Reviving an old thread. I was sent to Styal in early/mid 1965 (probably) as I was a very poor school attender and they perhaps thought I needed some discipline and structure.

I didn't like it and just didn't settle and tried to run away on lots of occasions, usually making it out of the gates though not very far after that. They took to strapping me into my bed at night for a while. I think my experience was OK on the whole but I never took to it and may have been there for less than 6 weeks, I do remember being astonished at some of the girls having been there for years.

The only thing I do remember in any detail was being taken to see Carry on Cleo (!!) at the cinema. This was released in December 1964, I do not remember it being winter while I was there which is why I think it must have been early/mid the next year. No clue which house I was in.

Hi, I spent some time in Styal Open Air school in the 50s, I would have been around 4 or 5 years old. My name is David Cale but I doubt if anyone would remember me.

You forgot Lyles Golden Syrup if you were mates with the kitchen monitor. Usually me! Yes will look you up but give me an idea what your profile pic looks like.You wouldn't believe how many have the same name and we were kids then so let me have a clue! Just recently been in touch with my best mate from Peter Pan House.
I have put some good pics of the school when I took my two children there in the eighties. It was holidays so sneaked in. Think it was the Rotten Bollin School then.The schooltat gave our staffa very bad and unjust name. Anyway I am on Facebook so is LesSherwood his profile is with his wife so look him up. I am looking forward to going back up North to see Les. I now live in North Devon. My profile is my young son just about to do a recital on the piano.Barry Plant.
Take Care buddy.
Hope to here from you again. I Loved Styal.
