Regent's Park School / Schindler School

My father put me into a fantastic establishment called Regent's Park School, in Hampstead, Maresfield Gardens... We played cricket in summer, we played football in winter. Our Eton teacher was in fact a member of the British Olympic pole vaulting team. And in the in the school yard, in Maresfield Gardens, he showed us pole vaulting which was quite frightening, almost supernatural. He wasn’t a champion or anything but he was one of the team. There was this enormous bamboo pole and he vaulted over high goal posts and things. And we tried this of course and it was absolute murder. We just fell on the floor and couldn’t do anything. But we were taught English school songs.
