Re: That name change still puzzles me

Quite right!
"Keighley School" it was until at least summer 1965, when I left.

Re: That name change still puzzles me

Absolutely bang on there Cedrick. That 'Keighley School' name smacked of confusion and indecision. Joe Watthey must have had palpitations about it all before doing a runner to Leicestershire! It's almost as if they said 'lets have a temporary name while we think of something better'.

Re: That name change still puzzles me

I seem to recall that when names for the new school were being discussed, one serious proposal was 'Miles Gale School' after one of the founders.

Years at KBGS e.g. 1958-1964 (optional) brianmoate@hotmail.com

Re: That name change still puzzles me

As I recall, the school continued to be called Keighley School until both it and KGGS were renamed Oakbank and Greenhead. Was this when they became Comps? Or was it when they started to become co-ed?
