Choice of school in Ham – by FH

Well, St Richards School we had understood was getting ready for opening in the near future so we put their names down for that school but it wasn’t ready so Ian, our older boy, actually went first of all to St Andrews school which is now St Thomas Aquinas the catholic church.  That had been the old village school.  And when Andrew became ready to go to school that was full so he started school at Meadlands while we were waiting for St Richards school on the estate to open.
