Didn't go to King George school, but I hated teachers, all of them, we had a headmaster called Mr Stanley, he was a child hating thug, he had a henchman called Rigby who did the thrashing on stage in front of the whole school, while Stanley looked on and trembled with excitement, he used to sweat and lick his lips, his mouth twitched, he loved it, they would lock him up for it today. One day I was outside of his room sent there by another teacher while he talked to a girl about a man she had met in the nearby woods, I could hear through the door, when it came to my time he was shaking with excitement, I kid you not, I hated teachers. That was early 1960s things have changed thank goodness.

Mrs Rayson and Miss Alexander (PE) there was another PE teacher who transferred to Redwell (Mrs Mallam?)
Mrs Moyse (French)
Miss Hails (Holy Hails, RE)
Mr Goodwin, Mr Myers (Physics)
Miss Kemp (Geography)
Miss Anderson (Chemistry, also had a sister who also taught chemistry and they were in a Barber Shop choir ad used to practice in the prep room while we were doing practicals!)
Mrs Gedling (maths, was also a guide leader)
Dr Mac, (think taught German was also head of 6th form)
Mrs Huntley (domestic science and needlework….there thats showing my age LOL)
Sheila Graber, Art,
Miss Porthouse (history?)
Miss Minto (can't remember what she taught!)

I am considerably older than you but remember Miss Hails from my days at the Girls Grammar School. My daughter went to King George from 78 to 85 and imagine my surprise when who should I see at parents night but Miss Hails who taught me twenty years previously.Also remember Dr Mac but I did not do German so she never taught me.

I was the very first year of Comprehensive…I think Miss Harris had no interest in us, she saw us as potential secondary school. Miss Hails taught me O level RI and I recall her in earlier years disliking hands that went up and telling us we were not windmills! LOL. Brenda Orwin and Sheila Graber were my favourite teachers. Brenda lived not far from me and occasionally I saw her in the garden if I passed by to pass pleasantries to.
