I was at Mayfield from 1945-1950. The headmistress was Miss Tappenden – very very strict, but fair. My schooldays were very happy, being in the netball team and swimming team for the school. We had a Miss Batey for needlework, and my form mistress was Miss Gobby.
We only got together with the boys on Sports day on our lovely playing field, which I now understand has been built on. I was able to learn my job at the school, i.e. shorthand typist, and was able to leave school in 1950 knowing I would get a decent job, which I did. I worked in London until ten years ago, when I retired. Does anyone remember Phyliss Berry? I would love to hear from any girls who remember me.
