NORTHERN Grammar School’s Class of ‘54 enjoyed a happy golden anniversary as they returned to the place that forged great friendships all those years ago.
The former grammar schoolgirls took a trip down memory lane when they met up at their old school – now Mayfield in North End – to celebrate 50 years since they left.
Andrea Knight, 68, who organised the event, said: ‘It was superb. In the end we had 11 old girls who joined the reunion.
‘The outside of the school hasn’t changed much, but the inside is completely different – for a start boys and girls mix!
‘It brought back so many memories and we all enjoyed telling stories about what our school days were like.’
