The woodwork teacher I remember was Mr Tovey (I think that is right). When I went for 11 plus he supervised the exam for my group then was my first year teacher at the school. . He stood out as not wearing a gown. I guess he was a commoner, like me. A great bloke. I remember carving a candle stick in woodwork. When I drilled a hole down through it it came out through the side which he helped me skilfully to disguise.
