Michael Nancollas has sent a reminiscence:

I remember going to this school in the late 1940's when I transferred from St James's school infants to the top infants year at St Mary's The Uniform was a Blue Blazer with yellow edging and a blue and yellow striped tie for the boys. I then progressed to the Junior school The headmistress was Miss Ashton and other teachers were Mr Davis, Miss cater who later married Mr Davis, Mr Rees and Mrs Andrews. I remember being told off quite severely for defacing the outside school wall of Mrs Andrews classroom where even today I can just read my initials, the subject of my defacement. I left there in 1951, festival of Britain year.
