The first photo of pupils at St Thomas' was shown on here some time ago. The teacher at the back is Miss Charles, who had quite a reputation for discipline (that's putting it mildly). She was still there when I started there in 1960, teaching 11 year olds. Fortunately by the time I got to the top class she had retired.

TS, I attended the school in 1950 and the little 'bully' taught me or rather ordered us about, as the old saying goes "little and nasty" and in Miss Charles's case there were never truer words. 'Teddy' Reddish was our headmaster and he was totally different a kind understanding man, Joe Brookhouse was another teacher there in my short time at St. Thomas's.

In the first photo, I believe that the lady teacher is Miss Charles as my father in law is the lad with his arms folded and immediately in front of her, and always maintained that it was her.

One looks at that picture and wonders why she became a teacher. She does not look in the least bit happy in her work. Indeed she looks a postive evil bitch and I sure am glad that it did not befall me to be one of her pupils. However, at my school there was a teacher who might well have been her 'more kindly' sister and, heaven knows, even she was a right bitch of a woman. Did those somewhat sadistic teachers not know, or care, how they scared the living daylights out of their pupils. The bitch at the school I attended caused one girl to have a nervous breakdown and as a result her parents took her out of the school permanently.
