A Few Blog Statistics
For those of you interested in statistics the following list shows the titles of all the posts we have made since the blog started in 2009 and the number of times those pages have been visited (and hopefully read and responded to). Sadly it is not possible to link the posts directly from this list but if you use the ‘Search The Blog’ box to the left with all or even part of the title it should bring that post up for you. Take a quick look at some of the titles and you may well see something of interest which you might have missed earlier. It’s good to see ‘Gypsy Tart’ near the top!

Two Dozen Images that Remind Me of School Days
I have to admit the when I received Barry Warren’s snap of the 51 Bus at Beaulieu I thought there may be little interest from our ‘old boys’. How wrong could I be? It seems to have stirred quite a few memories judging by the response so I thought I would throw together a few more memory joggers from the early days of the School. If you have any of your own, please do send them in for publication and I will add them on as they arrive along with a credit for the contributor.
Thoughts from Peter Redman:
- “I was delighted to discover the CVTHS website a little while ago because my years at the school were my best and most valued school years that I had and I look back on them fondly as they were the years that equipped me for my future career as a successful chemical engineer in a whole career with BP which I enjoyed so much. I really valued Mr Kingsland and his wisdom and advice as well as teachers like Dr Fisk? and others I can’t really remember the names of. The practical nature of the education at the school was so valuable to me in pointing me to a future career. Unfortunately I don’t have any memorabilia or photos of those years. I think my mum probably cleared it all away when I left home. She was that sort of person and didn’t keep anything. Anyway I love remembering names on the egister and reminiscing about the amazing facilities of the school and the teachers and fellow students. Thank you for all your efforts getting this forum up and running. I appreciate it.. “
A few more of the buses which helped us all get to school….
Has anyone still got a bus pass? If so please scan it for us and send it in. Any stories you want to tell about your bus journeys to and from school?
