St Catherine's School, Barton. - a Memory of Barton Upon Irwell.
I went to St Catherine's from about the age of 7 in 1958 along with my siblings. Some of my best friends were Sandra Humphries, who wanted to be a pop singer and I remember she had a great voice, Gillian Andrews, she also had a big brother at the school called Christopher and Lynn Wilkinson, her parents owned the sweet shop just over the bridge. The head teacher was called Mrs Willey, she taught the infants and the teacher for the juniors was Miss Leech. We also had a dinner lady called Mrs Wright. I have fond memories of being at St Catherine's although I can't remember doing any sort academic work.
We lived down Barton Road at Primrose Terrace.
