I attended the 'prep' bit when I was little. Sister Loretta seemed very fierce. Mrs Webster was lovely and Sister Patricia was my favourite.

When I started at North Rd prep the senior school was still there but they moved to Mill Brow giving us more room. I still remember Sister Loretta, Sister Patricia and Sister Dolores.

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.
