The Post Office along with most Government Etc concerns did not keep women on after marriage 

Also the equal pay act did not come in till 1970 

when I started on Royal Mail in Twickenham as a postman there were no women

It seems that there might be a question about the location of Broadfield Down - not that it in anyway answers your question about schools in that area!

Where was Broadfield Down was it Wrington or Blagdon?  I think it was roughly the area covered by the current Airport.  See vision of britain.

Few women in this photo and also they are all (?) 'Miss'.... I am sure I remember hearing that in some (or many) local councils is was pretty much the rule that it was expected that a woman quit her job when she got married.  I think that applied right up into the 1960s in some councils

Mention of an interest in schools reminds me of a small mystery in my tree. My maternal 3xGGF was Rhoda PHIPPEN who was apparently born in Blagdon c1801. I haven't found a baptism record although I believe she was the daughter of Robert PHIPPEN and Hester HOOKE who were married at Bedminster on 4 September 1797. Rhoda PHIPPEN married William COLES at St Pauls, Clifton on 13 July 1825. William COLES died in 1833 and was buried at Butcombe.

Now to the point...At the time of the 1851 census Rhoda COLES was living at Broadfield Down, Blagdon. Her Rank, Profession or Occupation was recorded as "Formerly School Misstriss (sic)". So, my question is: can anyone help identify which school she taught at, please?

These were the main Council Officials listed in the 1941 Street Directory - probably not surprising that there were no women here at all!  There was just one female Borough Councillor - Mary BROWN representing East Ward.
