Hi, i have just left a message for you on your phone, that i was at the orphanage from 1953-1956. age 9-12yrs. Sr. Aloysius was the only teacher at the time. but that was no use to me,because i had no previous education and was always at the back of the classroom.yes it was a very sad place to be. life can be very cruel, but look on the bright side, you are never alone with your guardian angel by your side. all the very best. regards, john

Mill Hill St Anthonys primary school ?  

I'm researching my own personal history and trying to find information and photos of St Anthony's Catholic preparatory school in Mill Hill, which I attended from about 1958 - 1963. However I can find absolutely no information or images online. It seems to have vanished off the face of the earth. It was run by a Sister Stephanie whilst I was there. If anyone has any recollections or information I would be most indebted. Many thanks.  Mail-me

Mill Hill St Antonys School Hale Lane  

Dear Pete,
Like you, I attended St Antony's School, Hale Lane, Mill Hill NW7
from 1960 until 1964. Sorry I don't remember you by name, however Sister
Stephanie OSF was head at that time. Also a Sister Agatha OSF was also there. A Mrs. Barker played the piano and also gave private tuition. Mrs Kendal gave ballet. Form teachers I remember by name were Mr Bishop, Miss
Quigley and also coach for the 11 plus exam Miss McMullan. A Mrs Murphy cooked hot meals at lunchtime. She lived in the croft Maxwelton Cottage infront of the school. In my class was Christina Petry who became captain.

Mill Hill St Anthonys School Mill Hill  

I must have been at St Anthony's around the same time, with Sr Stephanie, Sr Agatha and Miss Quigley as my form teacher! ?1963-1965. Miss Quigley used to hit our hands with her "barbed wire ruler"! I do remember Stefan Gunter was in my class and one of the Petry girls, we went on to St Mary's Abbey on the Ridgeway. My brother also went to St Anthony's at the same time, though he was 2.5 years younger than I, he was in a class with Julie Forsyth and we have a photo somewhere!

Mill Hill I too was at St. Anthonys School, around the time you were there.  

Besides Sister Stephanie, I remember a Sister Bead. I am trying to remember the names of the children in my class, the only ones I can remember are a Mark Conway, Peggy Peggetia (?) (an American girl), Christopher Thornton and I think a Kieran Kettleton, spelling is probably wrong. Katherine Cameron

Mill Hill St Anthony  

I remember Sr Stephanie with great fondness. She is the reason I became a teacher. She was so kind and when I said I wanted to be a nun said do something useful like teach teach instead lol.
I remember Mrs Quigley with loathing. She was unbearably cruel to me every day. I've never forgotten the love and kindness of Sr Stephanie. I went on to St Mary's

I also attended and sister Stephanie was still there, I think that was between 1966 and 191969.

Gosh Miss Quigley was our form teacher who didn't like me very much. I do remember some very good friends made during at time.

I always thought I had imagined the 'barbed wire ruler'! I came across these posts by accident, and it was almost a relief to read that, though it wasn't a pleasant memory. I think our mothers objected at one point and she had to stop? It's hard to believe now. I was there 1959 to 64 and was one of the 'non-Catholic' girls.

Mill Hill St. Anthonys School -Mill Hill -1965-1970  

I was a pupil at St. Anthony's when Sr Stephanie was the Head. I remember Miss McCarthy, Miss Quigley-who went on to become Mrs Nicholson, Miss Di Palmer, Mrs Wilczenski, Mrs. Kendal, Mrs Barker and Mrs Patten who taught elocution. Some of the nuns really shouldn't have been teaching children. Sr. Alexis and Sr. Agatha were scary and extremely strict. I stayed in contact with Miss McCarthy until she died. Some of the others I remember were Mr and Mrs Murphy and in my year were Annie McGhoohan, Emma Howard, Clare Rooney, Helen Fung, Sharne Pilato and Janie Capaldi. I used to love being in the school plays. I went on to St Marys Abbey. I would love to hear from anyone who was there when I was.

Mill Hill St. Anthony  

My siblings and I all attended Mill Hill School (Ferrari) Nicolette, Margarita and Roberto (Bobby). I also made my first communion there. Mrs Kendal was my ballet teacher. I had the misfortune to have Miss Quigley as my form teacher who then got married & was Mrs Nicolson. I hated her with a passion, she was cruel. We had a boy (Christopher) who had a learning disability and she would terrorize him by threatening to send him to the 'House on the Hill' My younger sister used to be bullied by Tracey Roberts and her sister Kim. Don't have any great memories from those days, I probably was not the best behaved as by the time I turned 11 I stopped believing in the faith. We were close friends with the Wykes family (Tracey, Lisa & Daniel. I went to Rosary Priory in Bushey, Herts. Susan Ferrari  Mail-me

Mill Hill John Carter  

I was at St Vincents with my younger brother Peter. I am not sure of the dates, but I think we arrived about 1950. Some one told me this was the film site for the recent Call The Midwife TV series, and that its now called St Josephs? I can recall the concrete steps leading down into the play area, but I cant really remember much more, except that the nuns were quite strict, but always kind and fair.

Mill Hill Seeking Alan Johnson  

I have been trying to locate the last missing piece of my family tree....My father-in-law recently passed away and his name was Kevin John Johnson both he and his brother the above named Alan were orphans.

Alan was born in 1942 and was admitted to St Vincent's Mill Hill in 1947. He had spend his early years at St Mary's Convent, Walthamstowe in the Nursery. He stayed at St Vincent's until he was 11 years old until 1953 and transferred to St Charles Orphanage, Brentford. His mother was Maud Johnson

I am hoping that Alan or anyone who knows of Alan reads this and gets in touch with me...Alan you have two sisters, Freda who is 80 years old and Mary who is 86....time is definately running out...so I hope someone who can help comes forwards.

If you were in St Vincent's at the time and knew of Alan Johnson or of both Brothers at St Charles please do do get in touch.
