Mr Astell – Headmaster
Mr McVeigh – Headmaster from 1949 – took over from Mr Astell and improved the educational standard of the school. He would interrupt classrooms carrying a cane which he whipped against his leg in a threatening manner!
Miss Laine – taught the youngest pupils, particularly music. Dez developed his musical ear from Miss Laine.
Miss Coles (Mrs Moynihan)
Mrs Fuller – prepared pupils for the 11+ exams and was a fair disciplinarian for which she used a 12 inch ruler across the palm of the hands! Dez recalls Anton Karas throwing an absolute fit when Mrs Fuller was trying to punish him!
Mr Malone – left in 1950 to teach in Kenya – replaced by Mr Hughes who activated some sports teams for the school. Favourite hymn, “Hail Redeemer King Divine”
