  1. I was at Heathercombe Brake school between 1969-1971,I was then Bethan Llewelyn and even though we lived in Dawlish I was still a boarder. Does anyone remember me?

  2. Thanks Ian, that would be good. My father was a minister at Dawlish congregational church so that maybe something she remembers about me.

  3. My name was Christine Magney and I was there in May 1963 for what I remember to be the best 12 weeks of my short life. I was 11 and remember being great pals with a boy called Georgie Bell. We got lost on the moors one day and did not get back until late do we had to do the washing up. Would love to hear from anyone there around that time.

  4. Hi I think I was there from 1969 ish? I remember Sue Donut, Patsy someone & Fiona Olgivy I was Pat Young it as a pretty strange place and it screwed up my schooling because by the time I got back into main stream school I had missed quite a bit! only stayed for a while as I was too home sick. I do still bear the physical scars of playing hiding seek and running into a washing line pole and split my cheek open 🙂 also remember escaping down the outside fire staircase and going into town to play on the fruit machines and pin ball!!

  5. ooh! and just remembered Lorraine Evans and Patsy Bloomfield Trisha someone – where are you guys?

  6. Hi Trish was it Trisha Chilcott you remember. I was there 70-77. I’m sorry I don’t recognise your name, I remember Fiona but not the other names you mentioned. I was Lynnda King

  7. Ian, I believe that the last sentence is 100% true, whether or not social media continues, all who spent time at HBS will have both good and bad memories.

  8. I seem to remember Sue Donat, Trish Chillcott , Sue Whitehead, Patsy Broomfield- she was my best friend at the time – Rose Wilmott and a girl called Katherine O Dell, and many more. They were great times and lots of fun. Love to hear from you folks .

  9. Hi was at Heathecombe brake in 1967 till 1970 .when where you there ?

  10. I was there 1974-1977.

    I think Carol Harvey might have been there around your time, can I pass on your email address to her?

  11. Can’t seem to recall the name at the moment but it was a good while ago and it will probably click later. Yes, by all means do pass it on, it would be so nice to keep in touch with lost friends.

  12. I’ve passed on your email address. Good luck with your search.

  13. Thanks very much Ian and good luck in your search also .

  14. My auntie was at this school in the early 60’s She sadly passed away in 1965 I believe at the age of 14? Her name is/was Marlene Hugh. Anyone who knew and has memories of her I would love to hear from so I can pass them onto my mum.

  15. Hi Jemma,

    Was your auntie in Teignmouth or on Dartmoor? Christine Stanborough, who has posted her email address above, was on Dartmoor for one term in 1963

  16. Hi, I was sent there in the 1950s, around 55-56, I have a bible they gave me when I left. I don’t remember anyone from that time as I was unhappy there, the only day that comes to mind was we were taken to Becky Falls, and had to clean off our shoes back at the school in small porch, I was sent there because of being under weight at the time

  17. Alan, I think there were many people who would have shared your feelings. It was so remote that it felt like a different world.
