Childhood Memories - a Memory of Baildon.

I was at Langley Residential school between 1956-1958. Does anyone remember Dorothy Kathleen Speakman, a skinny 8 or 9 year old?
I remember being able to buy soap and talcum powder and sweets from the school tuck shop on a Saturday morning, trips to Ilkley moor and Mum only managing to visit once a month.
I remember being in trouble after only a week as some of us girls stole into the boys' dormitory after midnight (just for a dare of course, we were only very young).
