The Smell of School
They say that smell is one of the most powerful stimulants known to man, or in this case boy or girl. One whiff of a damp towel and you may be whisked back 30 or more years to a cold Monday afternoon in winter and the smell of the downstairs changing rooms after rugby practise. Sweaty socks remind me of the gym while eggy smells remind me of the science block. Different parts of Moseley had their own smell, cabbage of course near the dinning hall, strangely enough polo mints for the woodwork room, rubber in the Latin room (what did Doc Martin get up to in there?), poster paints for Art and so on.
Part of The Moseleian Associations remit is to organise reunions and social event to take former pupils and staff back to those sights, sounds and smells. Since reforming in 1995 there have been a number of highly successfully events organised by the association including...
- A reunion to help raise money and awareness to save Spring Hill College from demolition
- A series of Jazz Nights
- Various decade based reunions for 1950's/60's/70's/80's students
- An event to mark the 80th birthday of Moseley School in 2003
- A weekend event and outdoor evening prom concert in 2007 to mark the 150th anniversary of Spring Hill College
- A Reunion event to mark the 50th Anniversary or Moseley Modern School
- Live BBC Radio 4 Broadcast of Any Questions
- A Reunion for former College Road Senior School students in 2008
- A 'Farewell' Reunion in 2011 to mark the imminent demolition of the College Road building

We must sadly report that Maurice Paramore, a founder member of The Moseleians Association, passed away on Friday 18th January 2013 with his family at his bedside.
It is an immense loss to the Moseleians. Maurice has been there from the start and has done so much for the School and the association. He was always there with wise counsel and a ready wit. We shall miss him.
We congratulate Derek Mayman, our first association chairman, on receiving the British Empire Medal in The Queen's New Year's Honours.
The ancient heart of the school, Spring Hill College, has benefitted greatly from almost £4 million pounds of refurbishment.
The school has now reorganised into eight 'Houses', the names of which are based on the original eight Oxford colleges
Recent purchases include copies of text books written by former members of staff.
Hundreds more Photographs of the building work at Moseley have been added to our facebook page.
