Thanks Mr Bridge for being such a fantastic English teacher and fostering my love of all things word-related. After leaving school I went on to achieve a BA in English Literature and First Class Honours in Journalism. Your English class showed me there was something I was good at after all.
Yvonne had that rare ability to be tough but still respected and really well liked. She taught me accounting in the 7th form and she showed me the value of a strong work ethic: you did not want to turn up to class without having done your homework! Yvonne is someone who I keep in contact with even today.
