As we celebrate our 50th Birthday we remember when…

There were no mobile phones, no internet, no email and business was conducted by letter. Maybe you knew someone who had a house telephone, there was only one car per family and that was if you were lucky, the TV programs switched off at midnight and there were only 3 channels to choose from. We remember milk being delivered to the door by the milkman and dustbin men carried your dustbin to the lorry to empty it. We also remember advent of the digital age with LED watches, the first pocket calculators, the BBC Basic and ZX81 computers all coming in as we were getting ready to leave school.Baby boomers saw the first personal computers

Who are the Baby Boomers?

Baby boomers is the name given to those born between 1946 and 1964, the last few years being the height of the boom. 1963 & 1964 were bumper years for schools necessitating large classes. With 50% more children than the year prior, education was stretched and some schools had as many as 47 pupils in primary classes. Extra classrooms had to be found and many schools resorted to Terrapin buildings to house the extra students. As these high numbers of students reached education the bigger class numbers restricted the options schools were able to offer.
