Schools in Cold Ash Thatcham Berkshire
« on: Saturday 27 January 18 14:28 GMT (UK) »
I was at a primary school in Cold Ash called Ridge House in the early 1950's. I have tried to find out any history of the school but there seems very little on the net. Can anybody provide any info on this school, I would be very grateful . When I was there the head teacher was Ms Wilder and we were taught may subjects including French and Knitting!  I know it is now demolished and houses built on the site. I have a few odd  photos of the school at that time  which I would happy to share with anybody interested.
