Can't think more names faces yes.
Yes, this is Class 3A from 1962/63. I'm 3rd row, 4th from left. This was my last year at Whelley as I passed the 14-plus and was transferred to the Grammar School in 1963. Instead of leaving Whelley with zero qualifications, I went on to get a degree at university and became a civil engineer. Amazing how life can take a sudden turn.
