Hello Mick, I don't know if you remember me, the name is George Vaughan, I can remember a lot of the names in Derrick's post but I cannot remember him, old age creeping in again. Nice to know there is a few of us left still

Hi George Of course I remember you. You were quite short, chubby face. I'm surprised you don't remember Derrick but then there were people I forgot. Mick. (Sorry didn't reply earlier, don't check in that often)

Hi Mick, thanks for replying, I am still in Coventry, in fact just round the corner from where I lived when I was at Foxford. I remembered quite a few of the names of pupils and staff, most of whom I liked and respected, but one I hated was Stan Mills, he was a big bully on the sports side of things. George

My last year at Foxford School, 1940-41. Eddie Branson (teacher) taught us - music, singing, football, cricket, swimming, English, geography, science, gas mask drill, air raid shelter drill. Tommy Woodroff (blackbat) (teacher) taught us arithmetic, history, and the cane, and assisted with the drills. Cook (headmaster), Mr and Mrs Cole (teachers) taught the 8 to 10 year olds, assisted with the drills. We boys had the choice of half a day a week to do woodwork or metalwork, the girls cookery at Windmill Lane School. Branson I would put under 40, Woodroff in his fifties, Cook in his fifties, and the Coles in their 60s (guess work)

Hello Derrick, just discovered this website & found this post whilst researching something else. I attended Foxford in the 60's & recall a lot of the names mentioned in your post. I was in Mercury & Mr Knight was the Head as I recall. My schoolmates included - Adrian Booth (who later became a teacher at Foxford), Alan Powell, Remi Pollard, Bob Ainsworth (became Coventry Councillor & MP), Martin Hewitt etc. I was big into my sports mainly football representing the school for Coventry Boys & Warwickshire levels. Brings back some pleasant memories. Richard Mather Edited by member, 24th Jun 2017 4:45 pm
