Hall junior school

I remember Mrs Haycock (sexy, Australian, drove an e-type Jaguar) from Lower 2, and Miss Taylor (large, short hair; I associate her with jewels, for some reason) from Upper 2. But who took our classes in Upper 1 (I joined in January 1971, just in time for decimalisation) and Lower 3?

I remember Mrs Earle, the matron, riding a moped with a white pith crash helmet. And David Gottlieb sitting next to me in Lower 3. And Mrs Sunley teaching me the piano in the nice house next door (the headmaster’s house? For some reason I always imagine Helena Bonham Carter sitting in there. But she’d have been three!)

I had a stroke on July 26th, 2013. I was a screenwriter. Don’t do that anymore. But have found another way to write.
