Acting head !! Had Bill Brace left in '62 ? I was in the first intake in 1953, left in 1957.

Classmate Super hero! Geoff Bryant did the graphics. Also went swimming occasionally at weekends with Les Cunliffe and Tony Donaghue. The next year we amalgamated with the Grammar school. I left Two years later!! Hope everyone is well regards Mike ????????

tony Donaghy tells me. Pete Leyland front row third from left. I think the first two on that row are John Charles and Billy Sedgwick. Dave Keeley and Les Cunliffe next to Mr. Fleming. ??? Banks 5th from right middle row. Les Gordon on my left. Is that Geoff Bryant first on the left on the back row? Tom Broxton fifth from left on middle row ( my guess) Paul McAllister second from right on middle row. (my guess)
