I was putting away my Newtown School reports and just noticed that the headmaster was Mr. Archbold.
Teachers initials were JW, CHE, RAK. Who was JW & RAK.
After Clegga I did J1& J2 at Jarrrow Tech then S1,2 & 3 at Bath Lane N/cle then A1& A2 at Bath Lane and what is now N/cle Uni. Rutherford College.
Reading the school reports I was a bit of a duffer at school until Pop Armstrong took us.
He got me going in Maths.
So much to my parents delight I ended up with an engineering qualification equal to a university degree.
Mind that went out the window after 7 years when I was moved over to the commercial side of the company.
But I still say thanks Pop !
