Jeremy Paxman has been to Talbot Heath School filming his television series to be broadcast next year on the anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.
His focus in Bournemouth is Rosamund Essex was was head girl in 1917.
He will recall her being warned by a teacher that due to the war most girls will never find a husband and so must make their own way in life. Rosamund became editor of the Church Times.
Research reveals that the teacher, which I did not know, was head teacher Mary Broad.
“The school is proud to recognise Rosamund Essex as an Old Girl of Talbot Heath and a superb role-model for the girls today…as Talbot Heath celebrates A Year of Inspirational Women,” says Talbot Heath.
