Memories of Paulsgrove Secondary Modern School

Published: 23rd March 2011 20:28

 
This photo has been sent in by Alan Winter. It was taken in the early 60s of  boys from Paulsgrove Junior Boys School. Are you in it?

The above photo was sent in by Lynne Pritchard who believes it was taken around 1972. Also in the photo is (l-r)  Kim jones, Janice McDonald, Pauline Rolfe and Jackie Evans, with Lynne on the far right. Lynne said, "We are dressed in white plastic bags cut up and think we danced to Telstar. I remember feeling quite chuffed that I had a main role, I was never very confident so was a bit embarrassed as well!"

The above photo was sent in by Barry Jenson and shows pupils in the 1st year catering class at Paulsgrove Secondary Modern. Barry can name a few but can you add any more names?

Barry said, "I know a few of the lads but I'm not quite sure. The one on the back row far right is my brother- in- law, Stewart Henderson. Also, on the far left on the back row is his old pal Adrian Synes. The year is about 1960. The teacher on the back row I believe was Mr Davies. The teacher on the front row is the Head, Mr Street. To his left I believe is an old pal of mine Terry Watson."

  Teachers at Paulsgrove Secondary Modern sent in by Barry Jenson.

Did you go to Paulsgrove Secondary Modern? Which teachers do you remember and what were they like?

I remember Miss Dollimore, I went to Paulsgrove sec mod for girls in 1972 through to 1976. I thorougly enjoyed my time there! Especially art lessons, with Miss White, who then left! And was replaced by a real oger, Mr Swan, who also took maths. The school kinda went down hill when it changed to King Richards, that happened in my last year, just around exam time, which I think ruined a lot of childrens chances of good grades at that time, because of the upheaval
My name is Debbie Goff, my best mates were Julie Davey, Sirleyann Nolan, and Jane Marsh.

It is true when they say school........best days of our lives!

I went to Pausgrove Secondry Modern Girls in 1971. I also remember Molly Butler, she was the deputy head, and Mr Clark was my music teacher. I remember we our pottery teacher, although I am unsure of her name, but we used to call her Rubber Lips, because she had lips like Mike Jagger!
Some of my friends were Carol Bridle, Lorraine Hill, Julie Britton and Pam Ager. I wonder how everyone is getting on!
I moved away from Paulsgrove and now live in Waterlooville, but I am back at Paulsgrove working in the Healthy Living Centre, with my own business, Body & Soul Holistic Therapies.
It would be great to hear from anyone that remembers me from school.
Take care, Chrissie Monck

Hi all!
I went to Paulsgrove Secondary School for girls from 1967-1972. There was a Beverley (was it Hodge?) in my class, whose best friend was Daphne White - great gals, had loads of laughs with them. Also remember Jane Edwards, Tina Brushwood, the class clown Debra Kessick, Janice Lawler...
The teachers in my time were Mr. Clarke for music - I remember we sang 'The Ash Grove' a lot, and he wouldn't let us near any instruments, which were locked away in a cupboard. There was a (Swedish?) lady who took us for cookery, who got engaged to the rather dishy geography teacher. Mrs Dollimore ("Blood will flow!"), and her sister Miss Dyer (my favourite). I remember us doing West Side Story as an end-of-term musical and the local paper trying to make out that the fight scene between the Jets and the Sharks was a real fight between the kids on stage - they really had it in for that school. I left in 1972 and moved away (oop north - aargh!) and often wonder if the school is still there and what happened to everyone. All such a long time ago now. Strange to think that those eleven - to - fifteen year olds are now fifty-somethings. Must go - I feel a lie-down coming on!

I used to go to Paulsgrove Secondary Modern from about 1971 to 1974. I remember some of the names mentioned including Molly Butler. The geography teacher was Mr.Howarth. The pottery teacher was Mrs. Jennings I think. Shorthand and typing Mrs. Ward. English Mr. Yule. Maths Mr. Shields who used to have an archery group at lunch times. I used to spend most of my time with Sue Simmons and Rebecca Brown. There was a common room for the third years called Space Three. I have diaries I kept back then. My surname then was Rolls. I went to Westfields and Greenfields Junior schools. Remember Evans the shop across the road where we used to go for snacks and sweets, Blackjacks, fruit salad and others.

Hi Bev!
Just realised I've got you mixed up with a girl called Beverley Hobbs (quite a few brain cells have died since then!) - I used to have a really awful first name (changed it by deed poll as soon as I was 18) so I'm remaining anonymous - no-one would remember me anyway - but it's good to look back and remember old times.

Blast! _ my wandering mouse just sent that off before I'd finished.
Sandra jogged my memory with Mr Howarth and Mrs Jennings. I keep remembering more names since starting this. I think there were about 36 girls in my class - I left just before the boys came - great timing! Anyone remember any of these: Susan Exton, Janice Newman, Linda Turner, Lynne Pritchard, Janet Fisher?

I was at Paulsgrove boys from 1961 to 1964. I remember George Rigger well, he was our English teacher and year 1 and 2 cricket organiser and possibly the best teacher there. Ivan (the terrible) Bowler was our maths teacher, oh how I remember those weekly formulea tests and how they struck fear into our hearts, pass mark 7 out of 10, 2 consecutive failures meant the cane!!!!!! Music - Mr Clarke, geography - Mr Easy? Only just joined this site and GOSH is it bringing back some memories!!!!!!

Hi to all who read this.As some of you know,Saxon Shore and Westfield Junior school are closing sometime this year or they are meant to be!The new shool is being built in Allaway Ave just west of the motorway flyover.The new shool is being called The Victory School or something in those lines.When i attended these schools in the 50s They were called Paulsgrove East infant school and junior school.I was wondering if anyone has any old pics of the days gone by at those 2 schools.I have asked at both of these schools if they had any old pics of the classes over the years and nobody knew anything.Ithink they have been thrown away,and if they have i think it is criminal.These photo's ,and i know classes were photographed because i remember being in one or two,show the history of the school's and how things have changed over the years.I can remember standing in the playground with the complete school and waving at the Queens train just after the coronation in 1953.Someone out there must have old school photos , or know of any records that used to be kept about the schools teachers and the pupils over the decades.It will be a shame if this old school is demolished without any old photographic records.
Here's hoping some will be posted on here.

Found a school photo and have uploaded it, but cannot work out how to get it into here:( There are 5 of us, Kim jones, Janice McDonald, Pauline Rolfe, Jackie Evans and me (Lynne Pritchard), we are dressed in white plastic bags cut up and think we danced to telstar. Old Red you named me (as found in google), what about you? Daisy Holland careers teacher supposedly, told me I would never get into John Pounds school to do the NNEB course, so I did to prove her wrong then hated it, you gotta laugh:) I left after a year and went to work in commercial rd in H Samuels!.

I think there was 2 more(you and a brother?) you lived at 63. I do remember the games we used to play, Tin, Cannon which didn't cost a penny to play. Others that used to play with us were Crockfords (my cousins) at No.60 Jack Smith No. 71 sometimes the Eastons No. 90 and Felthams No. 78 came down to play. No cars to bother us either I think I remember Carol Derry living in Elkstone Christine Peach living in Tintern Close and yes those Memories do pop up in your head now and then.

Hi big al, I guessed who you were when you said you lived at 58, how's big brother Michael? Richard lives in Bedhampton, Chris lives in Cosham, and Nicholas lives in Portcheste so they are not to far away. ROB

Hello, I am currently looking for someone with the name of Richard Keil. He went to Paulsgrove Secondary Modern for boys in about the 1960s era.

Having spent a morning with Phil Glover and recounting our days at Paulsgrove, I found this site. Left PSM in the summer of 1969. Teachers I remember are Mr Alison, geography, Mr Russell , English (saw him on TV last year at a Burma Star memorial) Mr Easy, Mr Tanner, TD, Mr Swan, art, Mr Clark , music, Mr Long and Mr Waller, woodwork, Mr Pearce, PE ( I was in the school fencing team), Mr Fellows , physics, Harry (H Bomb) Jarvis, maths, Mr Simmons, French.
School friends, Chris Thompson, now living in California, Keith Pullen, London way now, Phil Bailey-Green, departed, Bernie Young, the odd email exchanged, and the rest whose contact long lost.
Left Paulsgrove in 1971, moved around Hampshire before discovering deepest Dorset. Now retired.
So what did Paulsgrove Secondary Modern do for us? We all left with a good education, some qualifications, a good handle on life and most importantly a job. "as we set out on life's highway to the life that lies ahead, remember the school and its teaching and all those things that were said".
