I went to the 'annexe' (Holy Ghost as was) from 1966-68 the other years were spent down the lane in the main school but we only stayed there until we we were about to go into the 3rd year than it was up to the annexe. That lane was freezing in the winter with the wind blowing from the golf course on the left (complete with air raid shelter) and the field leading to the Strand Park on the other side.
I was usually late and knew about it when the big white gate was pulled across the rough road between the huts - ours was the second lot of huts on the right and we were 3A and 4A, we stayed in the same classroom for the whole time we were there. I remember across the road there was a hut that housed the toilets adjoining the staff hut, these led onto the playground at the back then there was another hut that housed 3/4c and then the dinner/assembly hall. At the side of our classroom was the cinder path leading onto the golf course (I think it's still there)
One of the teacher's there used to give us orders to get in line by shouting (sergeant-major style) 'Attenshun! Right Wheel! Left wheel! Quick march!' He must have been in the forces I can't remember his name but we marched smartly to our classrooms.
I remember when it was foggy you couldn't see your hand in front of your face going up Sterrix Lane.
I'll shut up now.
