Behind and to the left a bit is Queenswell Primary School. There were also two football pitches, used by pupils from Friern Barnet County School (as it was called then). Access to the school was in Friern Barnet Lane, but this has now changed. Part of the Queenswell complex of huts was used by the Sea Cadets - TS Invincible. I wonder if there are any photos of Queenswell etc from the 50's?

I was ‘educated’ at this establishment from 59-63. A particularly unpleasant teacher, Miss M..., still scars my memory, her classroom shown in the picture on the ground floor. The headmaster, Mr. Smith, aka ‘smutz’ had the pleasure to cane me on more than one occasion. When I was released, I made it to Woodhouse Grammar, a school for which I only have praise. (That’s not to say I enjoyed it!)
