Hi, anyone from 5X, or anyone else who knew me in the good old days. Potted history of me after leaving school in 1966 I worked for the Civil Service, got married in 1969, left work in 1972 to have my first child, had my second child in 1973, moved to Leighton Buzzard in 1974 and then to Milton Keynes in 1980 something or other. Eventually got divorced, moved to a small village near Buckingham, married again and now have two grandchildren. (Does anyone else feel old?)
I was sad to learn that I had missed a reunion hope theres another before too long!
By the way, Stuart Cumberpatch, why are you taking over this website??
I am still in touch with Suzanne Perkins (now McGuire) and would love to hear from anyone else!!

I attended Mundella from 1957 to 1962. I would like to hear from Susan Fox, Diana & Pamela Frost (last heard of in Perth Australia) Jane Litchfield, Philippa & Eleanor Swingler, Kay Smith, David Brasher, Richard Wak Walker and anyone else who knew me.
I particularly remember the dance lessons where we girls wore short colourful tunics, heating milk for coffee in the 6th form, and writing that long long poem about Forest winning the Cup (yes Sandra Lawton and Derek Jones, you were in on it too) Lots lots more, perhaps we should write a book.

I was in the same class as Colin Hudson (I remember those baggy trousers were dead trendy at the time -how did we manage to play football in them and with platform shoes), Carrie Spowage, Anthony Sandon (Sam) Jeff Arden and Kevin Cook to name just a few
All other years seem to hold a reunion in some pub (great location) and perhaps we should do the same

Regarding the Chat room thing, I've been there several times, but no ones there ever. It's not prominently marked on the intro page either. People with low bandwidth, or short on time may not make the connection with "common Room" as well.

What about a bulletin board of some kind? It would be a lot easier to follow threads from former class mates than trawling/searching through the guest book.

This is NOT a criticsm, I think you've done a wonderful job in re-uniting so many former friends. But you did invite comments ;-)

This is an update to a previous entry. I was an old Mundellan from 1964 to 1969. I visited the site back in February and my daughter kindly provided her e-mail address. I now have my own e-mail address.

Firstly, thanks to Phil Holland and Tony Court for their replies to my initial message. Also John ? who did not remember me but hoped I might be able to assist with names for a photo he had. If you would like to send the photo to the new e-mail address I will do my best to help.

Tom Dignum....yes you!... I do recall your name as being a pal of Steve Shaw and Rod Brown. You probably do not remember me but at least you know someone does recall your name!

Gillian Breffitt - Is also another name I recall. We were in the same year and have lots of people in common.

I can't say that I always enjoyed my years at Mundella but it's amazing what rose tinted glasses can do for you!!

I was in 1s & 2s and went on to 3a2 up to 5a2. I remember the Friday lunch time discos. I used to take my much loved 45's (with my name and class number on of course - I still have them, still with the lables attached!). This was the highlight of the week and made up for the last lesson being double Maths on a Fiday.

I'd love to hear from anyone who remembers me or from anyone from years 1964 to 1969 .

Stumbled across this site as a result of my Wife looking up her old school - what a great site.
Some real memory shakers and from this distance (in time) the experience seems all the better.
Kev & Jo Cook, Chris Holt, Tony Osbourne and many other names triggerd a few memories.
In general life's been good so far with only the odd cruel - If anybody does remember the 9st Weakling with long hair and BIG trousers I'm now a 12st Weakling with less hair and a beer belly - ain't Guiness Wonderful!
It'd be great to hear from anybody out there who does remember me

School years 1956 - 1963

Just found this site and on my first visit was pleased to find someone out there looking for me! Sandra Stones of Lenton Abbey Estate now Sandy White of Ohio, USA. Of the people you name Sandra I have an e mail address for Wendy Flinders which I will send to you. I too have been trying to trace Susan Hearson and would love to hear from her. Ive not had time to peruse the whole site yet but was pleased to see Wendy Flinders and myself sitting in front of Miss Onions on the staff photo of 1957. Is the Charles Stevenson in the biology lab the same Charlie who was a friend of my brother Trevor Lamb who was in form 2T in 1956. Another brother of mine, Derek Lamb went to Mumdella for five years from 1947 - someone may remember all or some of us.
Like Sandra I hope to find some pupils who went to the school from 1956 - I will look further!

We are having another get-together this Saturday - YES THIS SATURDAY!!! 23 JUNE 2001

Meet between 7.30pm and 8.00pm at Via Fossa, Canal Street, Nottingham.

Have been in touch with quite a few people by phone, and will continue with my phone around, but just in case I don't catch everyone - would love to see as many as possible there. What could be better than sitting by the water on a warm summer evening, with a drink in hand and talking with people who you've not seen for 24 years!!!

Anyone who was at Mundella from 1972 to 1977 - please join us - teachers too! We would love to know what everyone is doing!

Hello Martin!

I do remember you, and many of the incidents you mention, tho' you may not remember me (I was the pathologically shy class swot). I have to say I wasn't sorry to leave Mundella, and I'm relieved to add that schooldays weren't the happiest of my life -- things have improved greatly since!

But let's hear it for Pat Luker, a teacher who treated her pupils like intelligent adults, and whom I haven't seen mentioned here, and Joe Hallam and the school choir for nurturing a lifelong love of classical music and singing with others.

Funnily enough, after a degree in politics and seven years as an archaeologist, I too became a computer programmer (I think it's the career of last resort when you can't decide what else to do). I now live in the south of France (so all those years being top of the class in French did mean something), and develop websites for a living.

I've been away from Nottingham for so long, I'd almost forgotten about the old school, but Steve Adcock's email invitation to this year's reunion (good detective work, Steve) has brought it all back - Gillian Hunt in those mini-skirts she used to wear (I had a major crush on her for a while - and so did my father!); being slippered by Mr Walker for talking when I shouldn't; Mr Taylor's pipe in French classes (he was the only Englishman I've ever met who had a French accent); Jake (Mr Jacobs) reading Chaucer in the original; 'Noddy' Hoard's idiosyncratic delivery; Mr Stober (I think it was) on the stage declaiming the lyrics to 'All Shook Up' as if it were Shakespeare; standing in assembly with a leaking water-pistol in each blazer pocket while Mr Moody went on about how this heinous craze had to stop; and of course, 'Running Waters'. And surprise, surprise, what did I find when I went searching through my old rubbish, but this:

"Copy this out in your best handwriting four times:

The water, from its prolonged agitation is beaten, not into mere creaming foam but into masses of accumulated yeast, which hang in ropes and wreaths from wave to wave, and, where one curls over to break, form a festoon like a drapery from its edge; these are taken up by the wind, not in dissipating dust, but bodily, in writhing, hanging, coiling masses, which make the air white and thick as with snow, only the flakes are a foot or two long each; the surges themselves are full of foam in their very bodies, underneath, making them white all through, as the water is under a great cataract; and their masses, being thus half water and half air, are torn to pieces by the wind whenever they rise, and carried away in roaring smoke, which chokes and strangles the actual water."

I never thought that thirty years later I'd find myself copying it out once more (though it's much easier with a PC!). Anyone know where it's taken from? One of Cecil Roberts' books, perhaps?

After leaving I joined the Civil Service, but having got bored with that, I quit after a few years and worked as Press Officer and Tour Manager for a struggling prog rock band (The Enid - anyone remember them?), before becoming a computer programmer. I now live in Southend-on-Sea, in Essex, and I'm System Manager for an insurance company.

Look forward to seeing you all on October 6th.

I was delighted and amazed to find this web site. Having left Nottingham in 1966 I was always envious of people I knew telling me of old school friends they had bumped into. I have now spent hours (too many) going through this site searching for my old school buddies. Those that spring to mind immediately are:
Susan Hearson
Margaret Cooksley
Wendy Flinders
Margaret Lamb
Sandra Flint
Peter Collington (used to do my Chemistry homework for me!) (how I loved him!)

Susan Hearson was my closest and dearest friend and I often wonder what happened to her.

I am now living in Ohio, U.S.A. (who would have thought my life would bring me this far). I moved to South Devon in the late 70s and on my "50th" birthday (ouch) I met someone else celebrating her 50th birthday. We chatted (as one does) and we soon realised that we were in form 1M together in 1956 - just how small can the world get? Our husbands were soon left in an air of wonderment as we exchanged memories of those far gone days. Her name is now Alyce Stephens - are you out there Alyce?
Having read a lot of entries on this site one name crops up again and again - that of Barton Hart. What a character - boiled eggs on the bunson burner - too bizarre to be true. I very proudly remember singing with the school choir at Loughborough Cathedral the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah. Whatever happened to the voice I had then?!
I am now married with two children, two step-children, three grandchildren and one step-grandchild and would just love to hear from anyone who was at good old Monkeydella during those years. I could go on and on as the memories come flooding back but will desist for fear of boring everyone. So come on class of 1956 - where are you?

Great website, was going to get one written myself, but someone beat me to it! I thought the net was for young people - seems lots of the guest book is for people who were at the school ages ago! Hope I'm proved wrong.

I was at Mundella between 1975-80. I was in the first fully comprehensive intake year, with an empty year just above us. My great ambition then, was to be a vet or a rock star. I'm now a computer consultant in the City. Sigh.

Would be great to hear from any fellow musicians from our schooldays. Classmates were: Susan Yeomans, Donna Williams, Elizabeth Bugby, Sarah Matthews, Janet, Eddie Mighten, Dean Jackson, Neil (Nelly), Tommy Hutchinson, 2 Anns, a Catherine, Tobassum, Fiona Wallis (who lives near me in Essex), Edna Leeshue, Yvette Downer, Sherry, 2 Marks in the year below us....
Teachers: Keith Davis, (Geronimo, honorary member of the Mundella Mafio, for which I got chucked out of maths Thank-you Sir), Mr Nettleship, Marie-Anne Antonouris, Barbara Windsor, (not the one off the telly, silly), Keith Sudbury, Mick Walker the-girls-hero...that German teacher with the triangular sideburns, who I think now teaches my neices in Arnold.......
Best memories: French trips to Paris and La Phaisanderie, can't remember where.
Worst Memory: Singing on stage at a concert to a full school hall and the microphone sliding to the floor. Breaking out in a cold sweat at the memory.

Thanks

Hi everyone, I was at Mundella from 1951-1954. The first group of 13+ students to complete the 5 year course in 4 years. I have many happy memories of the cultural exposure I received at Mundella; one of many was singing in the performance of Handel's Messiah under the direction of Mr Barton Hart.
After emigrating to Australia in 1967 I engaged in tertiary, and postgrad. education in Melbourne and pursued a career in teaching and counselling until my retirement 3 years ago.
I have 2 daughters and 5 grandchildren.
I have maintained contact with my dear friend Marian Naylor (nee Chester) over the years and it was through her that I learned of this web page. What a thrill to engage my history in this way.
I would love to hear from others who were at the school at the same time. My class photo with Miss Tweed and Mr Calder (submitted for publication) conjures up some familiar faces and memories as does the photo of the girls' sport (tennis) class.
I plan to be in Paris in September for a World Congress and then to travel in France. Wow! It would be good to revisit some old memories. Ellen

have been married for 13 years and have 3 great sons. Opened a hair, beaty and tanning salon with my husband about 9 years ago. Still in touch with Gina Dimarino and my best mate is Julie Brandreth. Had lots of fun at Monkeydella but especially with Lee Thornhill, Julieanne Harlow, Charlotte, Georgia Weston, Sara Payne. I remember speech day at the albert hall, messing about in the paddling pool on the embankment at lunchtime, writing letters for some lads who were playing truant from Roland Green. How we hated those girls coming from clifton hall just as we were beginning to find lads interesting ! Teachers i remember most were Cynthia Savage (french) Mr Hallett. Mr Rowarth, Mr Baggott (what was all the fuss about learning log tables for ? i still don't get it. Mr Walker (Maths and P.E.) Mrs Windsor (girls p.e. teacher) Barbara Bell (history) she always told me off because my summer uniform dress was too low cut - was it ? What happened to you all from 1P, 2P, 3P?, 4R and 5R - Johnathon, Simon, Mark Ashley, Dave Raynor, Julieanne, Charlotte, Georgia, Lee, Kamy and Spangy (Kanwarjit Baryar and Ravinder Soar), Neil Pike ? I went on to Forest Fields 6th form with Julie and Karolyn and Gina - can't remember who else. As for logarithms - I was not shocked to find out I had failed my maths 'o' level. I don't suppose Mr Walker or Mr Baggot were either.. Maurice Taylor was a bit scary but I did ok in French. Are we really all coming up to the big four O ??
Love to hear from anyone or if there's ever a reunion - Julie seems to think we just missed one.

Bye for now

Linda
Will check site again to see if I recognise anyone else and will tell Gina about it.

Is was at Monkeydella from 74-79. And as I've mentioned

impossible to orgasm and wee at the same time...phew,

I've now moved out to Boston in the US and would love

from 76-81 a life time ago. I've been out of Nottingham and in the North East for nearly 18 years now and my memories are few. I remember being very naive, as Ann Donnelly once asked me to feel her heart beat pointing to her left breast and I said like a fool, "no, no it's best to take your pulse at your wrist"! A time machine and things would have been slightly different! Catherine Adams is the only one in my class to have written anything. I think in 5 years we never said more than a few words together; you were very quiet Catherine! Did Bucket ever make a million, pinhead ever play professional football, Ian Gillott ever make it onto Top of the Pops, did Scotney ever get a shag? I suppose most of the teachers are either dead or doubly incontinent by now (no change then). Even young Sudbury must be nearing retirement by now.I think I'll bookmark this page and look in from time to time to see if anyone else I know writes in. I only heard of it by chance from my youger brother.

I have just been browsing the messages and was struck by the few from my time (1949 - 1955). The only names I spotted were Janice Payne, Barbara Hebditch and David Emmony. When I think how many made the trip from Jesse Boot Junior School (said Janice and Barbara were from there) It's a shame that there are not more.

Throwing in a few names from my year Dave Harper, Dave Parker, John Furness John Russell, ? Leader, Brian Cumberland, Alan Smith, Eric Lamb, Mick Miller, Alistair Stead, Jean Mills etc etc.
I have very happy memories and went on to the world of textiles. My claim to fame is that I'm the guy who put "Lycra" into tights and stockings. (It took about 14 years, but I understand was worth it!!).
All the best to all
Feel free to E-mail me here in deepest Leicestershire.

I never thought I would be so proud to be an "Old Mundellan". Great to see everyones comments.
What stands out most in my mind? - Barton Hart preparing us for our performances at our Speech Days at the Albert Hall - Miss Waters teaching us how to play tennis,netball, hockey - Mrs Lyons (Domestic Science), instead of cookery one day we learnt about the birds and the bees. Dolly Onions, Miss Crossley, Mr Gibbs, Mr Mantle, Mrs Bates to name a few. Thought I would give school dinners a mention. Very reasonable I thought except for the beef stew which never failed to stay glued to the bottom of the tureen even when turned upside down. I think we had about 1 1/2 hours at lunch time - can anyone remember our Goose Fair jaunts? How we managed to catch a 43 trolley bus to Hyson Green, spend time on two or three rides, have a snack and then get back to school in time for the p.m. session, beats me. My favourite memory is the trip to Lake Lucerne and Rome, Easter l959. We all had a terrific time especially when the wine flowed. We saw Mr Gibbs and Miss Waters in a different light after that! Names that come to mind during my five years are
June Dawson, Barbara Kemp, Christine Ormond, Teresa Lindsey, Sandra Whitehouse, Valerie Tatton, Pamela Brown, Elsie Sole, Malcolm Curtis, Peter Stowe. I have already been in touch with Gillian Marriott and Phil Dacre through this site and have met up with Sandra Lomax and Glenys Offiler. Keep writing everyone - it makes great reading.

As a postscript to the message I left earlier today
I said Mr Robson was the best french teacher I
ever had, that should read Mr Robinson ( I think I
must of watched too much Grange Hill at an
impressionable age )
Having read through many of the messages after
submitting my first effort, I realised that the only
way I distinguished myself at school was that I was
a skinny girl who always had wet hair in the
morning and smelt strongly of clorine (being a
swimmer)
My only other claim to fame is that I'm married to
the man who knocked Mundella down.....he didn't
actually drive the wrecking ball (or whatever they
call it ) but he's the architect that designed the
housing that is now on that site. I have no excuses,
he looked like a nice man when I met him. Please
address any abusive mail to him and not me as it
wasn't my fault.

I'm interested in contacting anyone who went to
Clifton Hall Girls Grammar 1974-76 and then
moved over to Mundella 1976-1979. I have lots of
great memories (especially of the lunchtime
discos in the cellars at Clifton Hall), that lovely
teacher who had one green eye and one blue eye
and who broke the hearts of hundreds of girls
when he left to teach elsewhere, and hanging off
the back of the bus going home to sunny Dunkirk.
Mundella was a bit of a shock for us softies from
Clifton Hall but I remember Mr Robson well, the
best french teacher I ever had.
What happened to the likes of Jonathon,Justin and
Julian and Garfield Drummond the scariest person
I ever met, someone told me he was a doctor. I
think there were only 4 boys in our class of 29.
Some names I remember Linda Hallam, Jackie
Dawes, Deborah Dewick, Jill Cole, Julie Hughes,
Katie Kraik, Louise Piggott and someone I met
again recently Lisa Morely.
I did get married, but didn't change my name, I
have three children Ciaran 7, Sian 5, and Finn 2.
For my sins I became a teacher...... and now have
a job share in an infant school in Nottingham.
Love to get in contact with anyone who is
interested.

1972 - 1977 - I've been looking through this site since before Christmas and have been amazed at the response from around the world. I was sorry to have missed the last reunion organised by my old mate from primary school, Jane Soos. I see my sister's (Barbara Jarvis) got her name on the honours board but not yet left a message !!!! Thanks for the mention from Jeremy Hayes who I fondly remember as Jez and for the omission by Ricky Sandford - how dare you ! What a blast from the past to see Glen Oakes remembers me and Hi to Julie Fox.

I keep in touch with Paddy through work and have seen Chris Hancock doing the domestics of pushing a trolley round Tesco (who'd have thought it in 1977). Have seen Martyn Offord at Bilborough College on parents night with my daughter Fiona, will speak to him next time.

I have two daughters, Fiona, almost 17 and Holly, 14. I'm about to take the plunge again, getting married in September, not too far from school, at Trent Bridge cricket ground.

Here's a quick list of some names off the top of my head, apologies to those missed, nothing personal :-

Tina Shaw, Sharon Monteith, Jane Soos, Christine Dale, Janie Hillary (where are you now?), Roopinda Singh, Julie from Clifton Hall)... getting foggy with surnames now, Marisa Luongo, Wendy Smith, Gillian, Paula (Willow Farm), Helen Mills, Paul Garton, Foss (sorry I missed you at the reunion Foss), Andy Lam, Stu Bradley, Adrian Hart (Queens Scout), Cosimo Basile, Pauline and brother Katie, Wilf (huge crush on him) and how can I ever foget Mick Brown, which reminds me, oh yes, Carol Stretton! Hi.

Will visit site later for updates etc. Barbara, get writing. See you soon. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

One of the events that sticks in my mind is when we organised a miming competition (I guess that would be 1972) and ended up with 3 Gilbert O'Sullivans on stage at once.

I've 'lurked' around the site for a few months but as I've seen no names from my era - there's probably little chance of inducing nausea with recollections of my name. I attended the institution from 1955 to 1962 and moved forward by age rather than performance from 1S to 6US. This took me from Townsend to Daykin. En route I suffered the sadism of Jimmy Hill (what I've I wished him over the years !), the humanity of Rab Calder, the snuff dust of Barton Hart, the inspiration of Ken Reynolds (for chemistry & flying) and adolescent obesity from that confounded NCS bakery cart at morning break. I also carried a determination to one day own a Panther motorcycle, having been impressed with the might of Mr Barlow's combination ! It took 20 years to achieve that.
As fellow pupils gave us unwelcome nicknames, so were cruel names assigned to teachers.
It would be unkind to include their surnames, but the cognoscenti will recognise; Bullfrog, Fat Nora, Pinhead, Brutus, Podges, Batty and of course, Tilly.
'can't say I've fond memories - but that's down to me, not the school. Life improved a little in 'the sixth' but us also-rans were always in the shadow of the big achievers, for whom we bore surprisingly, relatively little malice. Roger Samuel Swift was one such. Top in sports, top in exams, drooled over by the girls and a prefect to boot. More amusing recollections include the arrival of RR "Land Rover" Stephens who incensed the school and local press by banning soccer. David Pleat was one now forced to play rugby and in a match, the elastic in his soccer shorts snapped whilst in full flight down the wing.
The ATC was by contrast a great experience. Under Flying Officer Ken Reynolds we went off to our annual RAF camp. He pressed two other teachers into service - Mr Hawksworth and a French teacher who had been a commissioned Army officer - he could dismantle and re-assemble our bren in a flash.
The occasional and disastrous dances held in the upper hall were the only embarrassments of the ATC.

Quite why I've retained so many yellowed photographs of the period isn't clear, but webmaster permitting, you may soon see some of the ATC gang, some from the Evening Post, Evening News and even the long dead Guardian Journal. Oh yes - and some others I took of the school and its environs on a pilgrimage from here in Surrey, I made before demolition. Pilgrimage ? - perhaps I didn't think so badly of the place after all.

Thought I made more of an impression than that!! or Yvonne Austin especially Jeffrey Arden, he must remember her after she tried to strangle him and knocked him flying over 2 desks when we were in 4A1.

I have been married to Jeff Warren for 22 years and have a son 21 and at Sheffield Hallam Uni and a daughter 19 who likes to travel and spends Summers in Cyprus working.

After reading so many letters from old friends and
even finding a few in my hometown of Adelaide, I began to recollect some very arbitrary memories.
The tattered and moth eaten blackout curtains in the
lower floor classrooms. The rush to sit next to the
hot pipes in winter. The need for some of the girls to
purse the boys in maroon and pale blue from Beckett.
The carvings on the insides of school desks which often
made me sit and dream of the passing parade which had
gone before me. Remembering Daddy Daykin instilling
in me the "parsing of a sentance" which I couldn't do
now - but would normally know whether grammar was
correct or not. And who was that red headed Latin
Teacher with the vitriolic temper in 1953?
Mr. Gregory burning his arm in an explosion. Pop Calder
(bless him) teaching me to ice skate.
And of course some tall curly haired sixth former who
taught me how to play chess.
But that was all in 1953 - and now it's time to get
back to 2001. Looking forward to July and catching up
with anyone who remembers me.

1972 to 1977

It was great to be at the reunion on Saturday 31 March. As Foss says, some looked older, a few looked wiser (not many though!!!) and Foss looked exactly the same as he did on his last day as school!! It was great to see old friends, to remember great times. Andy Hood, Adrian Hart, Tim Peck (why do they call you Paddy?!?), Jamie Scarrot (thank you for being there when I arrived!!) Pete Penfold (remember our walks home after school?!?), Chris Hancock, Foss (you're brill, really enjoyed meeting you again!), Helen Mills, Shelly Lamb, Julie Fox, Jane Soos, Karen Chester, Dawn Morgan (we girls hadn't changed as much as the blokes though, eh?!) Mrs Cliff and Mr Nettleship (Spike) turned up too.

As I sat there I realised I was surrounded by grown-ups, and I had become one too. That was a bit of a shock!

Never mind waiting for another reunion next year, I think we should all keep in touch. Our e-mail addresses are all displayed here, get in touch!

Absolutely great to read everyone's comments. How I miss the old school. I can quite honestly say Mundella was the happiest time of my teaching career. Great kids who I am sure have all turned into great adults. I still see alot of the old pupils around the football scene and really enjoy having a laugh and a pint with them. As far as staff go the news I have is as follows :
I am currently manager of Hucknall Town where we have 18 Academy students who I look after 3 days a week and combine with a few days supply teaching. All ex Mundellans welcome at a discount rate!!!
Mick Walker is now Housemaster at Leeds United's Academy
Leo Beaumont is Head of Learning Support at Forest School (where I also work on Wednesdays and Fridays)and as Tracy so correctly pointed out we can be found most nights (but especially Fridays) in the VAT and Fiddle between 4 and 8. Come and join us for a pint or two. Greg Jackson does on a regular basis.
Keith Sudbury is now Head at Newark High School.
Jenny Carter is some big shot in the City education service.
Last saw George Rowarth at Arnold Town Football Club where he is a vice president - looked well and had a great chat about the old days.
Andy Esslemont is Head of Languages at a school in Morcambe. I will see him this weekend as we play Lancaster City and he always comes along to watch when we are up there.
Many more will I am sure have retired. If I hear anything else I will post it on the website.
Sorry to have missed the reunion but please inform me if there are any more as I would love to see you all again. Perhaps Paul Dilks could demonstrate how to get up ones own a***. As I remember he wasn't that good at gymnastics!! How is his brother Gary? Anyone know?
I still see Mark Pennant regularly - great lad, good footballer.
Anyway must go. Reading all your comments has made me really nostalgic.
Be good.

Hello to all you other nostalgic Mundellans out there. I attended between 1969 and 1974 and to be honest couldn't wait to leave. I just sort of lost interest about half way through when I discoved playing in bands was a good way to earn a living, and it mean I would probably never need to speak Latin. Since gone on to make a living singing and playing guitar, and often wonder what happened to everyone else,including Tony Brothwell, Mark Halton, Keith Adams, Kev Popowycz, Chris and Dave Bashford, Jusjit Johal, Alan Noon (then Alan Wright). My first few big loves were Susan Mansell (she was a third former when I was in 1A) then Joanne Harlow. My really big love was Jacky Thompson, who's best mate was Merrill. But I wasn't ready to commit ( I WAS only 15 though). Same old story. If anyone knows what happened to Jacky I'd love to hear from you. I'd just like to know that she's doing O.K. and to say sorry for being such a pain at the time. If anyone remembers me fondly enough to respond I'd be glad to hear from you.

Dear Mundellans(78-81),
I came across the website while surfing today. I got quite nostalgic. Nice to see the messages from Sandra Case(how can I forget Sandra Case!) and Gary Dilks' bro Paul. It would be great to receive some e-mails from some of the people mentioned. I can remember lots of names from my football team (don't worry lads..I'm still rubbish!)and from French and English classes. I actually knew John Ramshaw from teacher training before he started at Mundella. We keep in touch and he sees me up here in the North West(I have taught at Morecambe since 87)once or twice a year.I hope you are all OK. Best wishes to all ex-pupils . Do get in touch !!

Finding the Mundella web site and reading all the comments brought back lots of memories of school and friends from the past. As coninstances go about a week before I found the web site, while renovating an old house, mu husband found some old Mundella School books behind the skirting board. The name on them was HARRIETT TOWSON and the date on the work inside was between 1928 and 1929 mainly Geography and Geomentary.
It will be interesting to know if anyone knows anything or anyone from that year!
I myself remember from the years 1974 to 1979 Helen Sykes, Elizabeth Kelby, Carol Morley, Helen McKie, Jackie Dawes, Kathy Bartlam, Sheila Greenslade, Christine, Martin Whitehead, Richard, Justin, Simon, Jonathan and lots more faces that I cannot put names to. The lunch time pop mime contests and flowing waters.
Does anyone remember the last week at school in 1979 when everyone chalked on blazers and wrote on ties and the egg/flour fight?
Mr Robinson visited all classes and we were told that anyone not in full uniform had to clean it up. Anyone who wants to get in touch, I would love to hear from you.

Is there another reunion planned for old munkyellas? if so I would like to get details. More old memories willkeep me posted to this site ,even though Ihated the place when I was there, the youngest of a family of 7 , all of us won places at Mundella but I always had a hard act to follow having said that I believe we still did hold the record for the most chidren from one family, anyone out there that can beat that?. Look forward to hearing anyone Iused to know.

My years were 1967-74.
Just found this site via friensreunited.co.uk and spent a long tome looking for familiar names, before realising that I hardly remember any ! Nothing personal, and I'm sure you think of me just as often. Having played three-card bragg, badly, through most of the sixth form, I went to York University to do a Chemistry degree, and somehow left with a Social Science degree instead. I'm now working as an IT consultant in London, living in Ealing. Even at 44, I still can't sort out a decent haircut - Hodnett must have scarred me for life. Still follow Forest where possible - went to Munich for the first European Cup Final - when will we get another shot at that ? Great to be reminded of Henry Newton filling the coffe machines.
Will return to this site with a list of names I remember.

Hello to all old Mundellans. I attended the school from 1971 to 1976. Reading some of the previous messages brought back memories for me, especially the pop-mimes on Fridays, I'll never forget the stage fright I experienced whilst appearing as Mud and Sparks! Some of the folk I remember are - "Sid" Egglenton,Kev Cawser, Tony Bednall, Steven Davies, James Dunn, Pete Huggins, Richard Blundell (who if I remember married Elaine Hicks), Balbinder Grewal, Helen Moss, Toni Elston, Karen Lowe, Cheryl Tayler, Suzanne Pashley, Amanda Ashworth and Susan Bird also Peta Measures and Gwenda Jarvis who were both a year or two younger!
I also remember catching the no 45 bus from Wollaton Park to trent Bridge with Wendy Appel, Alison Morten, Claire ? and Jean? who all transferred from Clifton Hall in 1975 - Where are you all now?
I don't remember too many of the teachers but then they always said I didn't pay them enough attention!! I do remember Megan Starkey (physics) Stella Finch (geography) Martin Glass(French) and Spike (maths)!!
Anyone who remembers me please get in touch

I would like to hear from anyone who went to Mundella from 1976 - 1981. I would love to hear from Leo Beaumont so if anyone knows of his whereabouts please let me know. Mr Roworth was my headmaster, we got on well for at that time we both supported Nottingham Forest - but I've grown up from then. I now have 2 children aged 10 and 7. I was at school with the likes of Michael Bent, Junior Pennant, Sylvia Wood, Julie Miller, Emma Walker, Georgina Evans. I too had a "crush" on Mr Ramshaw as I am sure most girls did. I also remembered Mr Wood, Mr Best, Mr Robinson, Mrs Bell who was my form tutor, to name but a few. It would be really nice to hear from anyone who attended Mundellla when I was there, but I would like to hear from anyone who remembers me - u may remember I went out with Adrian Newton for many years, and I am sure he won't thank me for mentioning that, but what the heck we were young.

Remember?: We are Mundella girls,
We wear our hair in curls,
We wear our monkey boots
Way up above our knees.
We wear our fathers' shirts
Instead of mini-skirts,
And when it comes to toys
We'd rather play with boys.
La la la la la la..........
Also: Auntie Norris and her "past part-si-pal"
And: Martin Offord and his caustic wit
Not forgetting: Concorde, Werewolf, and Soapsuds
God bless: The nit-nurse

Does anybody remember that groovy Latin teacher (who didn't stay long) with the long ginger hair, purple trousers pink mingled kipper tie and platform shoes? Or did I fantasise him?
I remember: hiding in the prefects' loos on frosty
winter mornings and being put in
detention by Mrs Leake for it.
And: Blacking my face to do the three Degrees in
the pop-miming with Christine Dale & Gwenda
Jarvis. And we came third!
And then: Mr Hodnut asked me if I was a prostitute
because he saw my varnished toe nails as
I walked over to the gymn.
Don't forget: The old woman who sold home-made
suckers out of her kitchen freezer: just
across the road
And: Sneaking off to the chippy for lunch.
I remember all these things and so much more: some better memories than others.

It is Friday afternoon and I'm sitting in the study, trying to work at home. I can do this today as there is no court and if anything turns up, well, let someone else deal with it. I'm trying to lick a particularly awkward set of indictments into shape and getting nowhere.

My significant other, Kathy, just came in to bring me fresh coffee (she's from Missouri) and to ask how I am progressing. My mumbles and shrugs begat a withering glance and a request to look at her latest pro-bono project - a stained glass projection of the Shenandoah County High School crest. That is her profession, you must understand, stained glass. She should be at work too but, hey...

The conversation turned, yet again, to my school days, back in the mists of the long-ago, before Doris Day was a virgin. I have always avoided this topic as those days really have little fascination for me, I have long since lost contact with anyone that I knew then and, well, we've all passed a lot of water since then, haven't we, folks. But Kathy is insistent (I've mentioned she is from Missouri) and suggested (!) I try the Web to see if the alma mater has a web site. My protestations that the noble pile would be far to conservative, not to mention broke, to sustain such a new-fangled enterprise fell on deaf ears and, sooner than submit myself to further duress (Missouri, again) I initiated diplomatic relations with the Modem and, Lord Have Mercy!, there it is! The Old Skool! The hub of personal cosmos also suggested that I post a greeting on said site so that anyone who remembers me fondly (my howls of derision elicited another incendiary glare) might get in touch to share reminiscences about form 3H and the unspeakable tortures that the well-meaning but inept 'Loopy' Larsen was forced to endure.

I attended Mundella from 1965 to 1970 and sat in classes 1G, 2G, 3H, 4SII and 5SII. I also served a desultory sentence in the lower sixth before leaving to pursue a varied set of increasingly meaningless career options that, eventually, led me here - to the legal profesion in Virginia. I have been here some years now and live in a little town called Woodstock in the surpassingly beautiful Shenandoah Valley.

I'm trying to remember anyone that I might know. I can bring to mind a few names but no faces. However, if you and I were contemperaneous, drop a note if you have a mind. If nothing else it may make Kathy happy. You must understand that Americans are very strong on this High School stuff. They cannot grasp the idea that back in the Sceptred Isle we did not get all obsessed with proms and all that palaver. They cannot believe that we did not do these things. A PROM? At MUNDELLA?? Governments fall and crops fail at the very notion!

Anyway, some names:-

Andy Bowering (he entered the military, I think)
Martin Roe
Chris Savage
Steve Sobel
Dave 'Taff' Roberts
Graham Ryall
Sue Browning
Jane Foster
Jean Wilson (Sigh!)
Louise Tarbuck (ditto)
Ian Brown
Pete Taylor
Azad Khan
Paul Booth
Diane Kinsman
Andy Barton
Paul Badger
Bob Woolsey
Rob Wilson
Staphanie Downs
Hazel Hopkinson

If you were a contemporary of these people you were a contemporary mine.

Don't know what happened then. try again' I was at the old alma mater from 1950 -55 I would really like to get in touch with my old pal Rita Taylor (nee Mckay) last heard of living in France with a Frenchman. where are you Reet?
I've really enjoyed looking at the site and would welcome any message from contemporaries. I didn't do brilliantly at school always around the middle to bottom of the class but was always in the M class which I think was the arts top form?? Anyway I finshed up doing Social work and now work for the open university. I remember the maths teachers as I was so bad at maths. We used to have a song about Mr Ordoynio which rhymed with Wild Man from Bornyo. Dolly Onions who was going through the menopause and had hot flushes. Lovely Mr Calder who took us ice skating and did the waltz with me when I was in the first form. Bart Hart such a character and I still know all the words to Handels Messiah and numerous other works we did for
Speech day at the Albert Hall. Please contact me if you have aany memories to share - Pam (I've reverted to my Maiden name so this was what I was in 1950!)

Hi! It's great to find out about this site, just been on the phone to Jamie Scarrot - will be at the reunion on 31 March and am looking forward to seeing a lot of old friends. I was in 1S, 2S, 3S, etc, etc. Sat next to Adrian Hart for a while - who I had a huge crush on but would never tell him (he used to blush so much!). Wonderful, brilliant, fantastic years at Mundella - Mr Ward for maths was a laugh a minute (till he lost his temper!), Pauline Allen pretended to faint in History coz she'd not done her homework (I nearly wet myself laughing but Mrs Toomey (I think?) didn't find it very funny - can't imagine why!) Remember the year the teachers told us we couldn't have a school trip, and we all had a 'sit in' under the male staff room window - then some bright spark chucked a bucket of water over us all (Foss organised that I believe, not the water but the sit in). Whatever happened to David Yellowly, Andy Harlesltone, Simon Isherwood, Ranju Bouri. I met Tracy Kelly at a party some years ago(you remember little Tracy) - she was then married to Jimmy Smith (I think) the tallest man I've ever met (basketball player I believe). Am looking forward to meeting you all on 31 March - to find out what you're all up to these days. I'm still in Nottingham - although lived in London for a short while. Twice divorced (you'd think I'd learn!), three daughters (all taller than me now!) and not one grey hair in sight!!

Glad to see that the panaoramic school photo I submitted to the site has been published. Disappointed to see that it's been labelled as 1964 and not May 1969 and credited to one Steve Adcock.

Please be assured that this is the 1969 photo, as I'm certainly on it and didn't start at Mundella until September 1968.

There's also a copy on my own web site if anyone cares to visit it.

Thanks for the e-mails, great to hear from former school-mates.

Hello,

I'm a really old, old Mundellan. I was there from 1948 to about 1954, and loved it (apart from my Maths lesson with Mr. O'Doyno, who terrified me). My special classmates were Pat March and Joy Barrass, who I am still friends with, and I remember Pauline Dudley, Keith 'Valentine' Sargent, and my then sweetheart, Roy Wilson. I'm now retired from Local Government, having a great time travelling and lounging about.

I wonder if anyone out there has the 1951 School photograph which I could beg a copy of. Mine has cracked up with old age (rather like me!). I'd like to show it to my 5 grandchildren.

Memory not that bad then! I am meeting up with Zoe and Paul Dilks 23rd March 2001 for hopefully quite a few drinks and remembering our school days.

I came across this site because of the advert in the paper about the reunion later this month. Sadly, I can't make the reunion, but here are some memories and names that hopefully will inspire others comment on. I was at Mundella from 73-78. Some of the teachers were, Mr Ward(maths)David Wood & Mick Walker(games) Mrs Antonouris(French) Keith Sudbury(Chemistry)Mrs MacLeod(English)Mrs Leak (Uugh!)Campbell Kay (English and now something to do with the Arts Theatre)and the Biology teacher with the huge chest(sorry, I can't remember her name), Mr Rowath took over as head from Mr Hodnett. As for pupils, well there was Colin Agar, Colin Smith(excellent at arm wrestling) Micheal Purser(very good at slaps) Joey Grey, Carl Watson, Chris Smeeton, Andy Smith & Richard Rolfe(who both got on young scientist I think), Ivo Sharpe,Colin Murden, Irvin Bedward, Mark Eales, Tanya Brown, Tracey Asher, Julie Ann Harlow, Neil Pike, Ray Fretwell, Elaine Hicks (worked at TSB in Clifton), Julie James, Peter Nutbrown, Martin Maishman (who turned out to be an excellent sprinter) Richard (Neil) Wallace (nobody could catch him at cross country), Michael Clay (who I last saw as a Doorman at Maddisons), David Boyce, Leslie Bennett(who gave me a hard time when we sparred at kickboxing), David Towers, Janice Marshall (I started at the Post Office with Janice but I think she left to be an Air Stewardess), Simon Mason, Jonathan Hopkinson. We also had quite a good football team which included, Stan Mitchell, David Raynor, Mark Connors (he is still no taller),Nigel Metcalfe. One thing I do remember in the first year was at least 3 people in the same form(of which Michael Purser was one) having to have an appendix operation. There was also the camping expedition to the lakes in about 1976 and probably lots more that YOU can remember now. Memories eh!

I was at Mundella from 1968 to 1975. I can't say the first five years were memorable but the sixth form years were good fun. This site has brought back memories, both good and bad, and it's wonderful to see so many "old boys and girls" stand up for the place.

Thoughts that come to mind: treacle pudding in the dinner hall; the boring way that science was taught; the Orwellian Room 19; melting cheese on the pot-bellied stoves in the prefabs; Henry Newton restocking the coffee machine that produced drinks that all tasted like chicken soup; endless hours of Yes and Deep Purple in the Upper Sixth Common Room.

Being in Thorseby tells you eveything about my sports inability but a highlight was rowing a coxed-four up river to Clifton Bridge, and leaving our coach behind, then floating lazily down river before a show of power rowing between the Suspension Bridge and the boat house. Kudos to Michael Chomyn for that one. A lowight was a cross-country competition over a near vertical mountain in Derbyshire and hearing, while coughing up both lungs, that Sebastian Coe was not only finished, showered and changed but holding a press conference.

Sue Wilkie and I married in 1978 and moved to Canada in 1982, where we still live along with two children in Toronto. Old Mundellans in Canada, please drop a line.

My husband David Anderson)and brother(Barry Payne)have both posted their names on this super web site, so thought it was about time I did the same - just to prove that the computer world hasn't completely passed me by. If anyone out there remembers me, please get in touch. I have a few old photographs of some of my classmates and would be happy pass them on to anyone interested.

In addition to my husband and brother attending Mundella, my father also attended until 1927. He gained a prize for his cadet work whilst there and the cadet leader was a Mr Thorpe. Now, when I first went to Mundella, a very ancient Mr Thorpe taught Greek in a storeroom (before Bunny Williams joined the staff) and I swear it must have been the same man! So, if there are any silver surfing ex-Mundellan nonagenarians out there - it would be nice to hear from you too.

Looking forward to hearing from anyone from my year out there.

Just looked out the old School Report. There seems to be plenty of "could do betters" with the last year being full of "Has slacked this year". I think it reflected the fact that I was ready to leave - but don't get me wrong I quite enjoyed my time there.
Looking forward to the reunion on April 1st. Many thanks to Steve Adcock in particular for making it happen.

Hi everyone,

I was at Mundella from 1968-1973. Towards the end of my first year, in the May 1969, what I believe was the last long school photo was taken. I bought a copy (50p I think it cost!)and still have it.

After scanning it in five chunks I yesterday submitted it to this site. It is going to be stitched together and displayed shortly, Im advised.

If anyone wants a taster while this is being done the part that I'm on (i.e. one of the five chunks)and others in each school year at that time is on my own web site.

I've also got hold of the 1970 school magazine and will submit extracts from this soon.

Keep the messages coming in. It makes very interesting reading.

Someone mentioned a song about Dolly Onions.I am very sad to say that I remember the words.
Dolly Onions` got a bunion
A face like a spanish onion
A nose like a squashed tomato
And legs like tree trunks.
I can remember the tune and I know it is a tune from a real song but I can`t remember the name of the song.
Anyone from 1958-1962 who remembers me, please write

Well since my last message on the 22nd jan 01, i can't believe the amount of messages that have been left on this site. There still doesn't seem to be many from my era at Mundella, but i think they will come by word of mouth to this site. I have read all of them including the ones from Zoe, Jason, and Lee Haywood. There are so many other old school friends names that I can remember like Janet Blair, The Duggins Sisters (Sharon), Debra Whitely, Kirsty Wallis, Yvette Wright, Lesley Staples, Elaine Newell, Susan Patience, Jackie Styles, Diane Turner, Sally Brown and that's just a few girls. Here's a few boys Paul Weatherbed, Richard Clark, Simon Entwhistle, Lee (it's the kyper) Wood, he knows what I mean, and his bro Dale, Raymond Henson, Clive Jones, Chris Peet, John Bradley, Edmund 'Edd the Dread'Hillier, Jonathon Turner, so if any of you are in touch with any of these people, let them know about this great site so they can make there entries.

I remember quite a few of the names on here, Neil Willetts and Narinder Madahar were in the same class as me in the last two years, Jeff Arden used to catch the same bus as me and Mr. Offord had the pleasure? of teaching me (or trying to) English for 3 years, all was not lost though as I now work in a local Junior school as a teaching assistant, who would thought it I hated being a pupil myself!

Steve 1961 - 1966
Joyce 1962 - 1969

We met at Mundella - fighting (well sort of) at the back of the curtain on the school stage - Martin Southgate caught us and told us to come out from behind the curtain - still fighting today! (well sort of)
Many happy memories spring to mind, but having browsed through most of you seem to have beaten us to it. We married in 1970 and have one son, studying chemistry at Nottm Trent. The Millenium year book produced by Chris Wright for the '62 intake was brilliant - a bit of a shock seeing faces of nearly 50 year olds when you remember them as 18 or so!
Steve served over 30 years with Notts Police and is now wallowing in happy retirement. Joyce went into the Civil Service but left to 'raise the family' - she now clerks part-time (mostly to keep out of Steve's way so that he can be chief cook & bottle-washer).
It would be great to hear from anyone who remembers us.

Im not claiming this slot on my own behalf but that of the family Wilson. All seven of us: Walt, Mary, Betty, Helen, Jim, myself, Sheila are Old Mundellans. There were very few years between 1940 and 1959 without a member of the family at the school. We grew up in Park Street, Lenton which was raised many years ago to build the Willoughby Street flats - but are now scattered around the world.

No doubt the other members of the family will when Ive told them of this site establish their own slots, except Helen, who sadly died just before Christmas 1999. In the meantime I will gladly act as temporary postbox for any messages anyone might have.

I only logged on to listen to listen to the webcast of Forest beating Man Utd (OK it was the FA Youth Cup, but definitely a sign of things to come ), and for some reason did a search on Mundella, expecting a similar response to the ones Ive had I previous years. The result was a total and very pleasant surprise; this magic box of memories, a cornucopia of old names, old friends, old times good and bad recalled, and a lost nights sleep as my mind whirled round in it all. Well done whoever dreamed it up!

The one empty feeling I had was the lack of any reference to my cohort the 1952 intake, particularly the science stream who went into the sixth form through to 1959 so Im rectifying it now. Im thinking of (alphabetical order) Jean Bunting, Charly Chesterton, David Hughes, Liz Sadler, Josephine Smith, Richard Westrop and Pauline Williamson. I would have added Alan Westlake, but I know he died in Toronto in the early 1980s. Apologies to any Ive missed please dont lose sleep over it, I already have. Id be really pleased to hear any news of them.

For my part Im putting my feet up in Crete. Im trying to put them up as many of the local hills and mountains as I can, when Im not struggling to complete a part-time PhD at Imperial College, which at current rate of progress looks as if it might be have to be awarded posthumously.

I was at Mundella from 1970-1975. I found out about this site from the Evening Post and was touched when I saw the page come up. What an excellent idea and my gratitude to those that have made it possible.It brought many happy and some bitter sweet memories back for me. Some names have made bells ring but i have always wanted to know if my old friends are well and happy wherever life has taken them. I could probably think of many names to mention if i gave it deep consideration but those that come straight from the top are Sean Queenan, Cleveland Wright, Peter (Pepsi)Nun,Bryan Wall, Sybil Lang,Peter Coombes,Kevin Bishop,Adam & Theresa Roberston, Sandra Walker,Jane Sedgwick, Kathleen Burrell,Simon Brown,David Hill,Martin Scott. I met Keith Sudbury at a local school in Nottm (The Forest School) where he is head and also Mr Jacobs who works for the Bramcote Crematorium. I wish everyone success,health and happiness and if anyone wishes to contact me I am now back in Nottingham after a lengthy spell in the Middle East and I would dearly love to hear from anyone who remembers me.

My original message disappeared, so here goes again. I was there from 57 to 65. I remember Elaine Daley, Susan Fox, Mercia Brentnall, Chris and Michael Nies, Fred Finney, Stuart Buxton, Eddie Clifford, the late John Turner and his brother Graham. I have kept in touch with Mike Wells and Roger Little (my brother-in-law).
I am another of the ex-pats now living in Arizona, USA.
Dolly Onions taught me to love Maths (and to duck if she picked up 'Mr Parr'). Barton Hart taught me to love music, and that there are no 'simpel' questions.
Was it 'Tilley' Townsend? I have debated over the famous art teachers first name, some of you also seem confused. She always answered many requests with 'wash it out in the sink' (being fairly deaf) so some wag asked her 'can I go to the toilet', and she told him to 'wash...'
Has the 'Axelotle murderer' confessed yet?

I'm still in touch with Fred Fox, Alan "Scobie " Robinson and Frank Ellis - and my brother Tony who was there 64 to 70 and now lives in North wales.
It was only the other day Frank and I were reminiscing on the days of glory past and wondering what happened to all those other young hopefuls - looks like we're going to find out now !

Back again - this time to confirm that the 1972 - 1977 reunion is confirmed for Saturday 31st March 2001. This is being arranged by Jane Soos and Jamie Scarrott, following the success of last year's get together. Unfortunately we're unable to use The Newmarket Inn as the room we used last year is not available, but Jane has found an alternative:

Date: Saturday 31st March
Time: from 7.30pm
Where: Russell's, Shakespeare Street, Nottm. (opposite Central Fire
Station)

Jane is putting an ad in the Evening Post and Jamie is contacting the local radio stations so we should "hit" quite a few people.

Please let me know if you can make it, so I can pass names on to Jane - it would be great to hear from you anyway.
Regards to all

Have had time to think since my last message. I was at Mundella from 1975 - 1977 - I was one of the Clifton Hall 'girls'. Seem to think my form was 4P/5P - form teacher was Mr Gardner. Some of the people I can remember from my form are:- Lucinda Fish, Judith Smith (I think she married Julian Clough who was a year above us), Candida Johnson, Ranju Bouri, Jeremy Hayes, Peter Penfold, Paul Garton, Christine Rice. Some of the other people I can remember from my year are:- Jayne Hilary, Alison Brown, Mick Brown, Diane Spendlove, Carole Stretton, Jill Aslum, Omar ?, Tim Davies. We all used to go and sit on the pavilion across the road at dinnertime! There was a re-union about 8 years ago, Mr Sudbury came but I can't remember who organised it. The last re-union was just last year and Jane Sousse organised it, some of the people there were:- Paul Ryder, Andy Hudd, Chris Hancox, Tim Peck, Sue Agar, Paula ?, Jane Abbott, Gwenda Jarvis. Anybody who knows me or anyone who doesn't can e-mail me on this address until 21/02/01, after that there will be a change of e-mail address.

I attended Mundella from 1975 - 1979. I went on to Forest Fields Sixth Form and life just wasn't the same. My memories include the horrendous Hockey Kit and afternoons spent on the freezing field with Mrs Atkinson. It was enough to put the keenest of Hockey players off. I also remember Mr Kay (English ) and his wierd hair cut. He used to come into class smoking a cigar!! I was in 1G & 2G out in the pre-fab & we used to set our wooden rulers on fire on the boiler! Does anyone remember the enormous mrs Bell (History)? One day we put a broken chair behind the teacher's desk and she came in (we all had to stand up). She walked round to the desk, sat on the chair which collapsed under her & she ended up in a rubble on the floor. She burst into tears which soon halted the laughter from us. We ended up feeling really guilty. Those were the days!! Mind you, I could've lived without the outside girls' toilets, but there's another story!

I'd love to hear from anyone who remembers me. Julie Hughes are you out there?!

I was at Mundella from about 1966 - 1967 and looking back on the experience after a lifetime in education (am now a lecturer in teacher training at Notttingham Trent) I am considerably underwhelmed - I have some degree of nostalgia for my peers and the times we had but the standard of teaching and the curriculum on offer left a lot to be desired. I don't think many would survive an OFSTED INSPECTION TODAY!! Idle buggers , most of them. Some did inspire though - Mr Robertson(?) in history and there was a Latin teacher who saved my life and rescued my imagination after it had been severely inhibited by Mr Sweetland - what was his name? How come I remember the villain and not the knight in shining armour? I remember Olga Stztuka, Anna Szczepankiewacz, Heather Robinson and Ann Crawford - what a multi- ethnic crew we were! I married Tim Disney - also at Mundella - and we have a marvellous daughter, Catherine - we got divorced and are now back together - Yippee!!

I have been bullied into doing this by Dilksy (Paul) who has just discovered it. I was at Mundella from 1978 to about 1982. I lived on Collygate Rd with my mum Sandra (nee Bullimore) who is also an old Mundellian (1949 - 1953?) before moving to Wilford Crescent East. I am now every mans nightmare, a female traffic cop, still living in Notts. I have a two year old daughter and believe me 'Never again' she cried. One is enough. Apart from Dilksy, I recently met Lisa Carter (nee Wall) who is still living in Nottingham and am still in contact with Tracy 'soon to be leaving for Australia' Rolfe. I still hear through the grapevine of peoples whereabouts. Names from the past - Simon Czy (sounds like newtitian), I used to be able to spell it, Kenny Anderson, Kelvin Hepburn, Judy Duggins, Anita Miller and her sister Julie, Karen Lane who lived on Bathley Street and Sylvia Edwards.

Don't know what made me open up "Mundella" on the net yesterday but was it ever a good idea??!! Reading some of the stories was great or as the Yank said to a certain drunken TV Chef, "I ain't laughed so much since the pigs ate my little sister"!
Monkey Della, Red and Yella, can't afford an umberella!
And I thought I had forgotton it all.
I seem to rememeber my last form there was 3E or similar and we were so useless we didn't have a resident class room!
When I was there I was so short I should have been in a circus and I well remember climbing onto some gorgeous teachers knee on the 43 trolly to Bulwell. She was lovely and I was eleven! You don't foget things like that! The only time I was sent to see Mr Calder was when I was caught hanging round the neck of a girl about a foot taller than I. Can't remember if I was punished but it would have been worth it!
I do remember one day in assembly when we were ordered to remove our names from where they had been engraved into the bricks of the boys toilets. Mine was of no consequence but the head boy of the time had his in three inch letters. I think his name was Woodcock!
Speak to me someone if you were there between 46 and 49.Forest fans would be a bonus. Remember Leverton, Gager, Scotty, Harry Walker, Thomas? How the heck do you spell nostalger? I'm swiming in it.

Attended from 1966 to 1973. I had seven wonderful years. I played football and cricket endlessly, found my wife (still married to Denise after all these years) and even managed to pass a few exams as well. Great days, never to be forgotten.

I recognise some of the other names on this site, but where are all those from my year?

I still see one or two of the old staff around and about, Mr Mitchell is usually in Mapperley Co-op on Saturday morning, whilst Miss Miles/Mrs Hawthorne shops at Sainsbury's in Arnold: Mr "Physics" Taylor has retired from teaching and is the curate at St Marks Church, Woodthorpe. John Gardener is teaching at Arnold Hill School where he has had the pleasure? of teaching my kids.

The Steve Adcock shown in the photo isn't me, but one of my neighbours. I've known him 18 years without realising we both went to Mundella! It's a small world isn't it?

Denise and I would like to hear from anyone who knows us.

It would be good to hear from any ex colleagues who remember me particularly fellow guitarist Phil Kirwan and drummer Richard 'Stan' Staniland (think he may be a lawyer in Nottm?)both ex-Salty Dogs of course also my old mate Martin Evans last heard of at Aston Univ. Janice Taylor and Judy Roe who were also good friends.

I also recall we had a pretty good football team in earlier years coached by Mick Walker (good experience before he took over Notts County) The line -up included Johnny Turner ( or Martin Evans)Steve Ford,Peter'Dom'Ward,Paul Sheldon
Dick Shipley,KeithRadmall,John'Whizzo'Whittaker,Ian Hunter,Billy Marshall,Phil Voce,Mick 'Mazy Dribble' Wells.
We beat everyone in sight until we got too cocky challenged Notts Boys and lost 7-1 !!
I used to get roped in to play for Mick Walkers Derby Amateurs when they were short along with Johnny,Dave Mosson and Chris Nies.

I too can shed light on the demise of the oft referred to axolotyl which occurred during the showing of the Real Madrid v. Eintract Frankfurt European Cup Final in the biology lab!!

Just joined the internet revolution and found the Mundella web site. I was there from 1947-1953. I was a member of Welbeck house and played cricket for them and occasionally for the school. I remember many of the staff mentioned particularly Onions, Barlow(who ruined my artistic attempts by telling me I had no sense of perspective whatsoever), Ainsworth (i think for history) and of course Barton Hart. School chums remembered were Alec Hayes, Bert Drury, John Anyan, Alan Buck and of the girls Noreen Barton, Celia Holroyd, Norma Goode. Anyone out there who remembers me ?

I was there from 53-60. Fond memories of practicing with the speech day choir and Barton Hart following the footsteps of latecomers on the piano. Love to hear from anyone of my era.

I was delighted to find out about the Mundella website.I was at the school from 1958 - 1965. I lived on Arkwright Street at the time, so our house was a regular staging for people on their way to and from school or just wanting to escape from it at lunchtime.It was also a collection point for people at weekend on their way to and from Forest and County matches and Trent Bridge in the summer.I now live in Malvern in Worcestershire.
I am still in touch with :-
Ian Smith 1957-1964 ( now lives in USA )
Eddie Clifford 1957-1964
Graham Turner 1958-1965
Derek Pashley 1958-1965
Tim Holt 1959-1966
Mike Wells 1961-1968
My brother was also at the school from 1952-1957.
I share many of the memories already recorded by others.Two favourite teachers I did not see mentioned were Maurice Taylor ( French ) and Tom Robinson ( History).
I remember why cross country was so popular in P.E.lessons when George Hunter was in charge.I met him years later at a friend's wedding reception, complete with the ex. Miss Brummitt.
I also know who was responsible for the demise of the axolotyl - keep watching the new entries for further information !
I would love to hear from anyone who remembers me.

It was great to read through all the other E mails.Yes I remember the boilers and the stench of melting setsquares.
Someone mentioned the popmime contests,I did Tammy Wynette ,'Stand by your Man' as a first former..and couldn't get back through the curtain coz I was so nervous...Cringe..
I also remember going to the chip shop on fridays and having chips and gravy for 4p and then sitting on the bus bumpers in the bus garage to eat them.
I went out with Angus Foxley from the year above me for a while.Other names I remember were Wendy Slater,Helen Mackie,Liz kelby,Elaine Varney,Janet Goodhead,Tracy MacBride...From the lads;Simon Cridland,Johnathon Shorland,Carl Needham.
From the teachers Mr campbell Kay ..yes Shakespere was born in wakefield!!
Mr Robinson for French..I hated French.
Mr Sudbury ,Biology all drawings had to be in pencil,no colour.Disecting the worm and the sprat,and that stuffed fish that was falling apart that we all had to hold (I can still smell it)
The old prefab classrooms ,burning string under the desk.
After leaving Monkeydella, I trained as a Podiatrist,married and had 4 kids the oldest of which is now 15. After moving around a lot,

Found out about this after seeing Spike Nettleship on New Years eve. I was at school 72-77 and then left to join the Army, which I'm just about to leave in March. As for the Cecil Roberts travel prize, well I won it in the last year and cycled round Holland. Once I've dug out my old reports I'll be back.

Regards Foss Forsyth.
