Are you on this photograph or, do you know anyone who is? Has anyone any pictures of this school for the period 1945 to 1950?

I attended Priory High School for Girls from 1947-1952. Miss Muriel Clews was our headmistress - a formidable lady and close friend of Selina Dix. One of the school houses was Selina Dix, the others being Godiva, Ellen Terry and George Eliot. Are there any girls out there who were in class 5F in 1952? Some of us are meeting for lunch on the 14th March and we would love to hear from anyone with information about "old girls" from the school. When I started the school in September 1947 it was Wheatley Street School for Girls but in the November Miss Clews announced that the school would, in future, be known as The Priory High School for Girls. I think it was in the late fifties that the school closed and it was moved to Lyng Hall and became a comprehensive school. I remember sliding down the sloping playground on long slides in icy weather - no health and safety considerations then. I also remember Miss Clews marching us all into the Hall after the death of King George VI to sing God Save the Queen and telling us to remember where we first sang the National Anthem for our Queen.

For those who may be interested, click on the 'Famous Coventrians' tab on the left of this page, scroll down to 'Earned Coventrian Status' and you will find a potted biography of Selina Dix on clicking 'Full description'.
