  • Yes, I started at the infant school in about ’63 leaving juniors in ’69. Teachers at infants unknown, but I remember Mrs Bell as headteacher. Junior school – Mrs Harris, Mr Deadman, Mrs Allen and Mr Kitchen. Headteacher was Mr Emmans.

  • Yes, I remember her, seemed to spend a lot of time locked in her office! Mr Emmans was lovely though. Hope all goes well with you Paul.
