A terrific teacher at Weston Park Boys School in the sixties , he could praise & terrify in the same minute but was always fair.
Chased us a
round Weston Woods and Inspired us to win the Southampton Schools Cross Country Championship in 1965 at the Sports Centre,I expect he's teamed up again with Polly Perkins again.
RIP Dear Sir Clive .

Aah dear Mr Prestidge! My patient and good humoured Maths teacher at the Mountbatten School! I was pretty useless at Maths but he never gave up on me! Enjoyed listening to his LPs in Maths lessons on his record player!
My Dad used to take me to school in the car as we lived in Mainstone, we used to ‘race’ Mr Prestidge if we saw him in the mornings in the Whitenap estate! Great fun!
Very fond memories, my condolences to his family.

I was terrified of maths in primary school. When I joined the Mountbatten school and had my first lesson with Clive, it changed me completely.
Clive gave me a lifelong love and fascination with mathematics. In my work today I still use matrices, set theory and topology. Every time I reach for one of these maths tools I think of him and silently thank him.

Mr Prestidge was a fabulous Deputy Head. He commanded a healthy level of fear, but tremendous respect from all the pupils. I’ll always remember him striding down the corridor and he is the reason I managed to get my Maths GCSE. A brilliant Teacher. Rest in peace Sir
