There's a real family atmosphere at Bablake; Top Class.
She says: "I remember how all the boys from the age of 10 upwards used to arrive wearing grey suits.
"After some time I left to bring up my own two daughters and when I came back, in 1991, we began a few classes for the junior school in Nissen huts at the side of the main building.
"Those were the roots of our present junior school. Of course it's very smart now but I still remember our original staff room was little more than a cupboard between the huts.
"We had just two armchairs, a kettle, a tiny fridge and about 250,000 wax candles because somebody had made a mistake and over-ordered!
"When we became co-educational my own two daughters came here.
I've always liked the family atmosphere and the way the older children look out for the younger ones.
"It's not unusual to find year six pupils having a game with year threes - the new school encourages a real family atmosphere."
