My mother attended Barton School from 1950 to 1956. She remembers names such as Erica MacIlwain, Christine Dengate, Sylvia Kane plus Joan and Stella but she can't remember their surnames. Joan possibly became a bank clerk, Erica's mother ran a wool shop. My mother's name was Kay Webb and her sister, who also attended, was Lynne Webb. The elocution teacher was Mrs Porche who I later did elocution with at her home in Bexhill on Sea.

Hello, I was at Barton school for few years before 1964 when I went to New Zealand, remember it fondly, the Misses Danns, the school lunches . Would love to catch up with the following :-Elaine Steele, LInda Buss, Anita Bishop , Felicity ?. We were friends with Jane Fisher and allowed to go to her funeral together. I caught up with Miss Foukes when she visited here many years ago now. My name was Frances Kitt.

I went to Barton School in the late 1950s - my name in those days was Toni Preston. Unfortunately I had to leave in 1960 as my family moved to Surrey. I remember the Miss Dann's and I remember a girl called Marcia and one called Anita. Somewhere I have a photo of us all in a nativity production at the White Rock! I also have a school report from Spring 1959 - I will see if I can upload it !

Just found this forum and thread today when I happened to be in a house whose garden ajoined the Barton school garden.
Googled Barton School and found this.
I was at Barton from 1959 to 1965 when I passed the 11 plus and went to Hastings High School.
I remember some of the names mentioned plus Diana Wenham, Sonia Hammond (?), Marcia Diamant....

My memory is appalling and no doubt some names will come back to me.
I had to walk to Mrs Reeves for lunch in St Matthews Gardens (once again a guess!).
I was known as Gay and my surname was Oswald.

Frances - was your Mother called Faye?
