  1. Great picture that brought back my memory of the gold frame chairs with red canvas back and seats were I sat with Geoff Capes as we heard all those moans from Jo fathers.

    1. Remember it well. Once I had some monitor duty that I can’t really remember what it entailed that meant we were in the rural studies block during assembly. Explored the place while everyone sat there. Also remember having to show our hands were clean when we went in for lunch.

  2. Your first Head Girl, Veronica Morphew [nee Gale] died suddenly and peacefully on 17th October 2018 in the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton. She had kept in touch and visited Mr Fathers in Suffolk, until his death.
