Wetherby High School Teaching Staff, 1969 - Close-Ups

from S. Robinson : Sat next to Mr Fitton on his left is Miss Barnes - how could Diane Bonner and Dawn Hennah ever forget her?
An admirer of Mrs Fielden recalls : this blonde beauty, I remember, was the girls' P.E. teacher...but her name escapes me (not any more!). As a pre-pubescent 1st year I remember me and another lad trying to look up her skirt as she went up those open stairs just inside the reception area which went up to the staff room and library level. I think Reg Taylor was really pally with her, if my memory is correct.
from Nikki Suttill The 5th person sat down from the left I think is Linda Mann who I presume still lives in Wetherby. If it is her then she now works at a Nursery in Wetherby
from Diane Bonner on the subject of Mrs Berry : remember the snake in the bottle? They have still got that at Wetherby High although it looks a bit haggard now....
just a thought : did anyone ever see Mrs Johnson and Margaret Thatcher in the same room at the same time?
