Minchenden School

Old Photos from the 1950s

Some B & W photos of teachers in the 1950s. Members of staff: Mr Stabler joined our reunions until recently and Mr Mayo was the father of a famous BBC personality. Mr Finlay is remembered for the quote" if you can't be famous be infamous" and for male students being canned by Major Hedley in the gym was a right of passage. Times have changed!!.
