I went to Bournville junior and infants in 1960's, then Primrose Hill (got expelled) then Tur.ves Green, moved to Erdington and went to Stockland Green all in the 1970's .
 I remember on the bus some girls called me to sit with them , I didn't as I was shy then, and after I was told a girl who wore tartan fancied me, she got off the bus outside the Grovesenor shopping center in Northfeild, I want to get of and chat with her but I didn't. I really wish I had, I think her name was Alison she went to Turves Green Girls school,

Hi Carol

Welcome to the forum, some friends of mine were in the first intake at Duddeston Manor for their last year of school.

Hi, I went to Longmeadow Girls School in Shard End, from 1960-1964. Overall I liked it there, apart from the Maths teacher Mrs Robinson, who was a harridan, and Mrs Wade the needlework teacher. Our art teacher Miss Haddon was a beatnik type, I thought she was so bohemian. The music teacher was Miss Osbourne, who naturally was called 'frogspawn' behind her back.  Shame, the school's gone now, and houses built on the site, it wasn't an old school either, I think the playing field's still there though. The secondary school system's knocked, but I had a well rounded education, and our classes were large then, so that, in my opinion's not the problem today.
