OSLER STREET SCHOOL

Home Page

 

Osler Street Board School opened in 1875 with accommodation for boys, girls and infants. It was reorganised in 1932 into three departments for senior Boys, Senior Girls, and Junior and Infants.

The Senior departments became separate schools in 1945 and the name of the school was changed to Follett Osler County Primary School in 1954. The school closed in 1970.

18th October 2016

 

I have been living here in South Africa for the past 40 years. I have been married to my Husband Alan for 56 years and have two sons and a daughter, six Grandchildren and two Great Grandsons.  So it was such a surprise and delight to come across this photograph of my class at School, 1954 I think?   I remember that we had to make the dresses we are wearing in our needlework class.

 

I am sitting in the front row 6th from the left. My name was Valerie Morris then and I was Class Captain and later became Head Girl.

 

I can’t see my best friend Kathleen Young, as she was, (but we still keep in contact) but I can remember some of the names from that class.  In no particular order – Janet Smith, Jean Drew, Elaine Owen, Doreen Frost, Joan Deakin, Pamela Worrell, Maureen Hawthorn, Pauline Glaze, Ursula Ramshaw, Una Hunt, Marian Scott, Marion Harris, Joan Hunt, Maureen Clarke, Catherine Hanks, Pauline Turner,

Ann Turner, Josephine Williams, Josephine Riley and many more.

 

I wonder where they all are now and if they remember me?

 

My favourite teacher was Miss Dyble and our Headmistress Miss McCloughlin was wonderful.

Memories of Mike Francis

I thought you might be interested in these photos. I believe they are of staff and pupils at Follet Osler school sometime in the early 60’s.

 

The teacher in the class groups is my father, Mr. Francis, a maths teacher.

 

I would be interested to know if you or anyone else has any memories of him.

 

If you know any of these Teachers or Pupils?

Memories of Ian Dempster

I have attached a picture of the school for your use if required.

 

 

 

My memory of Terry Whitehead was of a boy who could do anything when it came to gymnastic moves in PT.

 

I was very overweight and spent much of my time in PT sitting on the wooden horse to hold it down as I never managed to get over it.

 

All the best to my former class mates, I trust you all are enjoying your retirement.

Memories of Bill Curtis

 

I attended Osler St School from 1960 to about 1963, I've noticed an entry from Derek Coley dated 29th November 2012 asking for any information from that time.

 

At that time my name was Bill Hunt and remember Derek quite well. I think the teacher he mentioned was Mr Sunderland and he took 1B for a while; I seem to remember we were a handful and he found us difficult to handle at times and Mr Bowen took over.

 

I wasn't keen on school at the times and avoided it whenever I could something I regretted later.

I started at Osler St in 1B then halfway through term moved to 1A, I spend year two in 2B with Mr Bollen a Welshman and probably the best teacher I ever had.

 

I then moved to 3A under Mr Hughes before leaving halfway through term.

 

I attach a photograph (sorry it's not in the best of nick!) of 1B that would be around 1960/61.

 

Starting top left the names are:

 

 

 

John Shearer, Alan Townsend, Wilfred Dale, Joe Patrick, Bill Hunt (Me!)

Mr Bowen, Cliff Sweet, Peter Brothwood, Ron Bedford, Brian Hopcroft, Bill Payne, Barry Jenkins, Dave Farmer

Brian Wooton, Les Lowe, John Dempsey, Phil Miles, Tony Hart, Bill Hart, Paul Reeves, Paul Delahye

Alan Biggs, Derek Lill, Cliff Morgan, Derek Coley, Pete? Evans, Keith Thompson, Jeff Wali, Austin Cannon, Jeff Burgwin.

 

 

Hope this is of some use

Memories of Dennis Wheatley

My name is Dennis Wheatley, I went to Osler street school, during the war years along with my brothers and sisters.

 

Apart from myself there was Margaret, Eileen, Gordon, and Kenneth. The oldest teacher there was the metal work teacher Mr Rolands, he taught my father in 1908. The head teacher was Mr Vincent and the science and music teacher was a Mr Basil Holt.

 

There was also a Mr Davenport, but I think he was the head teacher of the junior school.

 

To my mind the standard of education was absolutely first class, and I consider myself very lucky to have been to that school. I am 74 this year so I don't suppose anyone remembers me, because I have never had any contact with anyone from my school days.

 

If anyone does remember me and wants to get in touch I would be delighted to here from them.

 

Regards  Den Wheatley

 

Memories of Melvyn Fellows

 

I attended Osler St School both Infants, juniors, and 1st Year Seniors between 1948 and 1955, before being relocated to Bartley Green, and do quite vividly remember some of the teachers.

Mrs Ray was, I believe one of the Infants Teachers, she was I seem to remember a nice Lady.

Among other teachers of the time were, Mr Phipps ( he was the Head ), Mr Sara ( PE ), and a Mr Enstone.

Teacher pupil relationship was nothing like it is now, these people were very strict, and punishment was dealt out on a daily basis.

As a young person you had a lot of respect for the teachers, and you dare not step out of line!

Both my brothers also attended the school previous to myself.

Memories of Colin Mytton

 

The photo from Brian Crisp of the four teachers brought back many memories for me as I was taught by all of them

at some stage or other.

 

In 1966 I was in the second year and 2A and 2B classrooms were at the 'annexe' which is the two small flat roofed buildings in St. Vincent Street opposite the shops.

 

I was in 2A, which was Mr Wilf Brentons class. He was a Cornishman so had a strange accent to us and he always wore a three-piece check suite.

 

Next-door was Mr Parchment who took 2B but sometimes covered for Mr Brenton.

 

Next door to the block was the woodwork building, which was in the care of Mr Doble. He always wore corduroy trousers with braces and drove a Hillman Imp estate.

 

Finally, Mr Jones, who took us for art although he did have his own class, which was a first year class 1A I think. He walked with a limp, which was as a result of injuries from the war.

 

I left Osler in 1969 my last teacher, in 4A, being Mr Marsh who drove one of those lovely VW camper vans.

 

Thanks Mac for the platform to share our memories of quite a unique area.

My friends were Clifford Sweet, Clifford Morgan, I remember someone whose surname was Priest, another surname was or first name was Dale, there was also a peter. ???

 

Does anyone have any memories or photographs of the school between 1960-64 please?

This is Terry Richards, I'm bottom row, first from the left.

The teacher is Mr. Padstone. I also recognize: Alan Atkinson, Roy Norris, Roy Haycock. I was at Osler Street for infants, juniors and maybe one year of seniors.

 

I also see Keith Norgrove and Raymond Read. If I remember correctly, they were cousins.

 

I was looking on the internet on Sunday last and brought up Follett Osler, and was extremely delighted when a photo of my wife and her gang appeared; my wife’s maiden name is Vera Wheeler.

 

We would be over the moon to make contact with any or all of the group. We live in Elizabeth Downs, South Australia, which is a suburb of Adelaide.

I've just spotted myself on one of your new Osler Street school class photos!

 

I'm front row, third in from the right, Lynn Hazel Crabtree, aged 5yrs. I can also identify 2 other pupils for you; Middle row, sixth from the left, by our teacher’s shoulder is Madhuban Mistry (my best friend);

Then top row, second from the left is Gina, whose parents had a fish & chip shop at the top of Clark Street.

 

My family ran the corner shop (known as Adey's because my Nan's name was Adelaide) at 61 Clark Street, directly opposite The Follett Osler school entrance

 

 

 

I have attached a couple of photographs. The first is a standard five class photo taken circa 1918 and Maud Mary Forge (my aunt) is the girl on the extreme left on the front row at the tender age of 9 or 10 years.

 

  The second is of the Osler Street School football team of 1926 and my father William James Forge is a 14 year old right half back and is standing second from the right of the photo.

My name is Kathleen Essex (nee Ansell) and I attended Follett Osler between 1956 to 1962. I have two sons and two grandchildren, oh! and a little Miniature Schnauzer called Taila.

Does anyone remember me, on looking on the site I have seen a class photo and on the front row is my sister Eileen who is now deceased. I can remember the Maths teacher Mrs. Rheinstein.

 I lived at 12/19 Osler Street until 1962.

 Thank you.

Many thanks to  Betty Rooke for providing further names to this photograph

 

 

I am writing on behalf of my mother Betty Rooke (nee Hammon) who appears in the 1931 Olsler Street school photograph on your website.

 

Of the other girls appearing in the picture she remembers:

 

Betty Hammon:          Centre at the rear, in front of the girl with trident.

Dorothy Drew:            Far left, front row

Ivy Hardy:                    Far right, second row.

Perl Ball:                     Far right front row

Christine Collins:       2nd from left second row.

Nora Riley:                 3rd from left, second row.

Pat Johnson:              2nd from right 2nd row

Beryl ?:                       Back row to left of the girl with trident

 

 

 

Other than that she says she remembers she was representing “the League of Nations” (possibly it was Empire Day?) and had to deliver a speech despite having a bad throat and losing her voice!

Mom also added that Nora Riley was killed along with the rest of family in Friston Street during a bombing raid in WWII.

That's all she recalls off the top of her head.

 

I was on the Internet searching my old school and came across Follet Osler-  Wow!

 

I am so pleased that the school has never been forgotten, as I went there when I was 12/13 yrs old 1971/72.

  

I remember Mr. Jones, the Art teacher, also Mr. Marsh, who was quite old when I was there and I remember him having a walking stick and struggling with the stairs; also the head mistress Mrs Haywood and I think the head master was Mr Lease. I was there when Ladywood Comp was built and we use to go between the 2 schools for lessons, then came that awful day when Follet Osler closed down for good, I was so sad.

 

Then Ladywood Comp, it was for us pupils of the great Follet Osler, my name at the time was Norreena Bill, my sister who also went there was Petrina Bill she is now Petrina Cooke and I am now Norreena Ho, we now live in Staffordshire. As kids we lived in Ladywood and I would like to hear from anyone who was at Follet Osler the same time as us, my friends at the time were Gillian Bassinger, April Cotton, twins Julie and Jean McCartney, Mary Dowdell, Malcolm Fenley, Elvis Hopkins, Jacky Carter, Beverly Brown - wondering where they are now?

I am enclosing a school photo from 1949  

Albert

The photo on the left is, I seem to recall, from 1959 when I was in my penultimate year at Follett Osler.  I am 3rd from the right in the front row with, I think, Mr Marsh in the centre of the same row.

 

He was our geography teacher and was in the RAF in WW11.  The tall boy in the middle of the back row is Logan.

 

 I left the school at 15 years old in April 1960 and went straight into work as a machine setter operator in Aston.  Since then I have moved to Scotland in 1981.  I had been a climber/mountaineer for a number of years and wanted to live in the mountains.  I now live near Aviemore and have recently retired as a health and safety practitioner.

 

Regards, Joe Quinn

Wondered if any information on pupils from 1964 – 1967 (Osler Street School) can’t seem to find any information at all.

 

Looking for Anita Bryant, Ann Simms, Pearl Carter. Michael Plant and Donald Plant.

 

Would be grateful for any information at all.

Hello, I noticed this photo on your website of Osler Street School in 1957.

I picked out my dad straight away, he is middle row first on the left Paul Ventham. When I showed it him he was trying to remember all the names of he’s fellow pupils.

The question marks are one’s he couldn’t remember - can anyone help out or do they remember my dad.

 

Simon Ventham

 

Here's an old school photo that was sent to me by Albert Moulsdale some time ago, it is not in the best of condition as you can see, but hopefully the usual suspects will be able to identify themselves, CLASS 2A, about 1959 with 'Billy Brenton, apologies if I have already sent this to you, or you have a better copy (does anyone?), and can anyone do a full identity check?

 

The photo from Dave Marsh of our class (2A approx 1959), here is a complete list of the names of all the boys.....

 

Back row, left to right.....Brian Wilcox, John Copeland, Les Mytton, Robert Walker, Ian Dempster, John England, Ian Henderson, Albert Moulsdale, Michael Firkin, John Stokes, Michael Hawthorn.

 

Middle Row.....Dennis Fidler, Alan Meakin, Gerald Rigby, Barry Harrington, David Scott, Ian Marshall, Malcolm Wade, Jimmy George, David Hollingsworth, John Griffoths, Robert Morrish, Robert Lacey.

 

Front Row.....Rodney Ashford, Tony Memory, John Hart, David Marsh, George Biggs, Alan Tirapani, Mr Brenton, David Burness, David Hynett, Kenny Chapman, Normen Horden, Terry Evans, Carl Strawford.

 

Seated on floor, Left....Michael Quinn (face obscured)........Right (head just visible) Terry Whitehead.

 

I can't take the credit for knowing all of the names.  I remembered about two thirds.  When I met up with David Burness, a while back, he supplied the photo and the list of names.

 

Would be good to get them all together for one of Albert’s reunions,

 

Best wishes

 

David

Two certificates from John Blower

 

I was one of the final pupils who attended Osler Street School, when it had been reopened and was being used as an annex to the New Ladywood Comprehensive.

 

From my memories there were three teachers who came out of retirement when the school reopened, they were Mr. Jones, who took us for Art; Mr. Marsh, who took us for French, he had an impressive beard then and Mr. Davies, who took us for Religious Education.

 

From 1974, when I moved up to the Big School, we used to walk up to the Follet, or middle school as it was called, for science and then the middle years of our education, 77, 78, we were based there before moving back to the big building for our final two years in education.

 

I remember when the school reopened, Mr. Jones painted a huge phoenix rising from the ashes on the wall behind the stage in the main hall, I think he really must have loved the building.

 

At the time of demolition I was living in Leslie Road, and watched it being demolished for the new Wimpy housing estate and I must admit I cried just at the thought of that lovely painting on the wall being destroyed.

 

 I loved my time there and when I look at the new fangled concrete builds now I think back to the Follet ...they sure don’t make them like that no more

I came across the site of old Ladywood schools.

 

In the Osler Street school section there is a letter from Joe Brown, who lived at 4a Norwood Villas, Waterworks Road. Well I lived at 4 Norwood Villas and Joe’s younger brother Dennis was my best man, 51 years ago. The last I heard of Joe was he had emigrated to Australia with Joe’s elder brother Harold.

 

Joe was that little bit older than me, so his friends were not mine. Dennis was my friend. Every Sunday we would go swimming at Monument Road baths, but Dennis was a bit of a devil for getting up at 8.0am, so he used to tie a string to his toe, put the string through the window, we would come along and tug on the string to wake him up.

 

I think Joe may be wrong saying Mr Rigby was the Music Teacher. Mr Rigby was the metal work teacher and Mr Holt was the science and music teacher (I think).

 

I can remember during the war, the City of Birmingham Orchestra playing in the school hall. We used to play football along the roads to school Harold Road, Eldon Road, there were very few cars then. Occasionally Mr Davenport, walking on his way to school, would stop us but once out of sight out came the tennis ball and we would carry on playing.

 

One final memory on Norwood Villas, the lofts were interconnected and we would tell Betty, who lived at No 6, that the house was haunted. Dennis and I would go in the loft and we would make ghostly noises, whether she believed it or not, we had great fun doing it.

 

I would love Joe to get in touch with me

We visited different schools in the area to play the game.  We all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Your website caught my attention and found it very interesting although not born in Ladywood I had several connections from around 1950. I was born in Edgbaston, my father was the verger of St James Church and caretaker of  St Luke’s School in Summer Road.

 

I went to Osler Street Junior School for the last term before going into the senior girls. At some point during these years the school was renamed The Follett Osler County Modern. I have a school day out photo taken at Hampton Court Palace date I would think around 1955.   I am on the right of the picture my face is on the left side of the notice board behind the girl with the double row of buttons on her coat.  I can only remember my friends name at the time Doris Glover.

I went to work at Ryland Garage about 1958 and was a bridesmaid to the other office member of staff Barbara when she married Peter Martin, a mechanic for Ryland Garage.   I noticed a Nick Cook sent you a story and said he worked at Ryland Garage. I don't remember anyone’s name I was there about 2 years. 

 

In 1960 I met a man called John Baume who was a proprietor at the newsagents shop just inside Monument Road at the Ivy Bush. I married him in 1962 and lived at the shop until his death in 1964 when I left the area and eventually moved away from Birmingham. 

 

Hope the school photo is of interest to your readers and someone recognises themselves

Then Irene Lowe holding the bucket bag. Sorry don't know the pilot. However the girl next to him with a scarf on is Maureen Richards.

The others are not known.

 

The destination is also not known, but it may have just been a trip to Elmdon the way they are dressed.

 

Thanks to Maureen Rudge for the information

Memories of Joe Brown

 

I went to Osler Street School in 1938   Left there to go to Burberry Street  down near Hockley Brook /Farm Street area,  and was living in Nursery Road .


I went to the Bell Heath camp and had a good time there, apart from the cross country runs.


While at Osler Street, I vividly recall a teacher named  Mr. Rigby, who took our music class, I think, and he played a violin at class and plucked on the strings  ..... he made us laugh a lot.

 

One of my fonder memories was going to the school playing grounds during school times on a double decker bus.   The playing fields were in Richmond Hill Road, Harborne.  I think they were also known as the Police Fields. There was a building there, which had something to do with the Police. They held a giant bonfire there on Guy Fawkes Night and dished out plenty of really good food.


Getting back to the bus trip, it loaded up in Clark Street and went down the hill to Icknield Port Road and turned right up to Monument Road and then left, up to the Ivy Bush on Hagley Road and across to Chad Road, then down past the White Swan and forked left up to the playing fields into Richmond Hill Road.


They were great days indeed.........


Another great memory was waiting till the girls came out into Clark Street once a week after cooking classes and we would walk home with them and sample some of the baking efforts as we went . . . I think when we realised that we had eaten all we were allowed, us boys would slope off to play Knock Down Cards  or a game of marbles and the girls would be forgotten about till next week.

 

The time I am talking about would have been 1938. I lived in Rann Street at that time. I later lived in Waterworks Road in Norwood Villas No 4a.

 

Daily Mail boots, dripping slices for playtime and metalwork classes, I recall well.

 

I then had to go to Burberry Street and start woodwork till we were evacuated on 1st September by train from Hockley Station.

 

 

 

My name is Gary Cox,

 

I have been looking through your website over the past few days. My father, Michael Cox, attended Osler Street Secondary Modern School, leaving in March 1950.

I was interested to see that you have a picture of my father’s brother, Malcolm on the site.

 

I noticed that you had Scholars Leaving Certificates on the site, and I was wondering if you want to put my fathers certificate on.

 

He lived in Parker Street with Malcolm, his mother and father. His grandparents lived in Monument Road, along with his Great Grandparents.

 

Regards,

Gary

 

Memories of Dennis Wheatley

My name is Dennis Wheatley, I went to Osler street school, during the war years along with my brothers and sisters.

 

Apart from myself there was Margaret, Eileen, Gordon, and Kenneth. The oldest teacher there was the metal work teacher Mr Rolands, he taught my father in 1908. The head teacher was Mr Vincent and the science and music teacher was a Mr Basil Holt.

 

There was also a Mr Davenport, but I think he was the head teacher of the junior school.

 

To my mind the standard of education was absolutely first class, and I consider myself very lucky to have been to that school. I am 74 this year so I don't suppose anyone remembers me, because I have never had any contact with anyone from my school days.

 

If anyone does remember me and wants to get in touch I would be delighted to here from them.

 

Memories of Melvyn Fellows

I attended Osler St School both Infants, juniors, and 1st Year Seniors between 1948 and 1955, before being relocated to Bartley Green, and do quite vividly remember some of the teachers.

Mrs Ray was, I believe one of the Infants Teachers, she was I seem to remember a nice Lady.

Among other teachers of the time were, Mr Phipps ( he was the Head ), Mr Sara ( PE ), and a Mr Enstone.

Teacher pupil relationship was nothing like it is now, these people were very strict, and punishment was dealt out on a daily basis.

As a young person you had a lot of respect for the teachers, and you dare not step out of line!

Both my brothers also attended the school previous to myself.

 

ps  A Great Web Site

 

Memories of Colin Mytton

The photo from Brian Crisp of the four teachers brought back many memories for me as I was taught by all of them at some stage or other.

 

In 1966 I was in the second year and 2A and 2B classrooms were at the 'annexe' which is the two small flat roofed buildings in St. Vincent Street opposite the shops.

 

I was in 2A, which was Mr Wilf Brenton's class. He was a Cornishman so had a strange accent to us and he always wore a three-piece check suite.

 

Next-door was Mr Parchment who took 2B but sometimes covered for Mr Brenton.

 

Next door to the block was the woodwork building, which was in the care of Mr Doble. He always wore corduroy trousers with braces and drove a Hillman Imp estate.

 

Finally, Mr Jones, who took us for art although he did have his own class, which was a first year class 1A I think. He walked with a limp, which was as a result of injuries from the war.

 

I left Osler in 1969 my last teacher, in 4A, being Mr Marsh who drove one of those lovely VW camper vans.

 

Thanks Mac for the platform to share our memories of quite a unique area.

 

Long live Ladywood

 

Colin Mytton, 103 Shakespeare Road, 1955 - 1968(with the bulldozers at the door!)

I attended Osler Street school with may happy memories and went on to be an Apprentice for Bellis & Morcom and ended up a Foreman in the 'Tubine Shop' where I was responsible for the assembly of Nordberg Crushers. I met my future wife  Yvonne at Bellis's and am, still married after 38 years.

 

I came across and old school photo of the winning Osler Street Cricket Team dating 1963 where we won the Birmingham Schools Cricket Intermediate Shield. I hope you find it interesting.

Finally, thank you for giving me the opportunity to contribute to your site and say hello to anyone who remembers me!

Hi Mac,

 

Great to see that old photo on the front of the website. I have emailed Dave Marsh. We have been in touch since about our second or third school reunion.

 

I am writing mainly to explain why we were on that "camp". It wasn't a school event. We were in the second year and one day Bill Brenton announced that our class (2A) had been chosen to go on this outward bound holiday for being of "exemplary behaviour". You can imagine how proud we all felt. The truth was, however, that we qualified simply as an inner city class. I don't know which body organised it, but it was obviously to get some kids out into the fresh air for a while. It was at Bell Heath (near Belbroughton) and when I last looked about 4 years ago, it was still there. We went in March 1960 and were there for three weeks. We had a great time. we had lessons of course but just imagine, we were out in the country!

 

We made spears, bows and arrows, rifles and all sorts. We had cross country races and did a census of cars outside the Manchester Inn! (Not one of the most exciting pastimes).  We lived in wooden lodges, slept in dormitories AND had showers.

 

I went the whole three weeks without a shower! This was because I had my right leg in plaster of paris from the ankle to the hip, due to a chipped tibia playing football. When everyone else had to walk anywhere, such as to church at Fairfield, I got a lift in the Heads car (Mr Knox I think). We had visits to all sorts of places, like Bromsgrove, Stourbridge etc. We visited a working scythe factory called Nashes, which was in Belbroughton, a lost industry. We had our first, and as I recall only, sex lesson! We found these frogs stuck together in a pond!

 

We then bombarded Mr Brenton to explain what was going on ha ha! Part way through the holiday, parents were allowed to visit. A bit difficult for some, as not many folk had cars, and it was not on a bus route. My Mom and Dad paid a friend of a friend to drive them there. One kid, Rodney Ashford (of Ashfords coal yard on Icknield Port road, whose family did have a car) had a food hamper brought him. That was the first experience for some of us to taste melon! As I recall it was a bit of a disappointment. A bit like cucumber we thought. The holiday was not without drama. Robert Morrish fell and broke his leg. We heard it snap!

 

Ugh!! He was shipped off to Bromsgrove cottage hospital. I don't think he returned.....to the camp I mean. He must have returned from the hospital as he has been to a couple of reunions!

 

No doubt other kids will have their memories, and maybe some might write in.

 

Keep up the good work, Mac.

I found this old photo of two teachers from Follett Osler Girls School, the teacher on the left was Mrs Davies…the one on the right was Miss McKenzie.

 

I think the year was 1954, but I could be a year out either way. The trip was to a farm and the Clent Hills. It’s hard to believe these days but the trip came about after one of the teachers was amazed to learn that there were some girls who had never seen a cow.

 

It was put right and the full procedure of up-to-date mechanical milking was shown first hand at a wonderful dairy farm.

Pauline
