Wheatley Primary School - a Memory of Wheatley.

I lived at The Beechings, Holton (1959-65) and went to Mrs Gerard's class at Wheatley Primary School which was next to the old canteen -the main school was just up the hill by the church. Mr Evans was headteacher-a short, Welshman. My brother's Patrick and Michael also attended before we all went to Magdalen College School in Oxford.

I have happy memories of my teachers, Miss Costain, Miss Gould, Mr Simpson, Mr Benson and Mr Becker in the top class. In my class I remember Ian Cadbury -who lived next door but one in Holton), the twins: Margaret and Jane Wilkie, Andrew Stuart Milligan Torrence Burton (!) Jane Drake, Steven Spinks, Colin Lizieri (in the class below -but the fastest runner I had seen).

We had football in the rec. and played on the rocky cliff at the back of the field.
