I had Pumford every day in fourth and fifth year for geography and geology.I loved his grumpy/playful humour but hated geology. Brilliant teacher. He taught me how to think. He, an Rob Margolis (head of MFL) at the time inspired me to be a teacher. I think of both of them every day of my working career and speak to the kids like they did to us. Wonderful man. He was the only teacher who never wore a watch and on Friday afternoons we sometimes used to change his clock when he wasn't looking.
mr pumford was my fave teacher of all time :) hes amazing :)
Mr Pumford is one of the best teachers at Smithills!
