I started at Lynton House when I was about 5 years old ,in1946. It is the only school I attended and left in December 1957. When I started the principles were a Mrs Hutchens and Mrs Sutton. Later Mrs Fuller and Mrs Wooster with Peggy Plumridge as the Head Mistress and Miss Mc Carthy the head of the Junior school which eventually was located in the adjacent property  called Shirley I remember when the  swimming pool was built , which was on a vegetable area .There are so many people I remember I could fill a book with information about the school. In 2002 we held a large reunion  and over 100 ex pupils attended, they came from various parts of the world .Mrs Fuller lived into her90,s and went to live with her family in Colchester, Miss Tyler also had a long life also Miss P Plumridge. I went to visit her a couple of times in Sidbury near Sidmouth, If I can help anyone with any information I may hold I would be pleased to do so .I still live in the area  and often pass where the school used to be situated. I enjoyed all my days there and felt it was a great shame that it had to close .I am still in touch with some of my old class friends.

This is for  P Cunningham. The lady you seek I think is Brenda Green she was a pupil at Lynton and then returned to teach . Brenda had a younger sister Margaret who was my dearest friend , although in a class higher ,we all lived in Altwood Bailey. Sadly Brenda passed away in her late 30 early 40 s , and Margaret passed away in2008. I am still in touch with Margaret s surviving daughter Nicola .Please let me know if you receive this information. I hope I have the correct Brenda.    Mary
