Eventually the thread became so extensive that it was decided to edit the posts to create separate articles for each school. The editor of The Royal Windsor Website is very grateful to Jane Lindsay in Australia for undertaking the substantial task of editing all the entries. Readers are welcome to add their own comments and memories on the current School Memories forum thread here.

Miss Meech was our class teacher when we were caught without our hats on in Oxford Road and got a detention!
There were some great teachers during my time there as well as Miss Meech, the English teacher. Miss Williams taught maths and Miss Lerrigo French, and the art teacher, whose name I forget, all favourites of mine.
Incidentally, I was never a prefect as I left school after sitting O-levels at Elmfield, the original school building on Kings Road which was demolished when the one-way system was constructed.
Beech was always 'top dog' in my day, I don't know about yours. That must have always been the motto I suppose. Yes, I had Miss Meech for English and music, well singing, choir and school concerts. She would tell us to 'project our voices - let the sound hit the hard palate in the roof of the mouth, not the soft'.
We would go through a particular piece of music so many times and sing, re-sing and then, do it again. She did like perfection - great teacher. I appreciate the school more now than perhaps I did in the time spent there. Did you 'Beat the Bounds' on Foundation Day?
I think the younger girls amongst us couldn't understand why we 'walked round the school perimeter', when we did that every day anyway. Lady Mary Crichton was always invited on that special day. She'd say a few words and then Miss Shawcross, The Headmistress, would stand and tell us about how the school came to be.
School uniform, well, yes, it did cost so much and my mother held down several jobs to pay for it all, one of them at the castle. Caleys sold quite a lot of the outfit.
I wore a green skirt, 'dayella' spblouse, green tie, with tiepin and house badge, green cardigan or v-neck jumper. Brown or black shoes with beige, knee-hi socks in winter term, brown sandals with white ankle socks in summer. The first summer term, the dresses were green and white checks, the next summer term, much to my mother's dismay, it was changed to green and white candy-stripe.
Hockey boots and stick, tennis racquet, given to me as I've explained in another contribution on the forumgreen, knee-length shorts-cum-skirt, probably like yours.
Gym bag, plimsolls, yellow Aertex gym blouse. Any ribbons had to be dark green and I had plaits then, so bought some green ribbon in Woolworths.
No ball pens, only fountain, pencil case, oh it goes on and on I can't even think what it all would cost today. I had Miss Williams for maths too. She terrified me, but, I can still remember simultaneous and quadratic equations, simple and compound interest.
How I'd work them out now though, is another matter. She was very strict and I remember the days when I cycled into the Kings Road double gates, I'd put my bike in the racks, then walk past the few cars parked there, just to see if her car was there.
I still remember the number plate, it was 'CAP 20'.
She was so lovely. I loved learning French from her because of her gentle nature, I suppose. I still 'have a go' and try to keep up with the language.
