Comments about this page

Mrs Doris Floyd and her husband Captain Floyd lived on the top floor of the school in its current location at Mansfield Woodhouse.  I was a pupil 1970 - 1976.  My Mum was school nurse, Margaret Watt.  Other teachers were Mrs Janet Calow, Mrs Avril Wilkinson, Mrs Grainey - gosh testing my memory here !.  Many fond memories of ballet lesson above the old stables, Ballroon dancing lessons over the road (that may have been Sherwood Hall if thats the one over the road from front entrence of Saville house )and when the Church next door got vandelised. We would get our bottles of milk delivered to the back gates every day and the milk monitors would distribute them to all students. I do know Mrs Grainey took over as Headmistress after Mrs Floyd retired.

If I think of anything else I will let you know.
