Barwick House School - a Memory of Barwick.
Barwick House as shown in the photographs on this site is sadly no more although the building is still standing and is now being used as luxury apartments, this is as a result of the school (which previously occupied it) going bankrupt in 1987, the school was run by a Major Gray and his wife. I was a pupil there from September 9th 1977 to May 25th 1979 and I was glad to learn of its closure as a school although it wasn't until April 2010 that I actually learned of this development. I say that I was glad because my memories of my stay at the school are not happy ones, my memories of my time at Barwick House are of abuse and suffering and I am delighted that the school is no more and that the abusing monster who ran it is almost certainly now dead.
I am updating this entry to inform you all that Major Gray IS dead and may he rot in whatever form of hell he ended up in.
Additionally, I learned from Avon and Somerset Police that one of the teachers (I don't remember which one) is now serving life in Broadmoor for murder, he has no chance of ever being released.
A memory shared by on May 5th, 2010.
