Wilton House School

I went to Wilton House school on the mid 60's.
Mrs Auer was the head mistress. Her son, Phillipe, taught English as did Clive Moore. Mr Morer (a New Zealander) taught Geography and Rugby.
There were two Matrons that I remember; Mrs Banham and Mrs Salter.
The School relocated to a village called Catfield (near Battle) and was named Catsfield Place School.
Mr Moore continued to teach English there until he moved to Battle school for Girls. Mr Johnson was the Geography teacher, a big bloke but a good egg.
Mrs Salter and later Miss Anne Townsend were matrons (and Cooks).
Mrs Auer later married a the German care taker (Albert) who had mostly rebuilt the school single handed.
Mrs Banham went on to run a children's home in Hastings.
I have B/W pictures f the old school in Bexhill if anybody is interested.
Take care all
