Mansfield, Sutton and Sherwood Hall

By Jenny Wright & Pauline Marples

This school is a bit of a mystery, oral history and brief information in the Mansfield newspapers suggest it was based in Mansfield and High Pavement, Sutton. Now we have discovered an advert for it being at Sherwood Hall in 1952. Does anyone recall it being there, or remember any of the teachers?
