In the photos of the school, the 3 teachers are: left, Miss French (infants), Miss Buckly (Head) and right Miss Savage, juniors. She appears on the second photo too.

Stan Bailey tells me she was well named as she used to hit pupils including him, across the knuckles with the sharp edge of the ruler. (She doesn’t look a happy lady does she?) The only pupil we know is Leslie Willert (grandson of Teresa and Frederic). In the top photo he is second from the right hand side of the back row and in the bottom photo he is at the left-hand end of the bottom row. Leslie by the way was born in 1923 to give you some idea of the date.
