Below is a list of all the girls taught in the very early prep classes, between 1907 and 1912.  

If you are researching your family's history and would like more information about the people listed, or information that is more recent than 1912, please contact ppc.museum@pursglove.ac.uk . Let us know who you are looking for, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
