Regarding the Suella Fernandes story on your Fareham edition front page (I’ll bring back A-levels, says town’s MP, Aug 19).
In the mid-1960s Fareham County Secondary Boys School moved from Harrison Road to new premises at what is now Fareham College.
It changed its name to Bishopfield School.
At both Harrison Road, and in its new home, this secondary modern school offered A-levels.
Only a limited number was taught and these sometimes in teachers’ ‘free’ periods.
Upper and Lower Sixth were commonly taught together.
I welcome our local MP’s decision to try to bring A-level teaching back into Fareham and can only say that it seems to be true that ‘what goes around comes around’.
