (the enemy
within). I've been married for 23 years (got over you in the end, Stuart)
and have 2 children. I teach creative writing at the University of Glamorgan
now, write poems and novels and waste ages on the Net, especially my web

Hi to everyone who remembers me, this is great a Mundella Website.
Thankyou Annette nee Teasdale. Annette and I have been in constant touch
since we left school.
I attended Mundella from 1959-64. Lots of my cousins did at various
times as well. I'm an another 'Blodge Lab Axelotl Feeder' - Hi Rowena,
please contact me or anyone else who remembers me, and Valerie Snell Hi.
I remember, this ones for Rowena - your very very very straight hair
and the Hills and Dales?
The Haunted Steam Roller, seances, Tilly Townsend and her paisley patterns
(mangos) - yep I got an A at O level even though she said I was useless
at Art, Phillip Shatzburger singing Are You Lonesome Tonight? Dear Mr Hallam
and the Hallelujah Chorus, foggy hockey fields and smelly, horrible showers,
The Tuck Shop Van, the good old blodge lab and The Dripping Tap Treatment,
potted meat cobs and crisp and red raw liver and axelotles, singing all
the songs from 'Summer Holiday', Rowena's smurfs, Iolanthe, lunchtime discos,
snowballs filled with lumps of coke(the coal kind), berets, walking around
Trent Bridge even though it was out-of-bounds, fierce Dolly Onions and
mild Miss Crossley and her readings of Silas Marner - yawn! the History
club and lots and lots more wonderful memories but not the exam kind!
So sorry to have missed the reunion any chance in getting together again,
even if it's a few of us?
I came to London 30 years ago and married a journalist Harvey, who unfortunately
died in 1991, I have two daughters 18 and 20 both thespians. I work as
an ICT Technician in a school, and part-time I work for a choir and a theatre
I will sign off now and hope somebody will contact me love to hear.
It's a shame some people did not enjoy school as much as I did, socially
it was great and I did know I learnt a lot even though I never thought

How wonderful to hear the old school song played again (even if I don't
remember all the words!). I was at Mundella from 1932 to 1935 and well

an Eisteddfod every year.

Had to get in next to John Williams. We spent infants, juniors, and
Mundella sitting next to each other. (I was John's little friend). And
it's easy to remember my forms...2B, 3B, 4B, 5B (B for bottom). There seemed
to be two forms for clever folk, one for the football / hockey team, one
for those who tried but couldn't quite hack it, and one for us!!!
We organised a 20 year reunion in 1986 and it was as if no time had
passed at all. Definitely some bonding went on during 1961 - 66.
Still live in Nottingham, still look out the window if I have to attend
a course in a classroom. Always worked with computers, despite Mrs Andrews
telling us we'd be lucky to be dustbinmen. Big into cycling, motorbikes,
and beer. Not always at the same time.

I attended the school from 1961-1966.I can't remember the forms I was
in[mostly bottom ones!]My nickname was Bonehead!!!
I married Angela Jackson,who was a pupil at the same time.We have been
married for 30 years.
Although I invented the phrase "underachiever" I am very proud of my
old school,and I think there was something about it which made it unique.Esprit
de corps comes to mind!!!
I would love to hear from any of my peers,especially the "rockers"who
went to school on motor-bikes and sneaked into the school disco early to
avoid paying[was it 3d?]

I was there between 1968 and 1975, along with David Boddy and Alan
Coulthard who both told me of this web site at the recent Trent Bridge
test match. Wish I could remember the words to the school song - nostalgia
makes school days seem better than I thought they were at the time, I enjoyed
the informal games of football on the tennis courts during break times,
but I'd rather not have been in school.
I did meet two of the geography teacher's, Keith Davies and Harry Hawkins
some years later when they were at a school in Sutton In Ashfield - but
best of all was seeing "Whack" running along Main Road, Wilford doing a
cross country run when he was in charge of the youth team at Notts County
- he looked completely knackered and was down to almost walking pace. I
also knew Joe Hallam up until he moved over to France.

I was at Mundella from 1968-75 (Forms 1R, 2R, 3V, 4Sc1, 5Sc1, 6LA and

"Fangy" Jackson (Physics teacher) Roy "Spike" Nettleship a wonderful character
who taught Maths, "Dot" McLeod (English), Trevor Lightbown (History), Mr.
Jacobs (who could put the fear of God into you!) and "Noddy" Hoard (the
Pupils I recall were "Dick" Szall (a crazy Polish lad), Steve "Olly"

Came back for a brief visit today. Sorry to hear that some others did
not have the fantastic schooldays my pals and I enjoyed between 1959-65.
For those with a vivid imagination this Fothergill Watson? building was
an architectural treasure. Demolition was a criminal act! Though the same
could not be said for the prefab blocks were we studied art with 'Tilly'
Townson. The teachers were variously gems or stern authoritarians, depending
on your viewpoint, aptitude, attitude and behaviour, but if you pulled
your weight all was right with the world. Like many others before and after
me, Barton Hart helped me develop a love of all music, especially the classics.
Mrs Houseman encouraged my love of literature and writing, correctly predicting
that I would develop my writing in later life.
Encouragement, belief in the possible - some of the key characteristics
of our teachers then, although I'm sure few of us realised at the time.
Having to speak French from the moment our erstwhile head Mr Moody entered
the room to take French has, I believe, done little harm. I still lapse
into French when not concentrating. Any other memories from 1959-1965?

Fabulous! Found the site today thanks to my old Mundellan pal and best-selling
childrens' author Rowena Edlin-White. No time to study other contributions
and site - will do for homework.
If anyone knows whereabouts of Ann Sharp, Madelaine Folkett and others
from 1959-65 - please get in touch.
Has anyone a full school photograph from any year between 1959-1965
- my era?
I still have my copies of the school magazine which could be scanned
and e-mailed if this is of interest to anyone. One features some of Rowena's
earliest work - does anyone remember CAT?
One of my companies is very active in rich media and interactive virtual
and visual web technology development and I hope we may contribute something
worthwhile to the site at some point.
By the way, is the scool anthem supposed to ring out when we enter -
only I heard nothing.
Keep up the contributions everyone.

Brilliant! A Mundellan website! I was at Mundella 1959-1964 - hi, Annette!
I was one of the 'blodge lab' axelotl-feeders too! I went to Mundella because
my Dad and several aunts had been there before me, but alas, I didn't shine
as they did. Several teachers were still there who taught them: Barton
Hart, Mr Holbrook, Doris Barlow and Dolly Onions (we used to sing a rhyme
about her which finished, "...her face like a squashed tomato, her legs
like tree trunks." Poor dear.
I was in Jo Hallam's choir and school productions: 'The White Sheep
of the Family' and 'Iolanthe' - the only fairy whose hair wouldn't curl...
I was in detention almost every night because I was always late for
school - it became a joke with the prefects. I left ignominiously at 16
for a drama course at Clarendon from where via the public libraries I went
to Drama School in 1968 and into the theatre and TV for 15 years (greatest
claim to fame working as a fire eater's assistant and appearing as a baby-snatcher
Now I write books, am a Lay reader in the Church of England and am
studying for a Ph.D at Nottm Uni. Married to Rob who trains computer programmers,
no kids. I see Steve Wright (aka Stephen Lowe) occasionally, and Val Dwyer
A few years ago I attended a reunion at the Albert Hall. Glyn Lowth
was there and Baz Harwood but not many others from my era. They auctioned
off all these badges that had been lying around somewhere - we bought badges
for the things we were useless at and I got to be a Prefect!
Can't believe how many of you have gone to Canada and US I'm following
for a short time this year as I have a Fellowship in Children's Lit at
University of New Brunswick. Love to hear from any who remember me...

girls are generally more difficult simply because of a change of surname.

I attended Mundella from 1959 to 1964 and was thrilled to find this
website, as it brought back many fond memories of my time there. I remember
in particular Kathleen Backen, Ann Kirk, Rowena White, Marion Powell, Susan
Ward, Elaine Stainsby and Marilyn Torz, with whom I have remained in touch.
We looked after the fish in the "blodge" lab, feeding and cleaning
them out at lunchtimes. The two axolotls were lovingly hand-fed by us,
with strips of raw liver which we collected each day from the local butcher.
The perk of this duty was that we could spend the whole of the lunch-break
in the warmth of the "blodge" lab, instead of being out in the cold quad.
I was fascinated by Miss (Dolly) Onions plaited bun hairdo, it never
moved once in my five years there, and Miss Winfield, who used to bring
her tabby cat to school on her shoulder! I remember Mr Hunt's great history
lessons, Mr Martin, Mr Seabrook, Mr Mitchell, Miss Crossley,Mr Hallam,
Mr Howe, and "Tilly" Townsend' whose geography lessons I dreaded.Mrs Houseman,
bless her, who kept me in an endless supply of (out of date) second-hand
uniforms (my embarrassment at the "F" for free on my dinner tickets!)
I remember the smell of rows of wet maroon gaberdine macs (with secret
pockets) in the cloakrooms on rainy days, oblong chunks of pink carbolic
soap on the old washroom sinks, and the ancient ascot heaters. The arrival
of the new communal showers horrified us girls,(especially the late developers!)
I made no major impact on Mundella school, my two crimes being the
threat of the cane from Mr Moody, for eating ice-cream in the street, and
a detention for walking home without wearing my beret.The prefects hid
in shop doorways on route to the bus stop, if I remember correctly.Ah,
I left Nottingham in 1969, to marry a Londoner.I now live in south
east London and we have two daughters. It would be great to hear from anyone
who remembers me, I don't visit Nottingham very much these days but I keep
in touch with my family there.
All the best with the website, I hope it goes from strength to strength.......GO

A virtual Mundella! Fantastic! Hooks to hang our pasts on, codes to
unlock those misty memories, names to conjure with! I was there from 1961
to 1968 and percolated gently up through Forms 1D, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X*, 6LA
and 6UA. In ’68 I was Boys’ Vice-Captain (sic!) and recipient of the War
Memorial Prize, which was presented to me on Speech Day in the Albert Hall
by some grey municipal dignitary, I think. The red and cream bookplate
(“Lest we forget”) still proudly adorns the front endpaper of my copy of
J. V. Stalin’s “Problems of Leninism”… Ah, the follies of youth.

Paul Pearson; Suzanne Perkins; Victoria Prus; Sheenagh Pugh; Andrew Roughton;
Helen Scholey; Richard Shipley, Graham Slack; Stephanie Smallwood (whom
I subsequently married, and eventually divorced!); Audrey Spalton; Janice

With apologies for errors and omissions! I also have lists of suspects

Mundella’s French and German teachers must have done a good job: I
went on to do a degree in French (Reading & Université de Paris
VIII Vincennes) and have been a translator and interpreter ever since.
The school’s execrable collection of musical instruments also meant that
I was to play one chord on an acoustic guitar for approx. 3 minutes during
a music lesson, sometime in 1963 I think, so I naturally became a blues

Congratulations on your web-site but your Guest Book would be even
more interesting to me if only one of my contemporaries called. As my term
was 1930-36 it is most unlikely what with our ages …. and the war! I will
not name the teachers of that era as I see that the names of only two of
them have appeared in your book, Barton Hart and Holbrook and your readers
would not recognise the rest, from the Head, R.B. Wight through to "Ma"
Mosley et al. After 6 years as a RAF Navigator I returned to Nottingham
and took up Town Planning there, and elsewhere, in both public and private
sectors. I last visited the old school in about 1985, I suppose it was,to

Good to get linked to Mundellans of old. I attended from 1974 - 79
at the end of one of the many Mundella eras - the time when it went from
Grammar to Comprehensive (1976)and a lot of the old traditions started
to wane. I think this change heralded the demise of the school as it became
just another school.
Look forward to hearing more of the old place.

the sixth form, leaving to go into the building trade. That didn't last
long and I soon found myself working in the computer industry. I'm now
an analyst/programmer at Torbay Council, Devon, UK.

I left ye olde school in 1954. I worked for a couple of years before
marrying and coming to USA. I have lived in Northern California since 1962.
My maiden name was Roebuck and I was in Welbeck. As I recall I wasted
a lot of my time instead of taking advantage of what I now realize was
an excellent education. But some of it must have stuck because I have never
had any problem getting a good job!
I don't remember a lot of the people I went to school with, but I remember
the brothers Colin & Brian Bayles because they lived nearby. I remember
Pamela Clegg, Shirley Simpson we sang in Barton Hart's choir every year.
I still sing Messiah every year before the christmas season. The handsome
lads that I remember were Tony Miller & John Blankenship....
My only contact left in Nottingham is also an old Nottingham Girls
High School alumni, she was Pat Disney, now Constable.

Lived in Lenton area and attended the place from 1958 to 1963. Moved
to Vancouver, Canada in 1975 and haved lived here since then. Having spent
30 years in Information Technology, I now have an independent consulting
company in partnership with my wife, Ann (nee Edwards) who attended Nottingham
Girls High School 1961-1966. I visit Notingham occasionally and do try
to keep in touch with old school friends. Good luck with your web page,
it is overdue. There are caches of Old M's from Australia and USA who communicate
on the 'net but I have found very few from the UK.
