Rope Hill Preparatory School Boldre Hants Dorset

A Memory of Boldre

In the early 1950s, my brothers and I attended this private school to be taught discipline and to cultivate the finer things in life. We were there from 1951 to 1955 and that school holds memories both good and bad. Being boarders there, our movements were highly controlled, with no escape until half term, or end of term holidays. Mr Heaton was the Head Master to start with, followed by Mr Arch. The teachers I remember were Mssrs. Randle, Sheldon, Edwards, Flood, with a Groundsman Mr Ellis and Matron Mrs Burridge? Where did all the old boys go?
