Folkestone Swimming Pool, built in 1936: Wednesday mornings by coach, horror at seeing the water temperature level chalked up outside, rubber ankle rings to claim our cardboard clothes boxes, cheese rolls afterwards while watching Egyptian channel swimmers in training.

In 1954 Audrey Taylor won the national Kennett Cup for schoolgirl swimmers over fifty metres, a most coveted trophy.
The land for creating the hard tennis courts adjacent to the Junior School in the corner of Grimston Gardens was presented to the School in 1954 by Mr George Stone, Doreen's father, and a well-known local property developer. To this generosity he added a silver trophy, the Doreen Stone Cup for the best marks in the Common Entrance examination: the first Junior Cup.
Joy Heanley
left in 1960, with a tennis record that seemed to send her, in the words of The Folkestone Herald newspaper "heading for the Centre Court at Wimbledon.". She won our singles tournament and cup two years running. In 1959 she won the Kent Junior Championship and played for the county against Middlesex. She won the Folkestone Open Ladies' Singles and the Nunally Salver. In 1960 she was invited to play in the Wimbledon Junior Plate, and won. Partnering Sarah Crump for two seasons they never lost a set.
