TEIGN SCHOOL MEMORIES

1935

The photograph to the left was given to the KHS by the late Maurice Sharland and shows what was then known as Kingsteignton Senior School just prior to its opening in 1935.

The school opened its doors to new pupils on 2nd December wit Mr Hugh Hosegood as its first headmaster.

The new school was built as part of a reorganistation of education in the village when a new three tier system of Infants, Junior and Senior schools was introduced.

The former Council School in Sandpath Road became the Junior School and the former Church School became the Church of England Infants' School.

The original photo is so long it was difficult to copy so that the personnel were recognisable. This is the left side of the above picture showing the girl pupils in 1962

 

And here is the right side of the photo showing the boys.

The Jubilee celebrations in Kingsteignton sawTeign School used as the venue for an "It's A Knockout Competition"  with participation from various groups and clubs in the village which attracted a large crowd.

1983

 

Our former webmaster, the late Sheila Yeo, was immensely proud of this photo showing her son Terry Yeo winning the 1500m and setting the school record at Teign School in 1983. The same year he also won the 3000m and set a record, as well as winning the triple jump. Winning all 3 events and setting 2 records meant he won the Victor Ludorum for the best athlete etc.

 

1983 - Teign River Raft Race

 

Teign River Raft Race - Teigngrace to Teignmouth. This race was then an annual event and partipants had to build their own rafts. I think Health & Safety would probably stop this now !

Terry Yeo (right) and Ian Wheaton (left) won the School's Section for Teign School.

 

1984-85

The photo on the left was kindly passed to the KHS by Adrian Heath of Chudleigh and shows a class in the 1984-85 academic year.
