  1. hi there,
    so i`m doing some research into my family etc and i found a school report for my dad from this school in 1959/60, and i was wondering if anyone could tell me whether my dad is in this photo as i haven`t seen any photo`s of him as a child, and would be good to hear from anyone who knew him. its David Jobling.

    • Hello Kelly
      I was in the same class as David, I don’t think he’s on the photo, but neither am I. I remember him in the juniors. Did he live with only his mother? I seem to remember her being quite small. He was a challenging lad, always getting into trouble. I remember he and some other lads found some money about £5.00, a great deal in those days. They hid it at a builders near the school and spent a little each day on sweets. He passed the 11 plus and went to Brackenhoe
      Technical school newly built next to Bertram Ramsey & the high school. I ended up in his class 63- 64. Along with a teacher Mr Colligan, Marton road was closed. David thought he would push the new teacher, to test his limits, but came off worse, as he got a size 12 across his backside which propelled him across the classroom. I can still see it! That’s all I really remember. Is he still with us? I’d like to know if he remembers me
      Regards

  2. Gosh – just spotted this and immediately recognised “the Hut” which was the reception classroom when I started school at Marton Road 60 plus years ago! I must have been in the year before this 1958/59. Mrs Sanderson was my first teacher. She had just come back to teaching after having a child and her son was in the same class as me.

  3. I’m in this Sharon Miller was Dodds middle row 6th from right, the hut Mrs Sanderson’s class about 1959 Marton road school, left in 1966 to go to Bertram Ramsey til 1971 good memories.
