The School at the End of the Lane was a hardback book published by the Reedham Park School Parents Association in 1992 to honour the Diamond Jubilee of the school and the head-mistress who established and led it for 60 years, Miss Inez Routledge OBE.

The school closed in 2020 – that’s another story – and the book has long been out of print. Fortunately a copy still exists in digital format, and this is reproduced here as a tribute to a unique and sadly missed school and a memento of a much-loved (and feared!) head teacher.
