I taught at Swinton Bridge from 1973 until 1979. It was my first teaching post and I loved it there . The children I taught were brilliant if any are reading this. Richard Drury

Richard Drury: as mentioned previously I taught at the Swinton Bridge from September 1973 until April 1979. Mrs Ingham was my headmistress when I first arrived and then Mrs. Gibson. It was a smashing school and taught there with my lifelong friend Neil Boswell, he came a coupe of years after I started. Sadly he is no longer with us.

I attended Swinton Bridge in the late sixties. Had my best years of schooling there. I only remember one teacher by the name of Mrs Collins. Leaving said school I moved on to Swinton Comprehensive until 68. Sad to see the school has gone.
