Thanks again to Robin. By the time I started Carlton Road School in 1955 the headmaster Mr. Woods had gone and Mr. Stephenson had taken his place. He was just as cane happy I can assure you!!
I remember he had a little Welsh woman as his wife. My first teacher was Miss Watling and I also remember Miss Patterson and Mrs. Pape who was very frightening to a small 5 year old.
