  • Richard Hoban:  I'm sure ex-Bentonians of that era will recognise Cyril Elliot the Headmaster. He was the first Head when the new school was completed in May 1959. Pupils started to join the school ( I believe ) in the following September. He appointed me in April 1972 as a Science Teacher. Cyril retired in summer 1975. Les Overend, the Deputy Head at the time, took over as the interim Head until Jeffrey Smith became Head in 1976.

    • Ian Wray I was there from 73 to 78. I remember you Richard, but of course you were called Mr then. Other science teachers were Mrs Peck, Mr Beaver and Mr Dulake (great shot with a blackboard rubber).
