I NOTE that Maurice Lawrence (All Our Yesterdays, The Crow, August 31) has stated that Queens Road School was "the only school in Royston".

The church school in Market Hill was still going strong until long after the Second World War, and pupils from this school also went to the old British School in Market Hill Rooms for woodwork (boys) and cookery (girls)

There was also an infant school, which later had a spell as a library.

I attended these schools between 1929 and 1938 and there was a fair amount of rivalry with Queens Road School.
