Just happened to see this forum. My uncle was the manager there in the 1950's when I was very young. I can remember being given the run of the hotel when holiday there going everywhere I shouldn't have, including the kitchen where they made me lovely cakes. My uncle produced a wonderful blue decorated cake to celebrate Leicester winning either a cup or league championship.There was a market nearby which I used to love visiting. Wonderful memories.i think it was taken over by Trust House Forte.

Ok teachers of Moat Rd

Mr Jackson Maths Teacher, ex Leicester City player , very violent chap from memory. Mr Green Music teacher very very skilled, however poor man could not control class.

We really did not appreciate what talent we had teaching us in those days, yes a bit Victorian in approach but good. We never called a teacher by name it was Sir, and basically we called each other by sur name , something I do with friends now which they like, why I don't know.

My favourite lessons sport, ok guys and dolls lets hear about your teachers, and likes and dislikes

So, was Vestry the one that we all had to queue up and wait until the last session finished? or was that Spence?
I remember if you were really quick in changing,  you could dive into an empty pool,  and for about 10secs you had the pool to your self.

Barry,  Did you go to Moat Boy's? you may have been in my class 61-66 ,
Maybe if we asked the forum members, what they thought of their teachers back then,  it would get some fun reaction!
Jackson!! Green!!
Anyway, If you are the Barry I'm thinking of, Glad you got out of Leicester it sure went downhill.
