Memories of the bike sheds
I was a pupil at Stanmer from 1964 until 1967. I cannot say that my time there was marked with any distinction. It was a lovely school though, very modern at the time; light and airy. The head teacher at that tim was Mr. George Williams, a very friendly man in his mid-fifties. He was ably assisted by Mr. Colin (Whacker) Wills as deputy head.
The antics of Stanmer boys knew no bounds. I remember girls knickers being run up the flagpole and flour bombs being thrown from the domestic science glass by a group of unruly girls. Mr. Kite was the English teacher, Mr. Pennells the woodwork teacher, Mr. Gough the geography teacher, Mr. Brady the (I think) science teacher and Mr. Boiling … Bubbles as we nicknamed him … was the languages teacher. Miss Scutt took music classes.
