Reedham School

A Memory of Purley

I attended Reedham School from 1957 for a couple of years. My father had pased away and my mother sent me to Reedham, our home was in Harrow, Middlesex. I have read some of the other memories, mine were different. I was physically punished by prefects and staff, made to stand in dark rooms for talking in bed at night, had mail withheld and to be honest I have no good memories of Reedham at all. I only ever remember being called by my number J16 and having my long hair cut off short when I arrived. I am pleased to hear from some people their memories were good ones and they feel fondly towards their days at Reedham. I wish I could feel the same.
