I was at the Gateway Girls' from 1952-54. I went to Ellis Avenue first then I passed an exam to move up to the Gateway. My name was Gillian Milner known as Gill, I remember the building on Wigston Lane as being a cream prefabricated building with a lovely sunken garden to the left hand side. I can remember some of the teachers as Miss Thomas Head. Miss Evans Geography, Mrs Devine PE and I think the Arts & Craft teacher was miss Roberts  (Bobbo). I was there when sweets came off ration and we all rushed down to the little sweet shop to buy our first sweeties without coupons! I moved away from Leicester in 1961 to go down South and have moved around since but have ended up in Hampshire.
