 Comments: 1964 -70
just had a thorough look through the web site and there are a few names I recognise but can't put a face to.Those old rugby photos brought back some memories. I'm second from the front in the lineout, my brother Gwyn is second from the back, and I think Tom Parry is at the back.

I've been living in Australia since 1974, shortly after finishing my apprenticeship at BP Llandarcy, and looking at this site was great.

If anyone would like to contact me my address is

Best wishes to everyone

 Name: Arwel Jones
 Who: New to Sandfields
 Comments: Did not attend Sandfields but was touring with my school rugby team from London in about 1962-63 (ish) and played against Sandfields. I would have been 15-16 (ish). It was bitter cold on the day we played Sandfields and we lost 42-0 all points being scored in the first half. The wind kept Sandfields out of our half in the second half!! Does anyone there remember this event? My school was Brook House in Clapton North East London. I stayed with one of the lads from Sandfields. Names have faded now but his parents looked after me a treat. When I visit Wales (my birthplace) I alway look across from the M4 with fond memories of that freezing cold day and the snow flurries blowing in from the sea. Character building stuff! I would be very interested to hear from anyone who was there on the day or can remember the visit.

 Comments: Can't say all memories of Sandfields Comprehensive School were the happiest although it did have its moments.
Sandfields, in spite of its infamy, has produced some remarkable people and can be very proud of its achievements against overwhelming odds.
I am proud to say I was a member of Sandfields Comprehensive School and I commend all the teachers I had the privilege of being taught by.
Looking forward to the reunion in June

 Who: Former Pupil
 Comments: Left Sandfields in Sept 74 to join RN. Spent 23 years in seeing some exotic and some not so exotic parts of the world. Eventually leaving when I was 40. I am now The Finance Manager for the Estates Department at the University of Portsmouth and in my final year of Chartered Management Accountants exams. Biggest regret? Not working to the best of my abilities at school and not standing up to the bullying, resulting in a long hard slog to get to where I am at present. best Memory? Going to Orchestra on Friday nights at Neath Grammar, and being in the production of Oliver in 1972 Hope to attend the re-union on 28th June. As a matter of interest does the school song stull get sung? I think it was called Canaf Foliant. Written by the Head of Music at the time, Geoff Francis......I can still remember the tune, but alas not the words.

 Comments: I enjoyed my time at SCS (1977-82). And also when I wasn’t there, because even though I was in tech, I played rugby for the senior team on a Saturday morning (we nearly always lost!) & then we all went to `The Amazon pub’ afterwards. Went to PTCFE (Afan College) when I left SCS & got an OND Elec. Eng. Did 6 months in Portsmouth Poly, attempting to study HND in Elec. Eng. before being kicked out (attendance not too good!). Returned to WGIHE & got HND in CAD.
I’m now an E/I Design Engineer with a Swansea based Engineering consultants firm, so I travel a bit in South West Wales. I’m married with 2 lovely daughters aged 8 & 5. I’m also Hon. Sec. of Aberavon Quins RFC & I still `try’ to play rugby, although it takes longer to recover from the bumps & bruises!!

Just like to say hi & thanks to some of the teachers whom I can remember -

Mr Winfield - Headmaster
Mr Doyle – Woodwork (Deputy Head)
Mrs Stubbs – English (always had different coloured hair every week! - reminded me of Mrs Slocombe from `Are you being served’!)
Mr Alvo Davies – Maths
Mr Clive Williams – Careers
Mr Foley – Metalwork (is he still taking the tablets? ha ha)
Mr Burgess – RE
Mrs `Titch’ Williams – French (Can’t remember her first name. She really hated us boys. Don’t know why.)
Mrs Cathy Richards – English (Will she ever know why I sat at the front of the class all the time?? God she was/is sexy!! Should I be admitting this??)
Mrs Janice Lewis (nee Thomas?) – Didn’t teach me, but she was nice to talk to. And still is!!)
Mr Clive Lewis – French (great teacher)
Mr Paul Farrow – Games (great teacher. Mind you, all the games teachers were good. Ran a red light while taking me to casualty for stitches, when I cut my leg open playing rugby.)
Mr Roland Evans – RE + Games (great teacher. How could someone like him teach RE. He was your typical man – butch, rugged, BIG – an animal!! Not a bible basher!! & I mean that as a compliment Sir!!)
Mr Roy Woodward – Games (best games teacher. Inspired me to play rugby. Thanks Sir. I’m still enjoying!! Also took me for gymnastics.)

Also some nicknames of teachers, but I can’t remember their real names
Tojo – (not known)
Psycho – (not known)
Dopey Dora – (Welsh)
Spitfire – (Welsh)
Lanky Howard – (Tech. Drawing)
Weedy – (Gardening? Did we have gardening lessons?)

I have a picture of Form 3C, which I will send to this site asap. See if there is anybody you know.

Sorry but I could write an essay here. If anyone wishes to contact me, to say hi or anything else my email is –

Best Regards
