Summer Playtime

Cranborne School opened in 1953 and later became Salisbury Infants. The latter amalgamated with Gascoyne Cecil Junior School (opened 1950, closed 1 Sept 1999) to become Birchwood Avenue Primary School.

Have I got the names and dates correct?

  • I remember the sandpit as having been full of water and I think the headmistress had a dog. I seem to recall it laying behind her desk on one occasion.

  • Many happy memories of Cranbourne. However the sandpit wasn’t full of sand in my day. In the summer it was used as a paddling pool. Only thing I hated was when we had beetroot & they made us eat it. Yuk still hate it today

  • I recall the sand pit with joy, also the bottle of milk at play time was a treat! Though locked doors to the outside world were victorian
