Who are you and where are you now?

The photos came originally from Sue Butlin, who I have been told was a teacher at the school. The photos are believed to have been taken by the person who was headmaster prior to Mr Rothwell (Mr Furner). Sue donated them to The Newhaven Historical Society who are now the legitimate owners of them. The Society have kindly allowed this web site to publish these photos in order to try and identify the dates (which are thought to be late 1950's early 60's) and also to ask if anyone can put names to the faces and answer the question "where are they now?". Because there are over 50 photos altogether, they will be published just a few at a time. If you are able to help, please do so. Thankyou

Top picture, Photo 01, on left is Jim Dudley. I went through Newhaven Secondary Modern (later Tideway) with Jim between 1959 and 1964. He lived in Cairo Avenue in Peacehaven but in later years moved to Newhaven when he became an Architectual Consultant. Sadly Jim passed away in 2004 but I have great memories of our school days and when we met again at the reunion in 1998. Mr. A. R. Furner was indeed the Headmaster.

I was at this school from September 1953 to april 1957. Mr Furner started the same day as I did and Mr Sauders was my first teacher. My best friend was Anita Ware. I would love to see a photo of her as she died several years ago.

Just a comment, I have identified Jim Dudley in photo 01 on my previous posting on 26.03.10 but a question mark has been subsequently added ! I can assure you I am correct.

My apologies, this comes under publishers headings as "Editors errors and omissions" and has now been corrected. RB (editor)

Hi, I left this school at Easter 1960, the lads in the 5th photo are unknown to me but I was taught by Mr Smith "Smiffy". Although I used to pull a few jokes on him, he really was a good teacher and I really did learn from him. Many a time he would say to me "See me after class" which of course I did. He would then ask me why I had to see him, and I always replied "Don't know Sir", he would then say "If you can't remember boy then you had better get going". His memory certainly was not that bad.

I was a student 1960 - 61 and attended Miss Cavadini's shorthand typing class, she changed my life.

I was quiet and shy and a terrible student. She gave me hope.

I will never forget her or Tideways.

God bless you all.

Big surprise to see this web site, a big step back in life to see the teachers and mates from those days. left during 1963 by the way.

I would love to know if anyone has contact with two friends from those days, Brenda Palfrey and Mary Ralph. Regards to all that remember me.

Hi Roger, don't have any info on the girls, but I think I remember shooting rooks nests with your dad !

Note From Editor:- Completely against the law in this day and age, luckily for the rooks.
