gews corner/pentbrook

the late 60s

By David Goodey

Just to follow on the memories of Paul Haikney, I was at school with him in the late 60s and remember Ms Brooks, also her habit of polo mints.  I also remember Mr Dimmer a very good teacher and Mr Rann, although I never had him as a teacher, he was a formidable sight around the school.  I left in 1970 and went to Turnford then left in 1972 to move to Suffolk.

  • I went to Gew’s Corner from 1958 to 1960. My class teachers were Mr. (Jack) Dimmer ’58 and ’59 and R.H. Powell in 1960. Headmaster was Mr. Oldacre. Mr. Rann (‘Trot’) was a sinister being. I have visions of him punishing a boy in the assembly hall by whacking him on the back between the shoulder blades with the flat of his hand. A horrible vision that has stayed with me for 60 years!!
