St Margarets School Yeaton Peverey - a Memory of Yeaton Peverey.

I was a pupil at St Margaret's School for Girls about this time, it was run by a Miss Hainselin and Mrs Scott. A most beautiful place to be, although I can't say I learnt anything but to speak well and behave like a lady!
It was taken over by a Mr Chadwick and his family.
Lots of stories and history.
But I was rather a wild child - say no more.
The beautiful house was owned by Sir Offley Wakemen who I believe died in 1991.
I do wonder what has happened to the lovely building now?

Hi Fiona, I was at St Margaret's (briefly) in circa 1966. I vaguely remember a lad by the name of Miguel, the only boy in the school! Can't say I learned anything much! I remember the botas we had to wear and when I was taken to look around the school more or less embarrassed my parents into agreeing for me to go there as I loved the uniform so much!!! It also turned out that my father had known Mr Chadwick in earlier years!!! Unfortunately after about a year my mother deemed the school not up to much and I was taken out. Lovely building though. My memory is not good, but I vaguely remember some girl there who was from the Middle East and deemed to be a princess!! My maiden name was Davies.

If anyone still goes on this site, I was at St Margaret's just after the Chadwick's arrived. He was a complete charlatan; I can still do binary maths and ven diagrams, but have no idea about fractions and long division. My sister, Pricilla Beynon Brown, was there with you, I think, Rosie? I was there with Avril and Miguel Kelly, whose father was a musician. Tessa Lowe was a good friend and I used to stay with her in Seisdon. If anyone knows anything of these people I would love to get in touch. There was also a sweet red-headed girl called Sally, whose father was a doctor near to Wenlock Edge.

she has lots of memories of the school and was there when peace was declared. The Head Mistress 'Miss Hainselin', acted very strangely that night & punished the girls for making noise & being excited at the wonderful news, all as if it wasn't a good thing to happen???? draw your own conclusions..............

My Mum was a pupil at the school during the WW2. Her name then was Avril Reed. On Sunday 30th July 2017 she met someone in a cinema, sitting behind her, who was also at the school during the 1950's - huge coincidence.

kind regards,
