‘School days. Ventnor Secondary Modern School, 1953-1954‘ by Margaret Gardiner and Lesley Telford. Reminiscences taken from the 1953/54 School Magazine; the Headmaster at that time was T G B (Ben) Howe, the Senior Mistress was Miss I M Clark, and the Senior Master was A W (‘Rumbo’) Lewis. There were many clubs and societies, and two notable events that year were the school production of ‘Carnival Nights’, and the School trip to Montreux in Switzerland.
