Throughout the 1960s Miss R.E. Scargill was headmistress. A tiny, refined lady she commanded respect from staff and pupils alike. Her office was both daunting and welcoming and in the colder months a blazing fire was in the grate.

In the 1960s only girls who had passed the 11+ and had selected the school on their 'choice of secondary school within Wolverhampton Borough form' were considered for entry.

Those who did apply were ranked according to their score on the 11+ test and only the top candidates were offered a place.
