The canteen was a prefab situated at the top of the yard on the right just past the woodwork room.

Amber and blue were the colours when I attended in 1957-61, although uniforms were not compulsory and I never worn it. Amber and blue was also the rugby kit colours. The senior girls worn brown.
The pocket badge was a spread eagle and was designed by the late Ken Tranter art master.

Attended in the 60's. Mr Yates was the headmaster. Mrs Cork and Mrs Lucas were the top junior teachers. Mrs Hamilton taught the reception class. Remember Vicar Lane teaching a session every Friday morning about the church. Good old fashion discipline was the order of the day.Link to School

Not sure if it's the same Rimmer, but they had the shop near the Garage at the Horseshoe. They lived in Eccleston originally. I last saw Mrs Rimmer at her retirement home in N wales. She said her son lived in Pemberton, Wigan.

Hello, attended the same years '53 onwards, started Form 1B Mrs Broderick, had 18 months away, 65-67, thought it was ok when I left, my return in 4th year holds mixed memories, mostly negative, the time away sort of severed the earlier friendships, never regained any sort of comfort, disappointed, then left in '69 not really knowing what to do!
Last form was 5T teacher Sam Hill, fabulous bloke, and that was his last ever class due to moving more into an admin role.
Early years, much happier than later.
The school was very imposing, confusing, scary teachers wearing gowns, quadrangles, an early loss of rota was disastrous, when all the doors closed no idea where I should have been, never lost one again!

I attended Notre Dame, Eccleston from 68 -73. Sister Mary was the Headteacher. She changed her name to Sister Muriel while I was there. I remember Mrs Beaumont, Mrs Greenall, Mrs Jones, Miss Duffy, Sister Jennifer, Mrs Rimmer and Miss Lavelle. Oh and Mr Pilkington and Miss Fairhurst, the PE teacher!! I only stayed friends with one friend I had from those years.Link to School
