When I first started Clegwell it seemed so big, new and exciting. When one class finished, we needed to look at our time table to find our next class in this maze that was our new school great fun! There were often times when a few classmates became lost and arrived at class late; the teacher understood, but put her foot down when it became obvious weeks later that they were using it as an excuse.
Liz, when I was at Clegwell, the pottery room, run by Mr. Bolton, was upstairs, above the boys washroom:
Mr. Plews used to teach us in the art room upstairs, above the girls washroom. The following pictures shows the art room and the domestic science labs, which I knew better as The place the girls did cookery:

I spent three years at Clegwell, and looking back I find it odd that there were classrooms that I never entered and so never knew what was taught in them. Also, there were rooms/cupboards that I never knew the reason for.
