Rosalind Willatts was a member of staff from 1976 to 1981 and writes as follows:
I enclose a set of photographs I took at Wymondham College in January 1981. They are not brilliant photographs; it was a cheap camera and the negatives, long since lost, were
only about 12x8 mm. Sadly when I was writing on the back the ink did not dry and transferred to the front of the next photograph. The aim was to show what the college was really like.
The Chapel may be a Nissen Hut, but it does not give a feel of what the other huts were like. Even thirty years ago it was nicely decorated, it was well lined, the floor was covered in some
way so it was quieter. The sound of metal chair legs scraping on a bare concrete floor is particularly rasping and unpleasant. Looking at my photographs again after 30 years the general
grottiness of the huts comes out. It was a challenge; good education does not depend on one's physical surroundings.
Photographs of the present Wymondham College show wonderful buildings, Do present staff and pupils really appreciate them or understand what a palace like environment they now enjoy!
