Memories of Medstead, the School c1955


I went to school here from about 1971 when I had just turned 6 until the age of 11 when I was sent off to the Amery Hill Secondary, in nearby Alton.

This was my school from 1962-1965, the last year l was in Miss May's class where she was the bully, she made my life a misery. The village was a delight to grow up in. l loved it there.

I also went to Medstead School from 1970 to 1975. I loved this little school, I can remember some of the teachers, Mrs Hill, Mrs Westlake, Miss Shaw, Mr. Orbell, Mr. Roberts, Mrs Macartan. Headmaster was Mr. Benham. School dinners here were THE best! The late Mrs. Wooster was the brilliant Cook, along with her team, Mrs. Letts, and Mrs. Keenan.

I went to this school during part of the Second World War years and was in Miss Backhouse's class, she used give you the ruler across the back of your hands if you were caught talking. Other boys that were there at that time were Chris Prier, Terry Jeffries and the Rawling brothers. Happy Days.
