Paul ChastonPeter Bertram, Mick's eldest son is Chairman of Governors. Mick was my Maths teacher and also taught my son and daughter!! The man in the picture - at first glance looked to me like Pete Marr - Music.

Stuart MarshRoger is spot on and this brilliant teacher of Geology set me off on a great career; I will be forever grateful to this man who I never got to thank properly
