  • Re School Creed. Well remembered Graham, that did bring back memories of standing in rows by years ( first years at the front) in morning assembly. With Mr Compton & Mr Hardwick on the stage. I do recall the school team houses. Dragons, Lions, Falcons & Greyhounds.

  • I asked if anyone could remember our School Creed.
    Here we go, this is how I remember it.

    This is our school, let peace dwell here, let the room be filled with contentment, let love abide here, love one another, love mankind, love thyself, love God.
    Let us remember so many hands make a house, so many hearts make a school.

    Be grateful if anyone can confirm this.

  • Sorry for the mistake, I think it is Stephen King sitting 8th in, think Colin Robinson is above Stephen with the grinning face 😀

  • Regarding the photo at the German salt mine visit.
    1st in the line is Jane Clarke
    2nd in line is Natalia Jerkew
    6th in line (could be Carolyn Fletcher?)
    7th in line ( could be Cynthia Morton?)
    Is that Colin Robinson above Cynthia?

    Can anyone remember our school Creed?
    Which we recited in morning assembly 🤔🙂

  • Mr Swain was Geography not Swale.
    Mrs Mackintosh was teaching Art as well as Mr George.

  • Was there a Mr Stan Bullard or similar, (always reminded me of ‘Desperate Dan’), who took metalwork around 1966 / 67 time? Great memories / great times.

  • Myself and two of my sisters and two of my brothers went to Cumberlands and Rosemary school in Mansfield, I also spent time at Rosemary school but mostly Cumberlands.
    Mr Compton was an amazing Head Master and Mr Hardwick a great deputy head of boys.
    Mrs Westbury, formerly Mrs Bean, was head of girls.
    Mr Bennet, history ?? Mr Shed, definitely the English teacher or an English teacher, maybe there were two…
    Mrs Parkinson Domestic Science but before her was Glenda ?? she was a lovely teacher.
    Ivor Roberts Geography, Mr Hill RE.

  • Can anyone remember the name of the R.E teacher, and the name of the French Teacher? The later teacher is in the picture of the German salt mines trip, sat 6th from the back. If I remember (although not sure), she did go on and marry Mr Adams the maths teacher??

  • I was at Cumberland’s ’67- 72 (5th) year. There was only 1 Mr Bennett & he taught Rural Studies & English. He left in ’71, to become an headmaster at a junior school in Norfolk, he told us it was just for the birds & wildlife. Don’t forget Mr Roberts the PE teacher. From ’67 the headmaster was a Mr V. T Compton.

  • I think that was Mr Swain (geography). Mr Bennett was the English teacher who wanted to retire to Wells-Next-The-Sea as he was into ornithology.

    By Martin (24/08/2020)
  • Just recalling some of the teachers names when I attended Cumberland’s Secondary Modern School on Ladybrook Estate. 1967-1971.
    Miss Fox (English), Mr Adams & Mr Freeman (Maths), Mr George (Art), Mr Shed (English), Mr Sale (Science), Miss Smith (PE), Mrs Parkinson (Homecraft), Mrs Westby (Needlecraft), Mr Swale (Geography). Mr Hardwick (Metalwork), Mr Daniels (Woodwork). Mr Bennett (?).
    Mr Parkinson was headmaster & another Mr Hardwick was deputy. Apologies to those I’ve missed. Can anyone fill in the gaps? 😊
