Back in 1984, Haughton Green's St John Fisher Primary School said a fond farewell to long-serving head Miss Hampson.
A lifelong Denton resident, she was brought up a Catholic, attending St Mary’s Church and school.
Back in the early 1940s, Father Moran, a former St Mary’s priest, asked her to promise she would take a job in her home town when she finished her teacher training in Liverpool.
Although her first post was in Ashton, Miss Hampson kept her promise two years later when she returned to St Mary’s as a teacher.
Fast forward to 1966, she was appointed head of the new St John Fisher School where she stayed for 28 years until retiring in July 1984.
