  • I wasn’t at Goldstone but my sons were two decades later. However, I recognise a lot of these girls from my year at Hove County Grammar School for Girls in 1964: Christine, Linda N, Rebe, Linda T, Michelle and Valerie. Lovely to see them all, more or less as I remember them (I was known as Teresa, then).

  • I have a memories of when I was in 3A (Gillian Swayne). I remember Valerie Mabb and I both winning a prize in an essay competition about pocket money. Graham Hayter spilled ink on Shirley Roger’s dress and had to write a note of apology to her mum. We both still laugh about it to this day. I could name all the faces too! Happy days:

  • Another nostalgic look back in time to all the faces I remember so well in this picture. Was it really more than fifty years ago?

  • Not sure why but I missed this photo. I don’t remember being absent that day, although Mrs Hovell didn’t like me. I have a huge 3A class project at home, (Topics: Roundheads/Cavaliers; Shipbuilding; The New Forest) with submissions from many of my former classmates in this photo. Not sure why it ended up in my hands, but i am happy to email pics of (and send hard copy if desired) of the submissions. Please contact me at
