I really have little recollection of Babington House, having attended only two or three years (about 1949-52) after which I departed for St Dunstan's. However, my brother attended, I am fairly certain, and later on my mother worked there as a teacher, probably from about 1960 I would think (Joan Brightwell nee Watts). As I remember, she was an old girl too. My mother died in 1990. I can give you details of my brother, if he approves, and I will contact him asap. He has been working at Merton Court, not so far away! Interestingly, I have almost gone full circle because I now teach clarinet for a few hours a week at The Granville School here in Sevenoaks, which takes boys in the nursery, but not to the age I was at Babington. I believe I have a photo somewhere of myself in a class at Babington; I will try to find it if it is of any interest.
