How long have you worked at Calderstones?
What changes have you see to the school?
Too many to list but all for the better. New technology has been a big influence I had not even seen a computer when I began my teaching career now all our class rooms have interactive boards digital projectors and internet access
Over £12 million pounds has been spent in recent years improving the fabric of the school. Calderstones has always had fantastic staff and pupils now we have fantastic facilities to match.
What famous past pupils are there?
Quite a lot. If you look on the display board outside Q4 you will see a list of some of our more famous past pupils. However Les Dennis was actually called Les Heseltine when he was a pupil Dennis is his stage name. The memorial boards are for the 69 former pupils of the school who lost their lives in the Second World War
Do you like the school buildings and working here?
Our school facilities are second to none. We have a swimming pool, dance room, drama room, sports hall, fitness suite, two gymnasiums, etc. etc. All our buildings are in excellent condition which is really great considering that some were built back in 1846!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my career at Calderstones School. A school is not a building it is the people inside it who make it a good school. Calderstones is a great school filled with pupils who want to learn and staff who want to support their learning. All our pupils get along with each other really well and the same can be said of our staff teaching and non- teaching
