Re: Politics

Things were very different at Hertford. I can’t remember anyone doing O levels early. For most people, 8 was the maximum, though it was possible to take either Art or Music, almost as an aside, as an extra ninth one. The A levels was the rule too, I desperately wanted to do a fourth, I could already...

Re: Politics

My latest have been very boring, slim line wallets - never ever looked for one, and researching family history, I’ve done nothing like that for several years.

I don’t understand the algorithm!

Re: Politics

I get quite a variety, never been offered an exotic husband though! It seems to bear little relationship with recent browsing, I’ve never looked for retro record players, a recent one.

Again many thanks, Spoonbill. I’ll have to wait till I’m sent the inevitable photo!

Re: Question for former band members

Many thanks, kind sirs. I only knew the word as a male singing voice, not as an instrument., but I knew somebody here would know!

Question for former band members

I had an email from a friend in the States, in it she said her grandson was learning to play the baritone and hoping to join the local band soon.

I know I could look it up, but is this term used here for a brass instrument? Did you have them in the band?

No, only saw them as topics. Had an early morning!
Now I know what the exclamation mark is for!
That was one of the reasons I asked the question, David!

Julian, they are all over the place at the moment, sorry I’m not going to complain about each individually!

Re: CH Letter re support for abuse survivors

Our Housemistresses were non-teaching members of staff. I believe they were treated as second class members of staff. As I remember it, they had one afternoon off a week and one night away each term. They had two rooms to live in, sitting room downstairs. That was also her office and where you were ...

If I see one, I use the exclamation mark button to report the post. Is this the best way to report them, Julian?

Re: What is the impact of a CH education?

We always had to put the word Religious first, we were taught that was the most important of the three words.

Re: CH Letter re support for abuse survivors

There are other posts indicating these types of incident - where apparently there were not sudden departures. E.g. here is a post from a girl who talks about 'an inappropriate' relationship that she had with a teacher (this post was in 2011): 'In my last couple of years, I had an inappropriate rela...

Re: What is the impact of a CH education?

As for timing, I guess the press has died down and was massively less for Martin's trial, plus they may have hoped some people were unaware. I wonder how many OBs aren't even aware of any of these cases. While obviously a very serious and important set of events, it's not front-page news on papers,...

Re: What is the impact of a CH education?

Hugo Middlemas is Director of Development. The link to the survey is linked to the email, as it now as I’ve completed it, so there’s no point forwarding it to you.
I was not impressed with the questions, they didn’t give enough chances to explain answers, options were too cut and dried.

What is the impact of a CH education?

Has anyone else had this survey in an email from Hugo Middlemas today? I haven’t looked at the survey yet but it strikes me as very bad timing. I would have thought that they would have left any such surveys in abeyance for the moment. As I only had the one chance at Secondary School education, like...

Re: The moon landing at CH

Term dates changed, but I’m not sure when. My brother’s birthday is 26 July but wasn’t always home for it. He was at CH from about 1953 to 61 or 2. I can’t remember which day of the week was always end of term, but Peter would be home if his birthday was the right day of the week that year! My Mothe...
