Fairfields School

A Memory of Basingstoke

I attended Fairfields "school", and I use that term loosely, in the early 1960s. I have nothing but bad memories that have haunted me for 50 years! The only pleasurable memory I have of the school is hearing a new singing band being played in the schoolyard on a portable record player by a few girls, it was 1964 and it was the Beatles. The girls were immediately taken to the headmasters office and their record player confiscated!
Fond memories indeed.
