  • I was at Newgate Primary for a year and a half when my Dad moved us from Scotland to Mansfield for work. Happy memories from my school time, not least the headmaster Mr Coates, who was a genuinely lovely man who seemed to enjoy his job. I was heartbroken when we had to move back to Edinburgh.

  • Nursery School attendee aged five. Mrs Pritchard was our teacher! We used to sleep for a short while during our day – Don’t know if Mrs Pritchard did! – nice lady, never forgotten. Left the main school aged eleven. Lived locally in those far off days. I do remember Mr Dunn, he was the art teacher (plus history) I believe.

  • I remember Miss Robinson. I was at Newgate School from 1962 and she was my first teacher in the junior part of the school. She was a most lovely lady and I was sorry when I had to move up to the next class. She seemed very old to me at the time!

  • Does anyone remember Miss Robinson , who taught at the school ??

    She was my aunt , with my grandparents I spent many weekends and Christmas holidays between 1954 and 1969 . 

     My grandfather worked at `John Robinson – tailors ` for many years with his brother . Cheers, Martin Robinson

  • I’d almost completely forgot about the BP petrol station on Newgate Lane near to where the Chad office car park is now.
