    Hands up if you went, and what year did you leave?

    I'm only a young'un, left 8 years ago in 2011. Wonder if there's anyone here I know and don't realise it.

    Back in the late 70s though.

    Who remembers "Spot" Avery, the history teacher?

    Left in 1974. Was part of that great Holgate football team that won the Barnsley inter-school league and cup in seasons 69/70, 70/71 and 71/72 without conceding a single goal. In friendly games in the same period, we conceded 6 in 3 seasons. It was a great school which taught me a lot.

    Left in 1975, I remember Mr Jarvis the maths teacher, made my life a misery because I couldn't understand anything he was on about, used to humiliate me in class. I didn't know my fractions from quadratic equations!

    Jarvis was a b*****d. Did exactly the same with me. Never forget the half smile of complete and utter amazement he gave me the day the O level results were out cos I'd scraped a C. Nothing like as amazed as I was mind.
    He was a decent cricketer though. I remember watching him in the masters v pupils games.

    I used to do an impression of him to my mum & dad. Before the parents evening I did another, saying "Whadda ya wanna know". Low & behold these were the precise words he ushered, as my parents arrived at his door at parents evening. They totally cracked up apparantly.
