I heard a lot of bad things about St Chads , I guess was lucky to go the Cheetham Collegiate School on Brideoak St., the teachers there were very good unlike the nuns
I meet Roman & Paul when I was last in Manchester in 1978, Paul was living in a share house in Cheetham with other boys from St Peters.

Tbh while I was there I wasn't aware of anything myself, the building itself did feel oppressive because of the architecture, the nuns definitely had their moments, as did the ones at St Clare's secondary where I subsequently attended, the teachers at Chads were strict but I'm sure there were many schools that had similar "regimes" so I just put it down to the fact it was the sixties and things were hard.
