  1. Hello, is anyone reading this still in contact with Margaret Bulman (married surnames Nagy and Harker)? I recently found out that I have half sister(s), Margaret’s daughter Gina and possibly Karen & Tracy, that I would like to make contact with. Kind regards, Otto Bevis (previously Otto Nagy).


  2. Hi Patricia… you are correct… it was called Grangefield Grammar School. I attended at the same time as Ridley Scott (Sir), in fact in the same class years.


  3. A few years ago I needed to check some information about Ridley Scott and noted that his Wikipedia entry stated that he went to Grangefield School. I changed it to its correct name. Must check to see if anyone has changed it back to being plain wrong! [I could have gone to GGS (in 1958, from Billingham North) but preferred the Henry Smith uniform.]


    • Hi Patricia,…you are correct …it was called Grangefield Grammer School.I attended at the same time as Ridley Scott(Sir),in fact in the same class years.


      • It’s a bit naughty of me but I can’t help wondering if he was teased because of his unusual name. His brothers were Frank and Tony, very normal names in comparison.


        • I’m not aware he was teased!…..I do recall how good he was at Art….his drawings were exceptional, ….very life like……best in class, without doubt!
          However I still wouldn’t have thought that would develop into the profession he is in now…..
