Hi Anne I remember that happening when I was in Nursery someone got locked in the room, they stored the chairs in in the Nusery part of the school. But that would have been in the late 1940's so it wouldn't have been your brother I don't think?
I didn't get on well with Mrs Thomas, had a few run ins with her and she ended up sending for my dad. Anyway the outcome was I moved from there to Highfield School, which was nearer to where I lived in Pemberton. I originally lived in Spring Street hence me going to Warrington Lane School. Everything turned out fine, as I passed my 11 + and discovered that, in the class I had left, at Warrington Lane, not one person passed their 11+
Forgot to mention a teacher called Derbyshire , who ended up a Pem Sec School. He didn't like me either<g>
she was firm we lived in silver st my elder brother jacky and elder sister lilian also went there i do remember gail and a couple others passed eleven plus may have queued in taylors chippy sometime
I left the school when I was 7. I remember being in a Christmas Play when I was a dog?????? At the time I had a carbuncle on the back of my neck and I can remember all the mums sympathising with me. I also remember the small present! of paper and card we got at the Christmas Party they had in the school. Small books with pictures, which when you wet them with a brush turned into colour and small card puzzles, given by various companies. It was all advertising really, but I thought they were FANTASTIC. Played with them for hours. How happy and content with our lot, we were in those days.
I was there from 66 till it closed and became the teachers training center .My Teacher was Mrs Fish I remember Mrs Walton and the large rocking horse.OH and the play fountain in the bottom classroom not much else i can remember.
When I was in the Nursery, which If I remember correctly (It was 60 years ago) was down some steps and was lower than the rest of the classrooms. There were two rocking horses, a very large one, and a smaller one. I wonder what happend to them? They would be worth a fortune today.
I left in 1966. A couple more teacher some of you may remember: Mrs MacFarlane and Mrs Dowling.
Also remember Miss Thomas's cat?

Hi Derek you didn't live off Harrogate Street did you? Did your dad work at Hill & Jaynes? I can remember a lad named Lancaster, who I was friendly with, but I thought his name was David?
Hi Ron, no i am not the Lancaster your thinking of,I used to live in Johnson St off Leigh St,my dad worked on the railway.
Hello Anne I remember very clearly when your parents bought a new bible for you and you brought it to school.it had black leather backs and many pictures,it was boxed. D.Barton.

I remember Mr Britton. Also Mr Briggs. I was in the class a year above this one. I recognise Gordon Tarbuck. I use dto play football with him and his elder brother Melvyn.
Yes I agree with you all good times, in fact looking back I rather think we lived in the best of times, I remember Marian Worthington after looking at this picture she does look very mature you could almost take for one of the teachers, Heard Eddie Lynch died around 2006, wonder how many are left, should perhaps have a reunion
Hi I am derek yates and my twin brother is David sadly David passed away in 2004 also the year I had a severe stroke this photo brings back memories. The tarbucks bumped into Gordon and Melvin recently it would be great to see everyone again .
