Margaret Davies née Cocksworth (OS Former Member of Staff until 1944)

The School was saddened to receive the news that Former Member of Staff during the war, Mrs Margaret Davies née Cocksworth, has passed away aged 102.

Our thanks to Old Stopfordian Alan Worcester (OS 1944) for informing the school.

Last year we received the following recollections from Margaret’s daughter, Helen Johnson:

My mother, Margaret Davies, taught at the school during the war.  She had fond memories of teaching the younger boys, especially of their excitement about her readings from the newly published “Hobbit”.  She used to recount how they would greet her outside the classroom asking “Miss, Miss, is it the Hobbit today?”
