    This the front view facing Reigate Hill Road. The front door was rarely used during my time (1947-51)except for parents at the beginning of term. Date of this photo could be anywhere during the 1940s.

    I attended from Dec. 54 to May, 55. Mr. B was Headmaster. I cannot remember which house I was in (Lions, Dragons, Unicorns) Remember Matron? A very good time, long ago. I cannot locate the school on Google earth. JDK

    I was a boarder at Hillside from 1951 to 1954 and a dayboy from 1954 to 1956. When was the school demolished? I remember Mr. Bannister as head at that time.

    I am Peter Osborne's brother. I was a boarder here from September, 1952 through mid 1954, then a weekly boarder from September 1954 through mid 1955 and then a day boy until July 1958.
    I would like to know when the school closed (perhaps 1960, when the founder and headmaster, Mr. Banister died). Also, the buildings were not demolished until must later, perhaps 10 to 15 years? Further, the school grounds were fenced off for many years after that, but the playing fields and swimming pool building were acquired by another entity. Perhaps the former building areas are still fenced off.
    Lastly, whatever happened to all the school paper records and all the library books?

    This is the back view of the photo above: the bay window was the fron of a room that held the library and was also a classroom. The wooden building to the right was the gym and assembly Hall where morning prayers were held znc boys were caned for various infractions after assembly! I should know: I was caned from time to time, but became school captain in 1951 and monitored such events! I revisited the school in 1959 after National Service and talked with Mr. Bannister. I think the school closed in 1960, tho' I didn't know that he had dies that year.

    This was not a schoolroom in my time (1947-51) but always an assembly hall and a gym. The Trellis in the foreground dates the photo before 1947 certainly, because it wasn't there in 1947!

    I attended the school from 1953 to 1957. I have strong recollections of my time there and the Head Master's clockwork train set out in the open behind the Headmaster's House.
