I remember some staff. Mr Jones (Welsh) Headmaster, Mr Jones Housemaster Quorn House. Mr Goldenhanns(ds) Belvoir House Master, Mr Mac, cant remember his full name, Fernie House Master. Mr Leach - (my chess Tutor) AKA (by me) "Von Leach"! Mr Staniforth, Mr Hotchkiss (Rock Cake) Science Teacher, Mr Graham Hill my Music Tutor and writer of the Schools song, Mr George Bentley (Jag XK 140) Deputy Head, Mr Wood also Deputy Head, known for his Sunday night Stories, especially Dr Sin, Mr Cohen - Woodwork Master, Mr Nuttall, Mr Cooper, my class teacher (English), and Dr Graff the pshyco - he interviewed Rudofh Hess. Miss Dayborne, who married Mr Wood. There are a few I cannot put a name to the face.

Hope this is helpfull. Richard has my email address.
