My Primary School

Updated: Feb 4, 2020

I LOVE going home to Liverpool! I was visiting a friend in Liverpool last week and I drove past my old primary school. It brought back SO MANY memories! From the outside, the building hadn't changed that much - but I know I would find a world of difference inside the school! So, here it is: PINEHURST PRIMARY SCHOOL.

I used to live in Anfield, just a short distance away from the school and so I walked to and from school each day. As you can see, it's a LARGE two storey building and back when I was a pupil, the boys were separated from the girls! The boys had the upper storey and the girls the lower. We were never supposed to mix - but it didn't quite work out like that. We had a HUGE playground and there was supposed to be an imaginary line down the middle. Boys playing on one side of the line and girls on the other. You can probably guess that us boys found lots of ingenious ways of getting around that rule!

The teacher I remember most was called Mrs Lunt and she taught Year 6 - or Junior 4 as it was called in my time. She was VERY strict and the class was always quiet. However, I think everyone respected Mrs Lunt.

I did enjoy my time at primary school - but I really think schools have improved and lessons are now far more interesting.

Lovely article David, I too loved Piney Ave and Mrs Lunt. I fondly remember starting at Piney road infants about 58 and walking from Bishop Rd every day, school was the best point in my life, warm with lots of books! I went on to be a teacher and still teach as well as doing forest clubs and kids woodland parties. I guess I would have known you but can only remember Eric Scully. Nice to talk, cheers Laurie Seddon

Hello Laurie Thanks for your kind comments. I would have started at Pinehurst Road in 1956. I guess we were both lucky to get such a good start to our school lives! I was also a teacher/ Headteacher in another life before I became a full time writer. Are you still in Liverpool?
