Sent out a mass mailing to most of the peeps registered on www.friendsreunited.co.uk . and got a lot of new responses. Lots of activity on the forum. But  also got my hand spanked by the F.R. people for mass mailing


I'm hearing from more and more people in different years all the time. More of those nostalgic photos are on the way. By request I've added a chat room, I have no idea how it's gonna work out.

Dear Glendon,

My attention has been drawn to the Mostyn House section of your website                          

As I am sure you will be aware, the message board section of this site contains insulting references and allegations concerning staff and ex-pupils of the school. My advice is that much of this material is libellous and that the school and individuals would be justified in taking legal action against yourself.

I should be grateful to hear from you as soon as possible regarding actions that you are taking to control material on this site or to learn that the site is to be closed down. Regrettably, unless suitable action is forthcoming, the school will have to resort to formal action against yourself.

Martin Lloyd 


When I read this email, the term 'Humour Bypass' crossed my mind. So my attorney and I had a good look through the forum to see what all his whining was about and we...laughed and laughed and laughed, fact is truly stranger than fiction, very funny stuff people.

Please note: The fundamental human right of free speech, is protected by the U.S. Bill of Rights, 1791 (server location) and by the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. and anyone seeking to crush such a very cool right, should be thoroughly ashamed with themselves.

Headmaster welcomes report on Mostyn House

MOSTYN HOUSE School, Parkgate, has standards of achievement most often above national norms, though it caters for many pupils of average attainment.

That was the finding of the Independent School Inspectorate when Mostyn House played host to a team of seven inspectors looking at all aspects of school life for five days.

Main findings were that pupils' personal development is nurtured expertly by dedicated staff. As a day school, it serves an area where competition for grammar school places is intense.

Many pupils achieve worthwhile exam results and proceed to further or higher education. The extensive programme of sport, music and other extra-curricular activities is a further strength. Pupils and parents speak warmly of the provision and ethos. Pupils behave well in lessons and around school. Some pockets of weaker teaching exist, the potential of the library is not being exploited, and the senior management team is too large for decisive decision making, adds the report.

Headmaster Julian Grenfell comments: "We are delighted that the overwhelming body of conclusions in the report is a positive endorsement of the life and work of the school. In drawing up our next development plan we will eliminate the small percentage of 'weaker teaching', appoint a sub committee to explore ways of improving the library, while a review of the size and structure of our senior management team is already under way."
