Stanhope Primary School

A Memory of Ashford

I have really good memories of going to Stanhope Primary School along Kingsnorth Road, Ashford.
Are there any old photos of the school? I know it has been pulled down.. such a beautiful old building.

I was one of the pupils to attend Stanhope the day it opened. It was exciting to be in such a wonderful building. I still remember the beautiful tree at the front door. So sad to read that it has been demolished. I later went to Willesborough school when we moved there. Another small school but not the same as Stanhope which has warm memories for me.

I went to Stanhope primary in 1951,That beautiful willow tree, the stables at the back of the school, and our nature walks we had. I later went on to South Secondary School for Girls in Jemmett road.
