I remember " Float" being a Deputy Head in the 60s at Waverley. I always thought the name referred to the serene way she moved, as if on castors, and her general air of being slightly above it all.

A friend of mine went to Waverley from 1961 until 1966. Name of Barbara Capp , does anyone remember her?
Hi, if you look on birminghamforum ( ? not Birminghamhistoryforum ? ) Waverley Grammar School 'thread' you'll find a message from Barbara to me so you could link up there if you wanted to ( ?preposition at end of sentence ? Ooops )

Thanks Bobrob, it was me who suggested to Barbara to try to make contact with her old friends via either this or the Birmingham forum.
I know Barbara very well. I'm glad she's made some contacts.

Exactly. I don't think her name was Florence either.

I recently learned from a fellow pupil, Gillian Herdman (1951-56), that Miss Howarth's Christian name was Mary.

Good day, my name is Pat Evans, currently living in Australia. I attended Waverley from 1961-1966 and knew Barbara well. I did try to make contact some years ago but never had a reply. I would love to know how she is doing.
