Station Road girls and Chandos were almalgamated into Carlton le Willows in about 74 . Carlton girls becoming an annex for first years. I think that it is now industrial units.

Perhaps if you relaxed from raising the query ad nauseum all over the group, you may get a response...

Those that are likely to know will already have 'got your message'!...inane pleading won't help.

Sorry Marzipan. Doesn't ring any bells with me, but welcome to the forum anyway.

In many ways I was glad to just forget CS School.

You can be excused for posting in multiple threads because you are a newbie.

As you have found from P&B's response to your question, there really is no need.

Hey Bab's!!

Thanks for the info! :) Stephen's sister names Patricia...always thought she was younger then him! Didn't get it right this time :)...and yep! It's Mick Fisher he went on about! haha...I think to be more excited then he is to listen to all of your marvellous stories!

I will for sure pass the hello from both of you...He did vaguely talk about the upseting part with a girl...never went further in details...a little normal i'm just a friend of his but I think I already know very much! :)

I will anyway pass through to him all the news! Keep in touch...it's really great! Do not hesitate to ask me any information up to what I can possibly answer! :)

During my days in the neighborhood the house between the two schools was the caretaker's house. When I was still an apprentice with Clarks of Netherfield we re-wired the house. Must have been a bout 1962 or so.

Headmistress in the '50s when I started school there was a Miss Brown. Mr. Jury was headmaster of the junior school there for many years.
