Yeh Meach, Johnny "Chip on Shoulder" James needs a good hair cut and some Shoulder surgery. In fact he needs to be surgically fitted with a balaclava. Haha. he needs to get out of the Rainbow if he doesn't like the clientele. In fact he needs to stay out of the pub and get on with life, it's no practice run, it's the real thing. Hey Johnny, it's lovely out here in California mate. I bet it's lovely in the Rainbow too, when you're not there...
I don't even remember you but you need to do some exercise and get fit
Sounds like life is treating you well Meach. Still riding two wheels?
Mr Breslin I don't know if you remember me I too was in the Mortimer House. I remember I think was Mr Rowland on our end of the building he is the one with the hot wife.

Yes, Mahendra of course I remember you. Dave Rowlands popped up on the Facebook 'I survived Wyre Farm' page. I bet your wife is hot too if you look a little closer. Your sister is hot! I met her down in San Bernardino a few years ago. Turns out she is a friend of mine from Coventry who lives there now. Did you ever buy a hotel? I know it was on your bucket list. I bet you live in Canada now, that was also your dream. I remember you well. Cheers

I notice that I appear to be the only ex teacher to have found this site, by chance. This was my first teaching post in 1977. I had to follow in the footsteps of art teacher Terry Walker. Not so easy as he was a strict disciplinarian and I was not in the same mould. However, I have lots of fond memories despite some reservations about the school ethos. It was funny to read about the day that the hall was raided and alcohol taken as I was on duty that day and had pointed out to senior staff that the hall was unlocked.'Oh, that's nothing to worry about' they said. That is what THEY thought.
As for me, I have been teaching 'problem' teenagers almost ever since leaving there and am now making a career change into counselling in Bristol. I am glad to know so many of you have good memories of the place and that you survived to go on to greater things.
I thought you were a very chilled out teacher, probably because of that it was the subject I put most effort into. One of my funniest memories that you may recall, was when we were allowed to come in during the evenings to paint denim jackets, George Bell from my class (Scottish accent) had done a great album artwork on his jacket with the help of Andy Durram?or Dugan, then decide to enhance it with some stencilling "Deep Popple" ...it's sound good if your Scottish. The jacket was never to be seen again.
Best regards
John

Hello lads,
I was at the school from '77 to '82, when it closed. I always remember my school days with warmth. They really were the best days of my life, and none of the teachers we had were particularly sadistic. There were rumours that Jake (Mr.Williams)jumped off a chair for extra leverage when he used the cane, and gossip about a teacher called Mr Burridge and the french teacher Jack Woods being gay, probably because they were both bachelors, although Jack did end up serving a 9 month sentence for sexually abusing a pupil.
I remember some of the people on this thread, but a lot of you were before my time. Seems to be mixed feelings about the place, which is a christian outdoor centre now, and has changed a lot, but i loved the place. I still love Shropshire, since i still have family there, and i live in Sweden now...

I was at Cleobury Mortimer school between 1962 & 1965. I was in Dudley house. I remember a guy named Glen, who came with me from my area to the boarding school. I lived in Parrots Grove, Coventry. I've been trying to find out why the school closed, I heard it was because it was too strict. If anyonje has any information about it, I'd love to know. my email address is psochor@me.com
