Life at School was a big personal change.
Joining at the age of sixteen, this was my first time away from home.
Despite this, the fellow boys in the house and the house mistress were all very welcoming to new arrivals.
The routines certainly took time to get used to; particularly the early starts which I’m sure Mrs Williams, Linton House mistress at the time, can agree with me on this!
There were many memorable times throughout my two years of school and living in the boarding house.
The general experience of living with the other boys, led to some vivid and funny memories, as I’m sure you can imagine.
