James Lovatt - Music and R.E. Teacher - City of Coventry Boarding School

There has been much speculation about the much revered James Lovatt among former CCBS pupils on the Facebook site and a general idea that he retired to the Exeter district. The original M28 (ie the M28 before me - Trev Teasdel who started the school in 1962) sent an email to this site with a photo from the Exeter and District Organists association site. Here is the website that M28 sent -

James Lovatt was the Housemaster for Blunt and taught music and RE and mentored the Cross Country team - contributed to the varied activities of  the school in many other ways as many of you have remembered.

Paul Nicholas Williamson That is Mr Lovatt, he was always a keen organist went to many churches with him whilst he played the organ.We used to go in his Alvis car which had running boards and then he had a white mini.He would take three or four of us out at a time.
