Clare School, I Was There...........

A Memory of Brympton D'Evercy

The summer of this year, I left Clare School at Brympton after spending a few years there. The house was an extension, but for older boys, of Clare school at East Coker Court. Clare School opened to just a few of us, Boarders and Day Boys, in the year 1957. The Headmaster and owner was Mr Bowden. It was a private school and run as a Grammar School. It was strict, not that I always enjoyed the rules but I appreciated the discipline as I grew older. Both houses were lovely but I prefered East Coker as the ceilings were lower and the whole premises had a warm atmosphere. Many happy years at both. If I can find a picture and remember more I will update this letter. I am retired now but so very glad I had a strict schooling but fear THIS is what is missing today. So sad!!!! Michael.
