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.

I too remember running up to play hockey at the High School and when I come back to Stamford for The Burghley Horse Trials I tell my daughter we used to do our cross country around the park.
I have a school photograph if anyone out there is interested of the whole school in 1956, I will willingly email them a copy.
