 Senior School

At the age of 11 I started at senior School.  This seemed a very large school after my primary school.   We juniors were somewhat in awe of the senior girls, prefects etc. and the teachers.  Miss Lomax was the Headmistress and ruled the School with a rod of iron - Miss Best was the Deputy Head and taught geography.  

One day a week we ran up to the top  Park next to Jacob's Ladder to play hockey. Miss Wormald was our games mistress.   I was left-inner on the forward line.  By the time we had run back to school, changed out of our hockey kit and cycled home we were pretty exhausted.  We kept our cycles in a cycleshed at Junior House.  A few of us would amble down Lumby's Terrace wheeling our cycles and having a chat before heading home.
