Memorable stories and life events
A truely lovely gentleman of the old school literally; he was everything a teacher should be and a great representative of the profession. I remember him doing my 'stage make up' for the school play in the early 70s - such a professional and dedicated man. Managed to say Hi Sir at a reunion. RIP Sir, thank you.

Mr. Light I will remember for always being a most gentle man and good teacher. I recall he had a green mini van and one day pointed out how women had wider pelvises to allow for child birth. Quite a revelation when you are 13. I was at Stanfield from 1959 to 1963. Michael Tunnicliffe.

He was my art teacher at Stanfields in the 1980s. A lovely man, so effortlessly talented, he made art look so easy! I'm so proud that he was my teacher! My thoughts and prayers go to his family, God Bless Mr Wright xx
