The Community are planning a publication to celebrate the achievements in education of Mary Francis at New Hall, where she was Headmistress for 23 years between 1963-1986.  Rachel Kellett, an Old Fish, who worked on Fishy Tales with Henrietta Bond and others (published in 2012) has kindly agreed to collate memories and photos of Mary Francis into some form of publication ‘Celebrating an inspirational teacher and Headmistress’.

If you have any photographs or moments you would like to share please contact Rachel directly – / 07920055888.
