Mr Mitchell

School Days: 1978-1979

One of the first Grange Hill teachers to be seen, Tony Mitchell was a proto-Mr Hopwood or Mr Robson. Mr Mitchell was a firm-but-fair form master for 1A (later G1) and was well-respected by the pupils. He was fairly approachable and had a dry sense of humour but at the same time would readily bark at anyone causing trouble. While not in any way a walkover - he was vociferous in his efforts to force Trisha Yates to comply with school uniform - "Old Mitch" genuinely liked his young charges and would go the extra mile to champion the cause of the underdog (ie. Benny Green). Not even Mr Mitchell was immune to the infectious charms of Tucker Jenkins...
Series 1: Mr Mitchell helps Benny Green when he needs to find a pair of football boots to play in the school trials. When the right size cannot be found, Ann Wilson offers to lend her hockey boots. Mr Mitchell later has to initiate corporal punishment of Tucker and Benny following their exploits at the munitions dump.

Series 2: New headmaster Mr Llewelyn re-organises the school form system and so Mr Mitchell has a new tutor group, G1. When Cathy and Trisha ignore orders not to go home alone (due to a prowler targeting girl pupils), Mitchell comes to the rescue just in time after Carol raises the alarm. He also goes with the first years on their field trip and finds it hard keeping the boys in line.

ASSOCIATES: Mr Starling, Mr Malcolm, Mr Llewelyn, Mrs Schubert, Tucker Jenkins, Trisha Yates, Benny Green, Michael Doyle.

REASON FOR LEAVING: Surely Tucker didn't wind him up that much?!

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Has only just retired from teaching.
