Farnborough and Charnwood schools

Recommended Posts

I notice there are no posts on the girls schools at Clifton apart from Clifton hall, did any of you ladies attend either Farnborough or Charnwood in the 60's/70's?

I didn't (wrong gender, I was at Fairham) but my two sisters Valerie and Alison Bingham were at Charnwood as was my first wife, Carole Fowler. This would be mid to late 1960s.

1959 to 1965, also Fleming House. So we overlapped by a year or so. Mr Hind was housemaster, a good man. I was in Fe, tutor was Mr. Penchion. Until I moved here in Thailand I still had my old school tie too!

Charnwood was a lovely school which cared for its pupils. At least, that's the way I recall it when I taught there from '75 to the early '80s when it closed.

I lived opposite Farnborough School from around 73 up to 75 when I moved to North Yorks, and it was mixed all that time.

When Farnborough  first opened it was all boys, Charnwood just up the road was all girls. Fairham again all boys when it opened.
