Robertswood School. This was previously Cheena School.  In 1983 Gravel Hill First, Gravel Hill Middle Schools joined it to become Robertswood Combined School. In the 1920s this was the site of White Lodge – which is assumed to be the house still on site. This later became the home of Sir S.H.Freemantle who had been a distinguished British official and author in the Indian Subcontinent. During his occupation the house became ‘Cheena House’ – Cheena being a village in what is now Pakistan.
