Broughton High School for Girls was on Bury New Road. The younger
girls were educated at Broom Lane Preparatory School which
was over the road from Broughton High in a house called 'The
Stables'. The webmistress's mother was a pupil at both Broom
Lane and Broughton High and matriculated from here. She loved
this school, despite the large amounts of homework (nothing
has changed in that respect). As a reminder of what was at
home her schoolfriend Lily posted this card to her in the
summer of 1931 when she was on a family holiday in Llandudno.
My mother was very fortunate to attend the school and be so
well educated; her father had died in 1919 whilst serving
in the Army so the education of both her and her sister was
paid for by the Linen Trade. This was because of the post
he would have held if he'd have survived.
