This was taken by me in the school playground before the end of term and just before we all went our separate ways. Some names come to mind; Janet Middleton, Christine Banks, Susan Atherton, Susan Hannan, Janice ?, Eric Havard, Jeffery Newman, John Waterworth, Norman Radcliffe, Edward ?

Could tell that was my old school from the houses in the background, which are still there, but most in a state of disrepair sadly.
I was at The Bluecoat from 1970 to 1976, Mr.Clarke was headmaster , and my favourite teacher was Miss.Brown who sadly died a few months ago.
Loved my time at this school. Wish I had some photos myself.

Used to go fishing with John Waterworth. Last time I saw him a couple of years ago, he hadn't changed much from this pic.

Further to my above comment - I should have said John was recognisable, rather than he hadn't changed much from the time the photo was taken!
