I remember you, always remembered your name because is was so lovely. Doubt if you would remember me as I was one of the quiet ones, I was in green house always sat next to Sue Turrell.
I remember Paulette being head girl too, lovely girl.

Mrs Broadley was the Headteacher with her little dogs running free in her office. I was in Blue House. Band 1P as in the banding in the word SHEPPARD. Had Mr Tony Jones for Sociology. What a really lovley teacher he was. He saved my life so many times as I was pretty loud and noisy in school, and when it came to parents evening, he used to tell my parents the truth but diluted down... a lot!. Paulette Randle was the Head girl as was her sister Beverley Randle) the year before. Remember the proper tuck shop. Was just watching a program about Black Comedians etc on ITV (Monday 19.10.2020 at about 11pm)and Gina Yashare was talking about how she was discovered and they showed a group of people leaving school, one girl had the scarf on. I knew immediately that it. I saw Pauline was the Dick Sheppard scarf. In the very quick picture was Pauline and a few other girls. Not sure if Gina went to Dick Sheppard. I remember Ms Darnell, Mr Freemantle, Mr North (Maths teacher), MrNg was my form teacher. Ms Guttman ( really lovely teacher), Remember the 6th form common room. They tried to turn us out into lovely young ladies. Loved my school life. The best ever. Does anyone remember me? The old memories are fading a bit though. Best wishes to all.
Shola Adedayo. and my sister Abimbola Adedayo was 2 years above me also in Blue house. Does anyone remember us?

I was in touch with Miss Austin ( English) and Mr Lee’s ( Music) until their deaths.Truly inspirational teachers.The then head girl,Susan Herbert,has remained a lifelong friend.Other teachers who shaped my future were Mr Mossman,Miss Parry,Miss Selby, Mr Williams,Mlle Huard,Miss Coward,Mrs Solan and the lovely Miss Edwards.

Best school days ever! We were proud to wear the school uniform. Mrs. Solan was Head Teacher and my dearest mentor was Mrs. Keeler. My English teacher was the best and had such a soft personality. I wish I could recall her name. She fostered my love of literature and am still an avid reader. I thoroughly enjoyed singing soprano in Mr. Freemantle's choir performing several operas e.g. Carmen and Caveleria Rusticana, to name but a few, over the years. We performed at Central Hall. I sang in the Madrigals at St. Martin's in the Field at Christmas which was an exhilarating experience as it captured the essence of Christmas. I also played the viola in the orchestra while casting glances at Christopher Schubert, violinist from Tulse Hill Boys. I was in the Fencing Club and earned several skill level medals. It felt great competing against the Fencing team of Lycee Francais - they always won matches and they were menacing (they put the fear of God in all London Fencing teams). However, DS Fencing Team took up the challenge and made history... we destroyed them and won the day. Our Fencing team made history for our school. I enjoyed modern dance class with Ms. Darnell dancing to music of the Monkeys. What about the school plays and Debating Club; Archery and my favorite, Hockey. I'm so grateful for the privilege of having such opportunities which has help build my character. I am grateful to all my teachers, mentors and friends during my sojourn at DS. I have had a wonderful education in England and Advanced Education in USA where I now reside..

to 1978 (then Mrs Marilyn Gutmann). I was deputy head of Green House and have many very fond memories of both students and staff. Especially one class who preferred to refer to me as ' Mandy Rainbow'. I did work with Mary Neal in the Drama Department but sadly lost touch when I left.

Made great friends, had nice teachers. Can't help but wonder what happened to a few of them. Commerce Department - Miss Young (Barbara) & Mrs Sales (Pamela), from PE Department Mrs Bond and, my form teacher, Mr. Laird. He was a history teacher.
