I think this photo was taken prior to 1956. I was there from Sept 1955 to end of summer 1957. i.e. all of 1956. A lot of the pupils pictured were in my class but not all. Some pupils would have been moved to different classes ( A B C etc. ) as each new term intake moved in. These new pupils would come from : Argyle St. juniors St. Peters juniors and All Saints juniors (that's me !) Many of my classmates left in 1957 having passed exams for Horwich technical college (boys only) or Leigh technical college (that's me again) (boys and girls) I still have my school photograph taken in exactly the same spot as this one, I think photographs were taken towards the end of the summer term so mine is either 1956 or 1957 ( I think 57 ) Unfortunately I have not got a clue how to submit this picture on line !!! In my day it were all clockwork and steam !
Mike I am sorry but there is way you were in this class or
this year It was me who put names to all these faces,I don't
know your name the Only Featherstone I Know was Harry sorry
Derek you are right I was not in this class or the photograph, that is why I know it is pre 1956. However by then I was at Argyle Street and the class that I was in had a lot of the pupils pictured in this photo. My school photograph pictures them to be a couple of years older. In conclusion I did join your year, with others, at a later date but by then pupils had moved between classes as I explained earlier.
Lets fast forward this class to 1956 and add more names : Michael Featherstone, Brian Pilkington, Alan Brown, Alan Picton, Frank Parr, William Cowburn, Michael Aspinall, William Brett, Marleen Pendlebury, Anne Eckersley, Barbara Sproston, Jean Ashhurst, Cheryl Eckersley. The teacher then was Miss Dorking although she got married whilst I was there and changed her name. Looking at my class photograph Derrick I think you are in it and I am stood right behind you !! I do not remember you either but can anyone name all their classmates from 60 years ago?
I have just found out that Argyle Street also took pupils from Castle Hill school Barbara Sproston and Betty Farrimond came from there, these two were in my class. Happy new year to all mike.
Michael. All the people you have mentioned except you I can
remember the year was the year after our photo I hope this
puts you right thanks. D.C.

Thank you for the lovely photos. My mum Dorothy Halsall went to Argyle Street. She was born in 1946 and lived in George Street Hindley.
She is looking for school pictures and also a photo of Miss Lleweylin. Does anyone have any?
