As above, unknown year, only person I recognise is Fred Hardman, the teacher on the right hand side. Anyone any idea when it was taken and who's who?

Looks like 1950s or possibly early 60s.

Looking through the large window on the right, you can make out a lampshade, that type was used in many schools in the 50s/60s, it's just a case of narrowing it down. I think the photo shows two infant classes.

Teacher on far left was Miss Kay if my memory serves me correctly. 4th from left in middle row was Derek Grundy , far top right was Pat ???. I think i was on bottom row in middle with striped shirt but could be wrong. I also recognise Trevor Rhoden, Barry Turner and Rodney Brockley.
some of you may remember me, i lived a sheltered life!!!

I can make out Christine Bold, Ann Neal, Susan Chapman and Pat Sherrington in addition to those already mentioned. Think the other teacher was Miss Fryer?? Year would probably be 1960/61. Look about 7/8 years old.

Elaine Tunstall and Angela Eatock back row. They look about 7 so that would make it 1959
