Chemistry teacher


Taught Chemistry in the Technical Institute where he remained when the School moved to Eversley Court, for the new home had no labs and therefore boys travelled back to the Institute for teaching over 9 years until new labs were built.

He therefore taught in some isolation from the main School, imposing sound discipline upon his charges tempered by a kindly generosity. An inspector reported tentatively that he was “perhaps a little severe in his discipline” but boys knew that ‘his bark was worse than his bite’ and that he always had their best interests at heart. Generations remember his ‘bellow’ with affection.
