147-365 (Year 7) School's out !
I've been tidying up – and gosh how the "book room" needed tidying. I came across this old exercise book from when I was fourteen. I'm writing about "Indoor hobbies" and my English teacher, Mr Walter, a contemporary of W H Auden at Oxford, has described it as: "A little thin." I think he was being rather generous with his mark of 10/20.
Eighteen months later I took, and passed, English language GCE ordinary level and afterwards English literature. I studied English as the main subject of my B Ed degree … I'm sure Mr Walter would have been amazed.
Having spent more than fifty years at school from my fifth to my sixtieth birthday, I'm quite glad that it's over for me :)
