I was at Mayfield from 1956 to 1961 and the photo below was taken in year 4 or 5 when I was known as Rosalie. I remember Miss Tappenden, Miss Rayward, Mrs. Mendem, Miss Strachan (pronounced, as she kept telling us, Strawn), and Audrey Nicholson. She was very special, and her influence has led my career in the theatrical direction.
I now produce conferences for commercial and government bodies. Unfortunately, I don’t remember many of the girls. That may say something about me! My father was the tenant publican at the Cauliflower Hotel at Seven Kings, Ilford.
