      Hi thorpja01

      It was pretty much by chance – when I did the 11 plus I originally applied to a mixed school, but there was a place spare in the all boys school so I went there. The two schools were on the same site, so we all mixed in – in fact the building was a military hospital in the Napoleanic wars – the school sweet shop was in the old mortuary!
