Central Corridor - a Memory of Woking.

I attended this school throughout 1975-1980 and I always found it absurd as to why an almost H shaped building would have a rule that you were not allowed through the central corridor. I remember pupils (bouncers) at either end. I also remember my first headmistress sitting sternly on the stage like a judge. I don't remember her ever speaking, always leaving that to the deputy. I am not sure if the school still exists anymore as I heard that the grounds were sold for development. We certainly had a lot of outside space when I was there, with loads of tennis courts and an outdoor pool. The school became Queen Elizabeth 11 Silver Jubilee School after I had been there about two years, and it started to admit boys, shock horror!

I attended this school as QE2. . 1979 -1983..
It was a good school. Never understood why it closed. Fond memories . Last I knew it was a school for teaching English and parts of the building let out To businesses. That was about 15 year ago .
