Following in the footsteps of The Beatles

SCHOOLGIRLS in Leamington are following in the footsteps of The Beatles to help find a lollipop person.

Prep pupils at The Kingsley School have recreated one of the most recognisable record covers in pop music history in an attempt to find a crossing patrol person.

The four girls stepped out on the zebra crossing in Beauchamp Avenue – which runs between the prep and senior schools – just as the Fab Four did for their 1969 Abbey Road album.

The Kingsley version was set up to draw attention to the difficulty the all girls’ independent day school is having in recruiting a person to help pupils cross the road in the afternoons when lessons end.

The job is open to men and women of any age and is term time only, five days a week. The rate of pay is £7.19 an hour and full training and uniform is provided.

Kingsley’s Deputy Head Jo Bailey said: “Whilst it is Warwickshire County Council who employ the crossing patrol person, they will quickly become one of the most recognizable members of our school community and, I am sure, very popular with the girls.”
