A TEDDY HALL FIFTEEN
by Jim Golland
I went to St Edmund Hall, Oxford, after the war in 1946, took my degree in English in 1948 and my teaching diploma there in 1949.
After a spell at a school in Yorkshire, I arrived at Harrow County in April 1954. For the next 21 years, a steady stream of pupils found their way from Gayton Road to my old college, nearly two thirds of them to read English. . Pure nepotism, of course.
The first was Jim Smith, with an Open Scholarship in English in 1956 for 1957
(1st Class degree in 1960). Then in chronological order (if I have the dates right) came the following (with apologies for faulty memory and omissions):
1961 G R J Morris (English)
1961 Owen, M J (English
1962 Cowling N R (Open Schol in English)
1963 Combie, David (Place to read English)
1964 Butcher, M (Open Schol in English); 1st Cl. 1967;
1964 Morris D J (PPE)
1966 Slade, Raymond John (Exhibition in Physics). (In 1995 he was Head of Trinity School, Belvedere [Kent?]
1967/8 Kenner S A (Economics)
1968 Gilbert, Brian (Open Scholarship in English)
1969/70 D R Lerner (PPE)
1971 Logan J A (PPE)
1971: Jones, Barry (Open Exhibition in ? Biology)
1974 Farrow D (Open Exhibition in English)
1974: Hardy, M W (English)
There may well be others whom I have mislaid. In the same period, at least 16 went to Peterhouse, Cambridge.
After Jim Golland left Harrow County, in 1975, came number 16:
1978: Rowe, Nick (PPE - Open Exhibition)
