Paddock Wood Finishing School – Can you help?

This is a email received from Pippa  Anderson requesting any information about the Paddock Wood Finishing School which was in Lightwater, if you can help her please contact her directly

Hello –

I am the go-to person for all enquiries regarding Paddock Wood Finishing School that was in Lightwater and I was wondering if you or any of your members might be able to help me with a question.
One of the very first Paddock Wood students of the 1949 intake, wrote me when she joined us some years ago….
I’m writing the history of Paddock Wood and the early years of the school really interest me. I wondered whether any of your members or your historical records record this finishing school this (now 89yr old), former student remembers?
I just phoned this lovely lady to see if her memory remembered the name or any other detail of the Windlesham Finishing School, but we eventually agreed that 72 years ago is just too long ago to remember the final detail. She did say that her mother was very disappointed that the Windlesham school had closed, since she didn’t want to send her daughter to a new school which she knew nothing about!
Thank you kindly and I look forward to hearing from you –
Yours sincerely
