I also have very fond memories of Northcotes school.
I attended between 1957 & 1964.
My name is David Holmes. Seeing the photos of the Daffodil growing competition, and so many faces that I remember, prompted me to join this site.
Having said that I have wonderful memories of my days there, I remember the fear & dread of moving into Mrs Plowman's class, and having the backs of my legs slapped a couple of times until I was prepared to conform. Once I buckled down, I really liked her and was very sad when I had to leave, age eleven, as only girls stayed on to age 16.
