Where's Chris Dennis?
Happy days - hi Pete Clayton - "Cocky" Dennis was off school after injuring his ankle playing football. I member you all very well.
I don't think the timing is right (57/58 would have made me 11/12 which would have been my first year, I think we were quite a bit older than that) and it doesn't have everyone from whatever that year was. Three people I know of the same age are not there: Geoffrey White, Keith Thompson and Kathleen Wigan, so we must have been streamed into arts/science by then.
I think Lynton's right, we all started in 1957, so this must be 1959 judging by the summer dresses. Oh dear, nobody remembers me, next to back row far right. Peter did well with the names, so to add to that, Harold Lowe and Bill Fairhurst
I thought I knew them all but I'm one missing. Girl second row end right. I remember her very well - just can't bring the name to mind. It was Form 4A - under the stairs in the Music Room. 1958/9. Anybody remember going under the floor during lessons? Trapdoor in the corner of the room.

2cd.row. John Heaton, Chris Wilkinson, Lynton Cooke, Harold Lowe, Laurence Billington, Ken Allsop, Alan Blackburn, Graham Hughes, Garth Rigby, Ian Lord
3rd. row. Wendy Ridgeway, Sheila Halsall, Freda Cunliffe, Pauline Lowe, Jimmy Cottam, Pam Heaton, Rosalind Collins, Josephine Unsworth,??.
Bottom row. Allan Wilcock, Peter Middlehurst, Allan Griffiths, Bill Fairhurst, Geoff Cunliffe, Alex Finney.
It was Remove A in the Music Room - the year after this photo. This 4A - formroom was first on the right at the front door. Just remembered.
I think the name of the girl on the far right of the second row was Sheila Hesketh.
And yes, I lived on Leyland Green Road, #29.
Thanks Grip, Of course it was - sorry Shiela.
Alan, thanks for sorting out all the names. Yes we were 4a I think and this was the only class photo taken of us . .Kathleen Wigan was also ill and so not on the photo.
