The school still exists but is now called Compton School but has lost some of its original surrounding playing fields

Great school, great mates and good teachers though we did not always appreciate them at the time. 1958 to 1963

Wonderful memories. Won the 80yds hurdles running along a track on the grass in front of the school building. I remember Jeff Travis was second.

Hillside opened its doors in 1956, and I was there from from 1960 - 1964. If you walk past the school now, you will see that the playing fields have gone and have been built on either by a housing estate or extra school buildings.
