Norah C. Denny Letters and Queen Margaret's School
Norah Creina Denny was born in Lincolnshire, where her father practised medicine, in 1885. During the First World War she served at home and in France with Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service (Reserve) as a Special Military Probationer.
In 1919 Miss Denny came to Duncan, on what was intended to be a "working holiday"; she decided to stay on, and in 1920 she opened her first day school. Queen Margaret’s School in Duncan continues as a private boarding school for girls to this day. Learn more.
