My name was Nancy Brennan, and I used to be in Stanhope Road school, until 1961, and wondered if any of my old classmates might be around.
My Mom just found out about this link and passed it on to me.
I remember 'Killer' Crowell too. I got caned by him a couple of times. I thought he was a great teacher though.
I don't remember many of my classmates names, but here are the ones I do remember.
Kathryn McDermott
John Pollock
Isabel Cole
My favorite teachers (sorry I'm used to the American spelling)were the sisters that taught English and domestic science, but I'm afraid I don't remember their names.
I left school just before the end of term in 1961 and went to live in Crystal Palace.
A few years later I met and married my husband 'Tom Jones' from the States, then lmoved to the US.
I would like to hear from any old classmates, but if I don't then I will just peek in to see others talk about the old times.
Nancy (Brennan) Jones

Don't know if I am any relation to Henry Brennan, but I know he's not my brother. My Mother was born Elizabeth Noble Brennan in 1930. I know we have a number of Brennan relatives, but don't know any specific ones in the Shields area.
