It seems hundreds of years ago I went to this school...a very big Wake Up!
The class photo was taken the year before I started so you can imagine this is how I looked and dressed! The teacher in the centre is Miss Jackson.
The uniform even had blue gingham dresses for the Summer.
A Navy Blazer or mac and a velour hat with a brim, and as we got older this thing of great beauty had added pleats and tucks to try and give a more jaunty look!
We were forever changing shoes, outdoor shoes, house shoes for inside, plimsolls for games, etc.
Overalls for Science and another for Art.
All of the uniform they listed had to be bought from Palmer's in the Market Place, then THE most expensive store in town. This caused great hardship for my mother, struggling as a single parent after the war.
I played hockey, netball, tennis and I played for the school Rounders team, along with Anne Pashley, who later ran in the Olympics, winning a medal.
The old building was eventually pulled down about 1963 when the school moved.
Memories? Yes. Happy days? I'm not too sure about that......
