Once a Manxman…

The Story of my father, Godfrey Cretney

For his pioneering work in comprehensive education, Godfrey Cretney was the first state school head teacher in England to be knighted. This mission had begun in the Isle of Man, when he was first head of Castle Rushen School.

Born in Douglas, one of a large family, Godfrey was eighteen when he first left the island, but (as the saying goes) the island never left him.

This book recalls his life and personality, and celebrates the island he loved.
