Teacher was Mrs Speakman I think. Miss Agnes Sherbourne (my aunt) taught the next-to-the-top class. Never got to that level, me & my sister got moved to St Peters in Hindley.

I have just realised that these three photos of Bryn Gates primary were all taken on the same day. They are three classes 8, 9, and 10 year olds. I am on the middle one so it must be summer 59 I think. The seats and the mat on the floor are in the same place.
I know most of the faces but cant remember the names.
Tony Hesketh and John Pete must be on the photo in the middle.
