PICTURE  GALLERY

This page is intended to hold Photos (AND ACCOMPANYING TEXT) that members have sent in, on any of the following subjects.  (If any member feels that we should include a new sub-section (to this page) on a different subject, then please feel free to write in with your suggestion.)

It is intended that this will provide an option for members who do have an interesting picture, but not enough text to write a fully fledged letter.  Mind you, a picture with no text at all, will look awfully bare and uninteresting.

AIRFORCE CADETS


Hi Webmaster,

Here are some photos of the CCF’s RAF Section. I have fond memories of my time with the Section. Unfortunately it closed when its OC, Cedric Wilde, left LCS to go to The Holt. I went to see nearly every teacher asking for one to take over the Section. None would, and it came to the point that whenever a teacher saw me approaching he headed for the hills.

Sadly, Sid Philpotts died very suddenly when in the VIth Form. I thought him to be the best cadet in the Section. He was very keen.

The RAF Section had its own hut in the School yard, a relic from the days before the CCF when the School had an Air Training Corps Squadron, (No 780 Squadron ATC).

The Navy Section cadets presumably had nowhere better to go on that day. It got me off a double period of maths.


ARMY CADETS

CHALKIE
Lt. Col. Sidney Francis Chalk, M.C.  T.D. - Commanding Officer of the Combined Cadet Force.

Known as "Chalky" and was the 'Maestro' of Metalwork Classes as well as being Form Master of 4D.

Put in a lot of time, indocrinating cadets into the myteries of Firing 0.22 gauge rifles in the Rifle Range on the top Floor.  Apart from the Formby and Altcar Camps,  he also organised at least one camp at the OCTU in the ground of Eaton Hall (Chester).

He seems to have kept it quiet that he was a "Lt. Colonel".

LUNCHES

The 7/7/2016  Lunch

I started School as a "newt" in 1955 in form 3D, when the form master was Maurice Derbyshire. The following years were spent in the A stream and apart from the Annual Dinner, I have had no contact with my fellow pupils.

Just prior to the 2015 Dinner, I was provided with a photograph of the 3A students and I passed copies to those lads who regularly attend our Dinners. There has been a welcome response and exchange of identities which has been intriguing our group. In spite of our best efforts and a copy of the form list, we have not been able to put names to everyone on the photo.

Following comments from our group at the Dinner, I was persuaded to arrange an informal lunch meeting where we could catch up with each other.

Some of us had no contact since leaving the School in the early 1960's. The lunch took place at 1:00 pm, on 7th Jume 2016 in the Artists Club on Eberle Street, Livepool (by the Town Hall) and photos of some the group are shown below. Also shown is a Link to a short video clip where those present sang the School Song with much gusto.

To listen to THE SCHOOL CHORISTERS, click on the following link ------>   SCHOOL_SONG

N.B.  use the arrow in the top left hand corner (or click on "ALT"+"LEFT ARROW") to return to this page.

BTW,  We have our member, Vic Ash (1957 – 1962), to thank for an excellent letter 'touching all bases' regarding our lunch.  In particular, here is a copy of his Postscript :-


P.S. The team sheet on the video clip (of the School Song) for our choir should be:-

Alan Markham, Edward Murphy, Ian Ferguson, Bill Thomas, John Morris, Les Howell, Evan Jones, Graham Stow, David Canter, Dave Barraclough, Norman Kennett, George Hutchins, Alan Gainer, Dave Winsland, Vic Ash, Colin Greaves, Frank Williams, Joe Lucas (Chairman COBA)


In addition, here are a few "Snaps" (taken by our Host, Derek.) :-


Our thanks for this entertaining and enjoyable meeting go to Norman Kennett and John Morris who are both members of The Artists Club in Liverpool, our venue.

This was a grand occasion and it is hoped that we can meet again later this year. If you would like to join us (Bags of room at 'The Artists') please feel free to contact me at :-

What a surprise! I was looking through your website as my late father attended the school when Dr Brown was headmaster and found a photo of him in your gallery section pf school plays entitled “The Curtain Call” – if I read the legend correctly he is  third from the left.

Hi Webmaster

This picture looked awfully bare with no name :-) .

It's over 50 years ago, but here goes.....

Back Row: Yours Truly, Dave Barraclough, John Baldwin, Micky Price, Colin Griffiths, Barry Fitton, Billy Leech, Phil Percival.

Front Row : Mike Galley, Owen Fisher, Johnnie Fowler, Li Ross, Barry Caton.

With apologies to those I might have wrong !

Trust all's well.

Cheers.

Eric Carr.


Ta! Eric - I wonder whether young Li Ross (on the front rwo) can verify this, for us - Webby :-)


Hi Webby,
Eric has almost got it right. His only mistake is Baldwin's first name - it is Keith not John.
Sadly, Eric is right about Mike Price, who died a few years ago.
Cheers
Li

TEACHERS

Here is an example of the work of Frank Harris (1939 - 1944) - His cartoons appeared in the Liverpool Echo - his main character was named Willie - It seems that Willie attended the Collegiate when he was a schoolboy - Frank missed out on attending our last dinner, for the first time in years, but some of his cartoons "originals" were raffled off.

Mystery Teachers & COBs

What we have here is a couple of (RECENT) pictures of ex-Collegiate Teachers and Pupils. These were sent in by a COB as a challenge for our members to recognise anyone who they may remember applying some discipline to their (bent over) rear-ends. Admittedly a few of them look a little bit more "long in the tooth" and their ‘strong right arm’ may have ‘withered with age’. But then, try looking in a mirror, yourself :)

Unfortunately, this member did not identify exactly who each person was. Can we members rectify this omission and name any teacher or Classmate?  If you fancy that your memory is infallible, why not email in to "Webby" by clicking on  HERE  to identify any of your previous Mentors or Classmates?  (Those you attended the recent Dinner, may have an advantage, here.)  I'm afraid that we can't offer the successful member, even a "Putty Medal" but think of the 'honour and glory' of your name in lights :)

BTW - There is at least one person here who was only a pupil - Who is that?

And, for those who are baffled by this challenge, do you have any (MYSTERY) pictures of your old teachers for us to baffle other member with? All are welcome. Come one, come all!

BTW - To put you all out of your misery, you can see"Top Cat's" suggestion by clicking onto Mystery Teachers,
