Geoff Jones

House: Grigg
Years: 1962-1966

Having left School, I studied at St. Lukes College, Exeter and qualified as a P.E. Teacher.
Since then I have taught in Prep Schools and I am currently Deputy Head of Dumpton School in Wimborne, Dorset (England).

My memories of School revolve mostly around sport and the great tussles we had against Saints and Duke'o. I was lucky to play with some really good players in most of the sports, and match days were always special occasions.

My first Head of House at Grigg was Roger Taylor who was a pretty fearsome character. Later Ian Blair was Head of House, and on one occasion he beat about 35 boys in succession for talking in prep! He was, in fact, a good man and I am not sure that he enjoyed the experience at all.

I also remember a terrific dorm fight when we juniors barricaded ourselves in against the combined attack of senior and inter dorms. They eventually broke in and we copped it good and proper before 'Woof' Bartlett came in and restored some semblance of order.

I also remember vividly my first Old Cambrians day when, in the evening, the whole school paraded for the last post in ranks around the main quad. It was one of the most moving moments of my life and one I treasure.
