This photograph was taken no later than 1957. The September term of that year saw many of my classmates including myself start at either Horwich secondary technical college (boys only) or Leigh secondary technical college (boys and girls) I went to Leigh. Entry to these Colleges gave a second chance at age 13 to all of us that had failed the 11 plus and had not gone to Hindley grammar school.(I was promised a new bike if I had passed!) Bearing in mind the date this class would have been 2a when this photograph was taken. I did get a new bike in the end I bought myself one on my 50th birthday, still got it!
