This photograph is of Miss Rossall's side of the school,we were separated from Miss Townend by a archway and could not go over a white line painted in the playground tarmac. As far as I remember kids from the Ambertons side went to Miss Rossalls,and kids from the Eight shops side went to Miss Townend's side?.
