Recollections of Witham Secondary Modern School, recorded in 1978
Lucy Croxall describes the start of Witham Secondary Modern School
Maltings Academy Witham
Lucy Croxall was one of the first schoolteachers at Witham Secondary Modern School when it first opened in 1937. In this clip she describes her decision to take up the post and the catchment area covered by the school. She later became Headmistress there.
The school became known as Bramston School, and is now Maltings Academy. How do you think Lucy’s experiences might relate to teachers at the school today?
