St. Nicholas Junior Church of England School it was located on Locks Hill, Portslade at the ‘Southern Cross’ intersection, next to it was St. Nicholas Infant School. Opposite was the extension of St. Nicholas Infant School. When in the junior school, we had to attend church at the old St. Nicholas Church every Wednesday morning. We walked in lines of twos up Locks Hill to the church, whatever the weather.
I attended all three schools, from 1949 through 1955 then went on to attend Portslade Modern Girls School, Chalky Lane, Mile Oak till 1959. I knew many of the kids as we travelled through the classes together, and being declared a ‘nuisance’ at times, by the headmaster of the junior school I was always, it seemed, in trouble. I really never went looking for trouble, it just happened. Bonny Cother/Veronica Bentley
