I started off going to Church Road School which was opposite. I didn’t like school from the word go. And I was there till just before I was seven when dad came out of the army and they bought a house in Gleneagles Road. And I moved there and then I went to Cockshut Hill School. And I was in the infants there for about six months, then went into the junior school and I was there all through my schooling.
