Saville House School
The photo is of a drawing of Sherwood Hall done by J Michael Hargrove a Texan Artist done for the Tweedie family that lived at Sherwood Hall in the 1940’s.
In the 1960’s it became Saville House School, a private day and boarding school which I am told, had previously been at Henley House (St Marks Church) Mansfield. Oral history says there was also a connection with Sutton-in-Ashfield in the early days of the school. Major David Vaughan is understood to have been the Principal, also Mrs Floyd.
Researching the history of the school is just one part of the ‘Looking Forwards, by Looking Back’ project that Abbey School has just acquired a lottery grant for.
The project is focused on investigating the History of Sherwood Hall by working alongside local people and organisations such as the Forest Town Heritage Group.
We would be interested to hear of any information re Saville House School, or indeed the old Sherwood Hall. Please add comments below or contact me at email@example.com
Saville House School eventually moved to Mansfield Woodhouse.
