Closure of St Werburgh's Primary School by saveourschool (Member 10008858) on 1-Jun-2000
The people of Warrington are being grossly mislead by their Education Chiefs. Inaccurate figures, illogical arguments and broken promises have lead to the victimisation of children and parents. Ever wondered how far some people in power will go to get what they want, even if no one else wants it? Then visit: http://www.saveourschool.freewire.co.uk/
and find out.

Dublin Weekend 12/5/00 - 14/5/00 by Rebecca Webb-Heath (Member 10011967) on 15-May-2000
I am trying to track down somebody I met at the weekend in Dublin. Unfortunately I have very limited information about him. All I know is that his name is Nathan, about 6ft with dark hair.
He was in Dublin on a football trip.
We met in Fitzsimmons (a bar in the Temple Bar area of Dublin). I was with a group of girls.
Please e-mail me if you know who I am talking about or if you are Nathan. Please. Thanks.

Closure of St Werburgh's Primary School, Warrington by saveourschool (Member 10008858) on 10-Mar-2000
Do you know that councillors who had never visited St Werburgh's Primary School in Warrington (and openly confused it with another school) voted to close it recently?
If this is democracy in a modern town, then your elected representatives are a disgrace!
Find out the truth about how and why this decision was made at:
Thankyou for your time.

  • Re: Boteler Grammar School by stephen murphy (Member 10017727) on 29-Sep-2000
    I seem to remember that there were a couple of cracking PE teachers one after the other. First there was the delectable Mrs. Foxley (who I'm sure Dave Clifton,rugby playing history teacher, fancied), then there was the nubile, sexy Miss Platt (England national hurdler), who I think Clifton ended up marrying..lucky *** I remember pretending to have hurt my ankle once so that Mrs. Foxley would help ... more >>

  • Re: Boteler Grammar School by Tony McNevin (Member 10020076) on 12-Nov-2000
    I was at Boteler from 71-76. I remember all those mentioned above, Thommo (PE) Fud (complete with bunsen burner tube!!) Sucker (certainly straightened me out with Maths...teach by fear method ). Once you got around him though, he was dead easy to sidetrack. Just mention Leeds United and he'd be off on one!

  • Re: Boteler Grammar School by Gary Welsby (Member 10025527) on 7-Feb-2001
    I was at Boteler from 73-78. One of my funniest memories is when I was in the 5th form and some of the more musically inclined people in our year decided to enter the music competition of the Warrington Festival. Come the night of the competition we went to the Parr Hall to watch them. The rest of the schools had sent pupils who were playing violins and trumpets etc. and the judges were 3 sweet ol... more >>

  • Re: Boteler Grammar School by Kevin Lawton (Member 10025534) on 7-Feb-2001
    I went to Boteler between 1973 and 1980 and so remember all these teachers. What memories! To answer Dave Lawton’s query, I think the PE teacher that used to “warm your bottom” (to use his words!) was Don Stobbs. I remember he often forget names – he used to call everyone whose name he’d forgotten “Jackson”. I also remember Fud used to go for a sly puff of his pipe in the chemistry lab stock room ... more >>

  • Re: Boteler Grammar School by Gary Welsby (Member 10025527) on 7-Feb-2001
    Here is another name from the past...Happy Harry (Mr Harrison the maths teacher)He taught those of us that Sucker Smith had washed his hands of. ie set 4. I still feel bad about the way we would act up in his class. His was our next set after biology and he would often come into our class to find on his seat the remains of whatever we had discected in biology. In one class I remember Mike Solan wh... more >>

  • Re: Boteler Grammar School by Gary Welsby (Member 10025527) on 7-Feb-2001

    FagAsh Lill the French teacher don't remember her real name...Doc Elliot the coolest woodwork teacher...Pin Head the German Teacher again don't know his real name. I also remember a geography teacher whos name I don't remember, not Thommo but the other one who was always going fell walking and drove the school mini-busses.His name could have been Stan... more >>

  • Re: Boteler Grammar School by Kevin Lawton (Member 10025534) on 12-Mar-2001
    How did you find out about the reunion, Dave? Would love to attend any future ones if poss. I remember the tuck shop well but you had to avoid trying to pass any foreign coins in your handful of loose change when Babs Walton was serving because she had eyes like a hawk. I also remember Brian Glover (Goldfinger), the English teacher, too. It wasn’t that he was boring (I went on a school trip to Aus... more >>

    I attended Boteler from '76-'81, I remember Nicky Carroll and all the teachers mentioned. My daughter goes there now, only Hugh Chambers left from our days. Don't see much of anyone else from our year, where are they now??

  • Re: Boteler Grammar School by Michael Gabriel (Member 10040975) on 14-Aug-2001
    Still trying to take all the nostalgia in from the message board - brilliant! Was lucky enough to attend a reunion a couple of years ago for '78 & '79 1st year pupils but haven't heard of any more. Pam Jones organised that particular one but I'm not sure if she's planning a re-match!?
    I can remember most of the teachers; Thomason the ozone-unfriendly and, sadly, deceased PE teacher (does anyone ... more >>

    I'm here again. Have lost the best part of a working day going back over some of the times of my life and wondered if anyone still has any old photos? I have lost every photograph or artefact associated with my Boteler-days and would be grateful if anyone could mail something to me at the address shown. Especially welcome would be pictures from the '78-'83 years but anything would be gratefully received!

  • Re: Boteler Grammar School by Kevin Lawton (Member 10025534) on 5-Nov-2001
    I have a scanned photo of the staff of 1976. If you’d like the memories to come flooding back, especially of Stavros with his amazing hair and jacket, email me and I’ll reply with the photo attched to it.

    Sure is! Next door to you, in fact, Mark!

  • Re: Boteler Grammar School by Mark Livesey (Member 10108205) on 18-Nov-2003
    So Kevin, where do you live now? I think the last I heard you were around the Bristol area. I just came across this board by chance when I was searching Google for anything about Boteler. Guess I am becoming nostalgic in my old age.
