Mr Robertson and Mr Wilkie, Mill Lane Secondary School, Stockton

A photograph of two fantastic teachers from Mill Lane Secondary School on a summer day trip out to a local farm and taken around 1962/3 maybe.

I’m sure many ex pupils at that time will recognise them both. The teacher on the left is Mr Robertson who I believe took over as head. The teacher on the right is a Mr Wilkie who took us for art. I seem to remember he had a navy background during the war and told many interesting stories.

  1. Two brilliant teachers, ‘Pop’ Wilkie’s advice changed my life. He saw potential where others dismissed us as factory fodder. Through I left school at 15 he encouraged me to go to night school then university.

  3. Yes remember them both very well great teachers and good people. Mr Robertson taught Science and Mr Wilkie Art until I left school in 1963. I remember Mr Wilkie’s war stories particularly the one about the Battle of Narvik in Norway
