    I came across this website by accident and I am so glad that I did . I was a pupil at Central Foundation , Spital Square 1954 -1961 and was horrified when taking my family there many years later to find it had been demolished . Only the netball goal ring was hanging dejectedly from the wall . It was the smallest playground imaginable but it was where we learnt to rock and roll , jive and sing with our dresses pulled in tight by wide plastic belts in front of the main school door which we were never allowed to use . It was a memorably lovely building with beautiful high windows and a museum of ancient artifacts along the corridors in superb glass cases . It seemed vast and rambling as a building and to this day walking its endless corridors gets me to sleep .
