Ditton Place School, Staplefield (1 of 3)

Ditton Place is located at the northern end of Brantridge Lane, Staplefield and during its life as a residential school provided education for children with special needs. It was closed in the 1990s and amalgamated with nearby Staplefield Place School.
Mrs Margaret Cook (1913-1982), formerly of 24 Truggers, Handcross, worked as an assistant at the school and her small collection of photographs of the pupils and staff from the 1970s has recently been added to the archives..
None of the photographs are dated and no names have been provided. Please can anyone identify any of the pupils or staff? The original pictures are quite small and not very clear.
The Large Version shows a close up of the school dining room with members of the staff seated at every table keeping order!
Select Open Document to view three photographs of the exterior of the building. The third picture shows a greatly enlarged, but indistinct, image of five pupils.
