Slide Rule 1970s Maths with Mr Bibby
Slide Rule 1970s Maths with Mr Bibby
Thanks to David Turner (OC1977) who has shared with us a photograph of his slide rule from his Maths class with Mr Bibby. They had to purchase these at the time, David said ' I was in Alan Bibby’s class and he was an excellent teacher using some very modern techniques at the time. '

Mr Bibby taught at the school for many years, do you remember this piece of equipment or indeed his Maths classes?

We'd love to see what you have from your school days, uniform (a cap maybe?), a lapel pin, certificates or a wonderful memory of school, please send them to
