I was Anne Whitmore back in the 60's and also went to Bremond College. Remember well Madame Marash and Sir, and of course Mrs Daniels who always had it in for those of us that had come from Africa, Valerie Banks, and Lucretia Jeronides. All these memories take you back!!! Anne Edited by member, 2nd Feb 2017 7:48 pm

From what I remember Ann Gould was the head girl at the time - she went on I believe to become an MP!

Madam Marash was German but I seem to remember she managed to put me off French very successfully. How on earth did I land up living in France!! Anne

Responding to Anne Hills. I went to Bremond in the late 50s early 60s but only for about 2 years. My name then was Hilary Collins. The story I was told about Madam and Sir was; she was one of the daughters of the Bass Beer group and eloped with Sir, who was Austrian and the family bought the school for her before the war. I can remember one music class, when someone clipped a piece of string with a lighted!! piece of paper to the skirt of the music teacher!! It certainly was a bizarre place.

Some snippets from years gone by Thumbs up Coventry Evening Telegraph - Thursday 30 March 1939 BREMOND COLLEGE SPEECH DAY Miss S. W. Michell on Risk of Mechanised Thinking Miss S. W. Michell, headmistress of Stoke Park Secondary School, presented the prizes and certificates at Bremond College’s fifth annual speech day yesterday. Councillor J. Holt, presiding, stressed the necessity for the right atmosphere in a school and also spoke of the fine work which was being done for higher education in Coventry. In her report, the Principal (Mrs. J. G. Marsh) [sic] described the rapid growth of the school and asked for greater co-operation. She emphasised the importance of keeping girls at school until they had at least taken the School Certificate. Indiscriminate use of wireless, newspapers, and cinemas, said Miss Michell, could only lead to mechanised thinking and a lessening of appreciation for the beautiful. Girls at school were trained to think and appreciate beauty. ________________________________________________________ Coventry Evening Telegraph - Saturday 26 August 1939 BREMOND COLLEGE EVACUATION Bremond College (for Girls) will, in the event of war, move to HILL TOP COURT, PENMAENMAWR, NORTH WALES.
