Where is New Lane school? Has it been demolished?
Anyone remember Carl Whittle the head teacher there who was also chairman of the council and used to vanish from school on a Friday to attend to council business.He’d leave a load of maths questions to answer for when he returned on Monday. The infants’ teacher used to sit with us and try to help us. She was worse than we were!my friend and I always had to stay behind the following week.I still can’t do maths although I was a wages clerk when I went to work and no-one complained.
