walsingham primary school






The present Primary School was erected in 1912 for supposedly 230 children (!).

Alfred Percy Rawlings was the Headmaster and C A Cornish the schoolmistress

Arthur Rawlings left in 1915 to join up with the RAMC - serving as a stretcher bearer before returning to the school (nicknamed Apple Pies and Rasberries)

Later teachers would be (during the war) Mr Rump, Mr Lewis as headmaster(followed by Mrs Lewis), Miss Harvey, Miss Woollard, Miss Howell and Mr Garrod as sports master.

Two teachers arrived with the London evacuees - Miss Looker and Miss Cruikshanks (the latter married Mr Garrod)

Later teachers included Headmasters Harvey Grace and Gerald Stocking, with teachers Mrs Pearce, Mr Dunn and Mrs Wyer
