I have recently gone onto the internet and found the site for my old school although I have no memories of ever hearing the name of Frances Bardsley.
I am ashamed to say that I can't remember what house I was in although I remember the house names. My first form mistress was Miss Breakspeare; my particular friends were Barbara Rowe, Carole Craske and Jane Drey.
I can remember Miss Jordan the games mistress who made us change into our P E clothes for games however cold it was, but wore her fur coat!
Who could ever forget Miss Bubbers!
