Pippa's mum (Mrs Williams) taught Latin, Embroidery (only to the girls of course!) and riding. We had some memorable treks around Kaptagat on the ex-polo ponies and some great gymkhanas too. She also taught sport - hockey I definitely remember. Although I can also remember Jupp shouting at us and calling us "a load of broody hens" while we languished in defence! He also distinguished himself by his habit of chucking chalk and once I nearly copped the eraser, but got my desk lid up in time to deflect it.
Honestly, when I think back to those days, it's like a St Trinian's movie or a Famous Five novel!
