Ron Wood’s Schoolday Memories

Ron Wood was uniquely placed to write about the history of Brightwell School, as he had sat on both sides of the teacher’s desk. In his retirement, he wrote several articles for The Villager on life first as a pupil, then as a teacher. He also had vivid memories of life outside the classroom.
