  2. Denise Driver , I remember her , a sweet shy school girl who had a school girl crush on me (I was older). she wouldn`t have a crush now on this bald , bearded bespectacled 67yr old bloke , but who knows LOL .

  3. I was at Killamarsh secondary modern school during the years 1960 to 1964 then went onto chesterfield college to study hairdressing!!!

    • I think the Teacher was Mr Vincent Thornton, who taught English & drama. His classroom was in the wooden hut built at the side of the playing field. Mrs Arblaster (nee Yendall) was in the other classroom.
      I left school in 1959 and Mr Thornton had been the English teacher for a few years.
