Meynell Road School - 1958 - 64

Recommended Posts

Did anyone go to Meynell Road School during this period.


I was there in the Infants and then the Juniors. There used to be a senior school too but believe it closed in 64 when all the pupils moved to other schools (I believe the majority moved to Chaucer which had become a Comprehensive),


Do any Forummers have any memories of the school - pupils/teachers?

I also remember a Mr Ford - he used to take us swimming at Hillsborough Baths.


Some of the pupils names I remember were the Foxes, Marilyn Hunt, Steven Pickering.
