There have been some visible changes to the building site in March. Last Monday the concrete base was poured: 45 cement lorries worth of concrete poured, with a lorry arriving on site every 12 minutes. A large crane arrived on site yesterday and has begun to unload the timber frame of the building. The frame will begin to go up over the Easter holidays and the site will look very different when the pupils return for the Trinity term.

The headline is a quote from a number of the rugby coaching staff as they watched the Sheffield senior team win the coveted inter-house rugby trophy for this year. The boys had spent many practice sessions reminding themselves of the tactical differences between Sevens and the 15 man game they had been playing all term.
I had left the mission organisation Open Doors in January 1983 and had taken a series of temporary teaching posts when I applied to the advert placed in TES for a post at the school, as a replacement for Bill. So with no experience of independent education and cause of much consternation in the common room of the comprehensive I was teaching at, I migrated from South Wales with Ros, Philip, and with Natasha not quite with us, we arrived at the school in the August 1983

Mrs. Shirley Floyd December 2011.
Sheffield followed a similar design to those of the other houses at Kingham Hill. The purpose being a home for 30 boys and provide a full family life. Its not surprising then this concept governed the internal design of the house, and its supervision. Sheffield consisted of three large rooms downstairs. Playroom, dining room, living room and a kitchen; then the smaller rooms, superintendent's office, bathroom, washroom a boot room and the toilets. Upstairs there were three large dormitories for the boys; also bedrooms for staff and a night toilet and laundry room. If was not long before the staff in the homes were referred to as house parents, the term of house superintendent was consigned to our history book.
“If we open up a quarrel between the past and the present, then we will find that we have lost the future.”
“What you do not put in you can not take out.”
Over this past year working on our Schooldays website I have been constantly reminded one way or another of these two Quotations made by two of my mentors:
Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill 1874 – 1965
& Edward Craig Cooper 1912- 2003.
(Most of you reading this will know one of these quotes very well)
