Living in Hanover

We moved to Brighton in 1944. I was four at the time, my sister Jean was two years old.We lived with our father and mother at  21 Hanover Street. Our house had been a shop and was on the right of a small twitten; on the left was the Little Fox public house.

Moved to Hollingbury

In 1951 we moved to Hollingbury and lived in a nice new council house at 6 Fernhurst Crescent. I sat my 11+ exam at Carden School almost as soon as I got there; a different way of teaching from my previous school at Finsbury Road, I was a bit lost to say the least. The result of that examination was that I was sent to Patcham Senior School.

Comments about this page

I was at Carden school at the time this photograph was taken but cannot recognise any of the pupils. I do however remember the two teachers, Mr Ede the Headmaster and Mrs. Budleigh. Mrs Budleigh's husband was the Headmaster at Patcham Senior school. I moved to Patcham Seniors in 1952.

This picture was taken just after I started at Carden after moving from Cheltenham. I am in the second row from the top, and fourth from the left. Several of the faces are familiar, but I've forgotten the names. I remember Mrs. Budleigh and Mr. Ede very well. After spending a couple of years in Mr. Cheeseman's class after Mrs. Budleigh, I went on to Varndean Grammar School. The class size when I left was, I recall, 43 pupils.
