EX-PUPIL SHARES HER STORY FROM HER TIME AT BARR’S HILL SCHOOL (1972-1979)
This week, ex-pupil Miranda Aston visited with her exciting story from her school years at Barr’s Hill School between 11972-1979.
5 lucky students had the opportunity to sit down with Miranda to find out what school life was like when Barr’s Hill turned from a girls grammar school to a mixed comprehensive.
Miranda showed us her uniform and some scrap books that she had made from each year. It was great to see how much the school has changed, yet values have remained the same.
Miranda has been working in engineering since she left school:
“Despite – and probably because of, the advice from my careers advisor at the school in 1974, who told me that Girls couldn’t do Engineering -I went on to become a Chartered Engineer and have spent 38 years working in the Automotive Industry – Carbodies and Jaguar Cars – JLR. School life was very interesting then and gave me a good grounding and I made many good friends.”
