What a superb school this was. Wigan Education hang your head in shame for closing it down.

Linacre lad, I fully agree with your comment.

An experiment that succeeded. I have never come across anything as good. A lot was lost in 1963.

Never thought I would see another pic of me from the old TLS days, right behind Mr Gapes.........even more than fifty years later I still have great respect for the man for what he did and the encouragement he always showed us. I will never forget him shouting at the top of his voice, Addi Addi Addi when Addison was on track. HAPPY HAPPY days and will always be thankful for the academic and life lessons I learned in that school
