Former pupils explore the history of Badsey School
On Saturday morning, 22nd November 2003, a group of former pupils and staff of Badsey School, accompanied Maureen Spinks and Mrs Elizabeth Spencer, the Head Teacher, on a tour of the school. The aim of the tour was to try and understand how the school has developed over the years and the changing use of the various rooms, which will assist when writing the history of the school. Mrs Spencer, herself a former pupil, kindly gave up her time and agreed to open the school on a Saturday morning, making it easier to undertake the tour.
The Finals of the Rugby World Cup notwithstanding (regular updates were provided by text message by the Head Teacher’s son!), 14 former pupils and staff progressed from one classroom to the next, recalling memories of the school from the 1920s to the 1970s. A most enjoyable time was had by all. The photographs below give a flavour of the morning’s event.
