In 1978, Mr Peacock had a brush painted A35, Mr Carruthers a pale blue Minor Traveller, Jones the Head a Brooklands green Princess and Miss Big Tits Down a red 120Y. Miss Brown had a tawny bronze 1973 Escort and she was lovely.
In 1980, Mr Wadley had a Datsun 180B estate, Mrs Hewitt (Chewit) a pale yellow Golf, Mr McGrady a Morris 1000 and Saunders the Head, a Gold Renault 20TX. Miss Lewis had a Chevette saloon, a car that suited her personality well. Mrs Clarke (Clanker) had an orange Capri II 2.0GL.
In 1984, Mr Good (goody two shoes) the Head has an Imp and Mr Brydenbook (handbag) a Cortina Mark 3 1300 4 door on an M plate. Mr Gardner had a Scimitar, Mr Howe (Snail) a Lada 1200 Estate and Miss Butler a yellow 1978 120A Cherry. Mr Mucklejohn (teapot) had a 928, a Metro and a 500SEL with some ghastly AMG/ Lorinser type ‘improvements’.

My memories from secondary school are on page 3 (written in 2015!) but the thread revival has got me thinking about middle school (1993-98).

My first teacher there confused everyone as she was Miss Hayward at induction day but got married over the holidays and became Mrs Zdyrko, which of course 7-year olds found impossible to spell. Anyway, her hubby apparently had quite a collection of cars and she'd often turn up in something different. I remember a Renault Savanna, a white XR3i cabrio and a rusty Datsun Urvan camper.

 

Others I remember:
Mrs Templeman: green Escort (L284 JBF - why the hell can I remember that when I can't remember what I had for breakfast this morning?)

Miss Monkman: blue Mini City, later traded in for a new Polo IIRC. Her partner had a Mini Cooper.

Mr Collins: Orion (not sure what mark it's called but it was the same generation as Mrs T's Escort)

Mr Marlow (caretaker): Skoda Felicia

Mr Treen (head): grey Volvo 440

Mrs Hawkin (deputy head - all the kids called her Mrs Hawkins and she gave up correcting them): Vauxhall Nova

Mrs Mayhew (not a teacher, some sort of teaching assistant I think): Peugeot 505 estate

Mrs McNiece (bursar): red Cavalier convertible (she lived opposite the school so she didn't drive it to work)

 

Edit: my mind might be playing tricks on me (this was 25 years ago after all). Now I don't think it was Mrs Zdyrko who had the Savanna and Urvan but another teacher who covered while she was on maternity leave. The XR3 definitely belonged to Mr Zdyrko though and I don't think he'd let her drive it in the rain.

May have popped this into the thread earlier but as I only finished school 6 years ago the only memory I have of shite teacher motors are..

 

(England) Mrs. Jones with her G-reg Mk4 Civic, I remember actively questioning her about it and she seemed to love it (I was only 11)

 

(Ireland) Mr. Devin had a late 90s Megane van, looked like a farmyard inside, covered in muck, dust and hay.

Just a few from secondary school, which was 1988-92 for me.

One of the deputy heads had a tatty old early 70s mini which was about as reliable as the current government. It was regularly seen being push started by about a dozen 4th and 5th years by pushing it along the service road that we had on school. At least one pupil wouldn't be ready for the bump each time and ended up flat on their arse.

Art teacher had a povvo spec Panda which the handbrake never worked on, so it often ended up at the wrong end of the car park, sometimes by itself, sometimes with help.
Geography teacher had a new Carlton 3000 estate which looked the absolute bollocks and I got a lift home in once. Also got a lift home in the Technology teacher's Orion Ghia once too, and was very impressed with the fuel computer. Would never be allowed these days. (the lift, not the fuel computer..)

Other highlights were the rather horsey (both in interest and looks) english teacher who had a S3 SWB landrover, and the utter twat of an english teacher who I had, who had an utterly fucked Morris Ital in baby-shit brown. I think a lot of my hatred for Marinas and Itals comes from association with that berk.

Most of the other vehicles were random 80's tat which was unremarkable at the time, but would almost all be appreciating in value if still around now.

More teachers and vehicles cone flooding back...

Around '99 I was back in Belgium. I began attending some form of college, but it weird set up we were treated like school children rather than as young adults like in the UK. The original building was a big U-shaped building but we only occupied 25% of the building, the rest was a completely different and posher school but under the same name.

The mechnics/electrics section was us, we had our own section, entrance but were completely locked away from the other, bigger and nicer section. I'd never ventured into that section more than the reception.

The headmaster of our part of the college was a very quiet and slight man (think Mr Burns from Simpsons) his office looked as if it had preserved from the 1960s, everything was clean and functional, no modern technology. He seemed to have very little to do with the real day to day running of the college and even less with the kids. He rarely ever spoke to us.

He drove a very early Citroen Xsara in some light blue colour if I remember rightly, always parked right outside his office window which was incidently right next to the main gates (which we often climbed over to get out if we wanted to skip classes) I think he had some sort of older Peugeot before that, possibly a 309.

Another French teacher, Monsieur Gerard (1 of 3 Monsieur Gerards in the college) drive a Mk3 Honda Accord in Black with Black leather. He obviously wasn't high enough in the hierarchy to able to park by the college so parked in the street as did many other teachers. There were only about 6 or 7 spaces outside the college for teachers and staff, possibly allocated by position.

One of the older lads from the woodwork section drove a 89/90 Corolla Hatchback.

We were actually given a lift to the metro station (underground tube, not stations for Austin Metros) by a teacher, I can't even remember what car he had, he might have had a Volvo 440.

Back in England, a tutor at a college I attended used to own a very tidy Audi 90. One of my classmates first car was an early Mk2 Rover 820i :shock: I had to wait a few more years before I saw myself behind the wheel of a Rover 800 :angry:

Our playing fields used to often end up with joy ridden cars dumped on them. Mainly MG metros, and mk2 XR2s. On one occasion a mk2 Escort was dumped in a near by shallow river and I waded out, sat in it under the stoved in roof and pretended to be in a rothmans rally Escort.

My English teacher drove a Messerschmitt bubble car that we overtook every day in the school bus. This was in ‘97.

I can’t remember what my mates mum taught, but we got so drunk one day that we spray painted “the beast” on the back of her Maestro. My mum had to come and pick me up as it was deemed inappropriate to take the bus home. It just so happened that we followed “the beast” most of the way... it didn’t half tickle me
