|Admin History||William Edward Streets was born in September 1903 and was brought up in the village of Claypole, Lincolnshire, where most of his antecedents had lived. In 1914 he won a scholarship to Magnus Grammar School, Newark, Nottinghamshire. In September 1920, the headmaster of Magnus Grammar School, H Morse, helped him apply for the post of Junior Assistant Master at Scorton School, North Yorkshire. When he thought he had saved enough money he researched going to University and he was supported once more by Mr Gorse and the Rector of Claypole as well as the Head at Scorton. In December 1925, after five years of saving, he returned home to Claypole because from January 1926 he went to Nottingham University cycling every day to Newark and then catching the train until he bought a motor bike. He was awarded a Revis studentship for £35, for the academic year 1926-27. He worked hard at University and his sporting life continued, playing hockey for the University Hockey Club. |
Having graduated in 1929 he went on to teach at Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, Wimbourne, Dorset, and retiring in 1967 (though he then did some part time teaching at Poole College).
