"...I attended SCTS from 1953 to July 1960. Attached are some photographs which I took ...showing the new buildings rising from the ground. Also a couple of pictures of classmates taken in Burslem Park in 1959 or 1960.
Like many other ex pupils I went into teacher training and returned to the city to teach technical subjects for all my working life. Intially called Handicrafts, and then Technology, then Craft, Design & Technology and latterly Design & Technology this area of education has changed greatly over the years. The depth of fine craftsman's skills taught by messrs Taylor & George in the 1950's have alas gone - we now have greater breadth and less depth in the subject. Dare I say the phrase "Jack of all trades - master of none" comes to mind!"
