I am sorry tom of the passing of Mr Jenkins [ Sir] . I was a pupil at Kingsdown 1969-1972 so he was the fierce Deputy Head then. You didnt want ton get on the wrong side of him, if you did it was the dap, the ruler or detention,. But if you were in any of his classes and work well you got on his good side. His guitar playing in assembly was memorable . A great School with fantastic teachers, shame we had to go to Headlands.
