My memories of my 7years at Barwick House from 1973 - 1980 from the age of 9 years aren't perfect but where else would I have had the chance to ride horses, go sailing, join the Sea Cadets and become the man I am today....I hear a lot about people being abused at the school; yes, it was rough but then none of us were in there for good behaviour, we were in there because no other school would have us.
I loved it and yes I was a trouble maker but I'd like to think in a nice way...Who remembers building the swimming pool? And the stables and what about the stable girl and Annette? I have some really good memories of them if anyone is interested.
