Peckham Girls' School by Janet Dunn (Member 10303811) on 4-Mar-2017
I was a French teacher when the school had just opened and was in its heyday: a great success thanks to some great teachers. Would love to hear from former pupils, who were there in late 50's & the 60's. My name's Mrs Dunn (nee Hutton). Sadly Mrs Partington, Mrs d'Ancona etc have died, but I'm still teaching at 80, but English in the South of France!
Do get in touch!

    Sadly, Jill, June Partington died in the early 90’s and I went to her farewell ‘do’ organised by the NUT. Also Mrs d’Ancona died of lung cancer really not too long ago.
