Burleigh School, Cheshunt

Mr Cuthbert's Class

Mr Cuthbert's Class

This is Mr Cuthbert’s class in 1971.

The school colours were purple tie with a deep yellow bllouse for the girls and grey shirts and sweaters for the boys. The reason for purple ties was that it was the headmistress’s favourite colour.

The Headmisstress was at one time Miss Day; during the Lord’s Prayer, some children would say, ‘Give us Miss Day, our daily bread’!

  • I’m second from the left in the front row. I have the same photo at home and can name most – if not all – the pupils. The school football kit was purple shirt with yellow trim, yellow shorts and yellow/purple socks. Awful!
