Pam Heaton became Pam Collinson, and we play golf with her husband and her at Ashton.

Alan, yes I remember she married (can't remember his first name)Collinson.. I saw Pam 4 years ago at the Rectory Rd school Anniversary Reunion....Alan Griffiths, did he live on Leyland Green Rd do you know? Jondav or Pam would know if you don't...

Janet, Pam's husband is Len Collinson.
I think the boy sitting on the ground, 1st left is Alan Wilcock from Spindle Hillock.

Happy days - hi Pete Clayton - "Cocky" Dennis was off school after injuring his ankle playing football. I member you all very well.

Comment by: Lynton Cooke on 22nd October 2013 at 11:23

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.

Comment by: Ian Lord on 23rd October 2013 at 18:48

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

Comment by: Alan Littler on 6th November 2013 at 12:24

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

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.

Comment by: Allan Griffiths on 11th October 2014 at 14:44

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.

Comment by: Alan Littler on 12th October 2014 at 21:26

Thanks Grip, Of course it was - sorry Shiela.

Comment by: Sheila Halsall on 22nd November 2014 at 21:48

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.
