Memories of Hatfield School

Trevor Hall

Hatfield School

I attended Hatfield School from 1958 to 1965 when I was bussed in every day from East Barnet (which was then in Hertfordshire). I have few photographs from that time, but I have all of the annual school magazines from that time (Vol 6 – 12) which contain much of interest.

At that time, Hatfield School took pupils from all over Hertfordshire, which meant that at end of the 6th Form we all dispersed to start a new life. So I know nothing about anybody’s subsequent life – not that I want to – I have the 1958 School Photo with the first years and the staff frozen in time. The photo that I’ve enclosed is of my 6th Form friends I think near the end of our time at Hatfield School as it looks suspiciously like the side of The White Hart in the background!

  • I attended Hatfield School 1964 – 1971.
    I was Linda Hill then.
    My elder brother and sister also came to Hatfield School, Carol and John Hill.
    We were bussed in from Barnet, which was still part of Hertfordshire hen.
    I loved the school, I wish more schools could still be like it.

  • I also attended from 1958 to 1965 and remember Murray Mylechreest, but also Gwendoline Rees who married “Basher” Burley and Mr Morse whose car someone advertised for sale in the Herts Ad.
    I have now lived in Yorkshire for nearly fifty years but still visit St Albans where I grew up from time to time.

  • I also took O Level biology in 1966 with teacher Murray Mylechreest. Hi to Shaun Cherry. No idea of the textbook. Hatfield School was way ahead of its time. Wish I had appreciated it more back then!

  • I attended Hatfield School from 1964-1971. I took O level Biology from 1966-1969. Does anyone know the name of the textbook we used? What was the name of the teacher?
