Hi Chris - Yes I was in 1.3 and 2.3 before leaving in July 67. Now that you mention it I do remember the one armed maths teacher. I think he lost it in the war. I was in Browning too but I can't remember the name of my Tutor - he was an older guy witrh grey hair and glasses - I remember the name of an older boy in my Tutor group who was in 4th or 5th year called Mockeridge. Cheers Bill

Nice to hear from you Bill. I don't recall so many names now, but remember my tutor - Mr Stone - I was in B5. I also remember the music teacher, Miss Vaughn Jones, whom we called "Scraggy Annie". Mr Stroud, then Mr Brook were Browning housemasters. Have you visited www. friendsrevisited website, there are quite a few entries on FHS from that era. Cheers Chris

Hi Bill, yes that's the one, I meant friends reunited. Were you the tall boy with glasses or am I thinking of someone else? Cheers Chris

No glasses - tall with straight brown hair with a slanted fringe and quite sticky out ears - somebody in the class nicknamed me Haggis - because I was Scottish - maybe that was you!lol

Thanks for the info Bill, I do remember you now. You might recall I was nicknamed "Ali" by Wally Knight, because my then surname was Barber. The name stayed with me until after I had left school.

Wally Knight. What a teacher. So calm compared to Mr Vogt in the next room who you could always hear shouting.

Who recalls the terrible Magoo's buses that took us down to Sidcup for sports.

Anyone recall Dr Wornham who was a local vicae but came in to teach RE.

Have stumbled across this site/thread by accident....

I also attended Forest Hill School from July 1964 to July 1971.
I was in Tutor Group Newton 2.
If I remember correctly my Tutor Master was Mr Setram who I think taught German.
I believe that it was a Mr Smith who was the Newton House Master at the time who left and his position being taken over by a teacher who taught Maths but whose name escapes me for the moment.
In my early years I was taught French by a Mr Bowen.
I remember quite fondly Wally Knight who I remember always being very smart 'old school' and having highly polished shoes. He taught me English Literature. I remember a teacher called Abu Hassan (or similar sounding name) who taught English Language at 'O' level.
In later years I was taught Physics by Mr Fenton (the other class had Mr Poole).
I studied Engineering at 'A' Level which was initially taught by Mr Marler.
I recall him taking a group of us down to South East London Technical College in Lewisham Way in his Armstrong Siddely car. I recall that he was quite ill and I think he had to stop teaching and I believe passed away.
The remaining time at Engineering 'A' level was taught by a Mr Riley and later by Mr MacDonald.
With regard to other postings......yes I remember the trips in Margo's double decker buses to Sidcup and undertaking the cross country runs along the Sidcup-Bypass. I remember the initial construction work on the swimming pool at the bottom of the two main playgrounds.
I must see if I can locate some old school reports to see if there is any information on other teachers....i.e. the teacher that used to play the school organ at assembly and taught Music and Art......

Have rambled on for long enough so will end now.
