Hi I grew up on the manor and I'm a teaching assistant at pipworth school. It is the schools 90th anniversary in October and I am trying to gather photos of the school, staff, pupils and memories people have of being at pipworth over the years for a celebration display. If anyone has any photos, newspaper clippings, historical facts or would like to share a memory please please get in touch. Thank you so much I hope I can pull this off.

I  once spent a few days at Pipworth as a student teacher about twelve years ago. I remember being a bit taken aback by how poor some of the children were, but also very impressed with the care and dedication of the staff. My favourite memory was the day it started snowing and the teacher immediately stopped the lesson and let all the kids outside.

You were « taken aback » by how poor some of the children were ? In a school that takes kids from the Manor estate.

Yes. I knew real poverty existed, but that was the first time I'd seen it up close.

real poverty, compared to real poverty they lived in luxury.

 if  you want to see real poverty and got a few Gs to spare, i will take you to see real poverty.

   This is not a wind up post either, i am serious.

Let the kids outside to play in the snow or for them to go home ?
