I wanted to add a note or two on some favourite teachers:
Mike Barford - a really patient, friendly chap and a brilliant cricketer, part of a successful Cambridge University side from the early seventies
Tom Jeffers - another patient chap (I wasn't the easiest teenager, I have to admit) who never let you down.
A Classicist called Trappes Lomax, who had a lateral side to him, very entertaining and anti-establishment - this appealed in those days.
Chris Nicholson obviously, and Des Carrington. And a soft spot for Tom Keeley and JE Dennison.
Not an exhaustive list by any means - there were numerous good guys on the staff in those days, though I suppose I didn't think so then.
I've been a teacher myself for 25 years - the biter bit - and have to admit, I had many excellent role models at CH in those days.

Does anyone here present actually recall his performances? Further, does anyone recall ever witnessing the gentleman attacking a piano in his post-Prep era? Because I know I don't.
Definitely a top-notch human being though, as indeed was Joe Slater. And Paul, CWN gave me one of those one-off extra Latin lessons in his study on a Sunday afternoon, but frankly I was beyond hope. My brain just froze over. Nice try though, CWN, and ever so above and beyond the call of duty.
