Hello, my name is Carolina Dávila and I was a Gap Volunteer at Hethersett Old Hall School from 1996-1997.

I am looking to get in touch with the house mistresses, staff and boarders during this time. I was in charge of the youngest boarders, also I used to help the Spanish teacher Lolita.

Thank you very much.





I’m looking to get in touch with Miriam Irving and Amy Hunter.

Gillian Clare Nee Rochfort (Class of 1991)



I’m trying to get in touch with two sisters who went to Hethersett in the 70’s and 80’s – Mary and Susan Dennis. Mary is now called Prickett. I’m an old friend and would love to find them and see how life has been for them.

Many thanks, James



I’m trying to track down one of your old pupils, Victoria (Torie) Robinson. She would have been with you mid to late 90’s. She was my wife’s (Fiona Stanners) best friend at school and her maid of honour when we got married. Unfortunately we’ve lost contact due to constantly moving around the country with the RAF.

Hello. I would love to re-connect with Isabell Butler Stoney, Tracey Mulligan, Susan Pearce, Katherine Lesure (not sure of the spelling).

Good Morning from an extremely Old Girl.

With all good wishes for an excellent Tea Party and I am only so sorry that I cannot get there.

I remember my time at Hethersett with very fond memories but it was so far back at the dawn of time that I mercifully cannot recall the dates. However it would be most interesting to be able to catch up with my contemporaries most of whom are probably all married and now with grandchildren whereas I have managed to escape gliding up the aisle and have a small dog instead.

With kind regards, Petrina Heward

  1. My friend Vicky would love to hear from Meg Wright who would have left around 1990, apparently they used to spend lots of time together in the holidays. Can anyone help?

    • Julie Hoskyns,

      Not sure I remember you but would love to catch up with Catherine Lesieur, Tracey Mulligan, Susan Stuart Pearce etc….. we all left in 1979.

      From Mary (Dennis) Prickett

    • Hi Kenn

      I am Mary Dennis (now Prickett). Haven’t looked on this before but now that the school is closing, I am really sad and devouring all I can about the school. Have we met before?


  3. I left in 1979 and would love to hear from so many people! I was so hopeless at keeping at touch. Tracey Mulligan, Catherine Lesieur – I shared dorms with you several times. I see Gillian (Pickering) and Lucille (Jarrold) on the odd occasion but would love to catch up with anyone else. xx

    Mary (Dennis)

    • OMG! Hi Mary, Tracie here! Cant believe finally found you after all these years? What a lovely surprise – I didn’t think to look on here but it seems every year around this time I remember the choir at Hethersett church which really makes Christmas for me. I certainly didn’t know the school was closing until someone messaged me from my hometown about it. Isn’t it sad? Such a beautiful building.
      Hope you can reply soon. Would love to hear what you have been up to and fab news to hear that you still stay in touch with Gillian and Lucille? Im afraid it was me that didn’t stay in touch very wellxx
      Tracie (Mulligan)

      • Tracie!!

        I have missed you! Where have you been? Last time I saw you I was in Oxford and we were so young! Where are you living now? Obviously, both married. My email address is: marycprickett@btinternet.com….. not sure whether other people will be able to read this. Please email me with your news and whereabouts and there is a plan for our year to get together. Quite a few of us are on this facebook page HOHS – are you on FB?
