I went until I was 6, hated every minute of it. Remember Miss Byrne the head, Miss Bruce, Miss Woodend and Miss Robinson. Not my happiest of memories

Miss Byrne rings a bell but none of the others that you have mentioned.When I was there it was a Mr.Reece and then Mrs.Goodwin took over (with Mr.Gardham in between)as the head teacher.do you remember Mrs.Nicholson and Mr.Levvet or Miss Horne who played netball for wales and would mention it every oppotunity she got?? lol

I left there in 76 and can remember mr Bethell the headteacher before Mr Reece, Mr Gardham retired last year from the 'new' woodlands as both my daughters go there, I loved the fact that we had a swimming pool, skanky as it was, it was bloody brilliant, getting changed in the boiler house, Ive got pics of it but don't know how to put them on as its my 1st time today, haven't even been on facebook!!!
Oh while im at it, can anyone remember the spooky staircase that went up and around Mr reece's office?

I was there from 1942 to 1946, Miss Jones was the Maths teacher, mine was Miss Hughes, stern and nasty, used the ruler too easily.

Yes, I attended The Woodlands until I was seven years old, but I believe I started at four in 1931. I certainly can't remember any classmates, but the headmistress is very clear in my mind but her name escapes me. I was disgraced for not coming straight home from school. My mother gave me a note which I unwittingly took to school sealing my fate. I remember we used to have cardboard money in class and I took two pennies and tried to make a call from a phone box! There was a sort of underground area at the back part of the building where we played.. My mother used to bring me a hot drink at playtime and pass it through the railings.
