David Coy writes about Bill Rainforth
"Bill Rainforth. When I was on the staff 1967-70, Bill was a good pal and valued colleague. I didn't realise he was as much as 10 years older than me. One time, there was concern in the staffroom that PGS would become a Comprehensive School with ten streams instead of just three. Bill advised that it was OK teaching "remedial" classes - you developed lots of tools / techniques and could make good progress with the students BUT the trouble was, "if you teach the remedial classes for too long, you become remedial yourself!!"
RIP Bill, David"
