Back row; 3rd from the left, can't recall his name, but he was a very talented artist, despite being colour blind; 5th from the right; Me, Roy Hesketh.
Centre row, 4th from the left, Mr. White (woodwork); 5th from the right, Earnie Grifiths (Biology; History; English).
The large cup was the School Cup, won by the House and the two smaller cups were for interhouse sports, I think.
I recognised Ernie Griffiths as soon as I saw him and I was at the Deanery from 1977- 1982. He never changed.
In front of Ernie Griffith = ??? Higson
Roy Woodwork teacher was Chris Walsh.
The woodwork teacher was Mr Walsh not White.Pity you can't add a few names.
Roy what's the occasion? my guess it would be something to do with All saints House winning those three cups.
Frank, it's Ronnie Higson I think.
Front row far left is Roy? Thomas second is Denis Bamber, far right is ? Underwood. Second row fourth from left is Ian? Mc.Donald then me in front of Mr. Walsh, sixth is ? Settle eigth is Ronnie Higson. Forth row sixth from left is John Ward eigth is Sammy Foster,
2nd row 4th along Brian McDonald - The only bloke who I know who could peel an orange in his pocket.
I can add a few names, behind Mr Walsh or (sorpe) as he was fondly named is Humpfrey Holland and in front of him was Bill Oakes friend I haven't seen since school, 3rd row last on right is Malcolm Watson I think.Front row 7th from left Barry Hatton, I'am second from left next to Bernard Thomas.
Another face I recognise is Johnathon Cartwright on next to back row third from left.

Yes I`m still around and well thanks, I don`t remember Michael Gallimore or Ken Stephens but Albert Baines is on the photograph below in front of Jock Shaw.
Ernie Griffiths was a pain at times but looking back he was the best and most respected teacher in the school, keep in touch.
