From mind to paper and back again.

Activity 24.3

Mrs Ashton was a very strict teacher who taught in a silent classroom where people sat at individual tables reading the latest GCSE works or scribbling away at the next piece of course work. People used to take the mickey out of her because of the way she looked and spoke, very tall with curly ginger hair that never stayed put she wore clothes that clashed with the colour rather than complimented it, all topped off by a strong Aussie accent which really didn’t help. Give her due though, we all did well in our exams.

Mr Pimlott was a strange form tutor, he was a strange teacher actually. He dressed very eclectically with cord trousers and thin jumpers the staple of his wardrobe. His local haunt was the art department where if he wasn’t throwing paint at a canvas he was playing the ‘Saxamaphone’ as he used to call it. He used to tell people that he was called Septimus Pimlott – the first years mainly and they generally believed him. It was Steve really although I’m sure he only told us in his form and his GCSE students. I never took art, but had music in common with him.

Mr Conway was my inspiration to do this course, he was my English teacher in year nine when I was doing my SATs in high school. I’ll always remember after we finished he gave us a piece of homework after we had done the exams to prepare us for year ten. I still have that piece of home work and have been working on it ever since. A dedicated teacher he even offered to help me with the piece once he had left the school and given up teaching! Mr Conway’s distinguishing feature is the scars he has from acne on his face, some people used to laugh but strangely it never phased me in the slightest.
