I was at Newbattle 1968-9. Lots of lovely memories of playing pooh bulbs, sledding on tin trays in the snow and having my basic laziness overwhelmed by a terrific (in both senses) teaching staff.
Currently I live in Chadwell Heath, Essex
Were it not for Newbattle Abbey, I would have had neither the determination, nor the confidence, to have applied to attend university and would not have gained my degrees. These gave me confidence and qualifications which led to a teaching (FE & HE) career before moving into assessment for an examining body and being a local councillor.
