The Beeb

Mr. Barrett was a name never used by any FGS pupil. He was The Beeb. Believed to be a German national who arrived in Farnborough as a result of World War II in circumstances which are totally unknown. He taught Music and German and had a fondness for touching boys’ knees.
Famed for his 12:30 and 1:20 detentions he was deeply unpopular and left the school in dubious circumstances. He was afterwards occasionally to be seen at a school on the Aldershot side of Lynchford Road near Queen's Avenue.
