My sister and I attended St Catharines School, as did our mother before us, and other family members. This is a photo of my sister’s class taken around 1952, apologies for the many unnamed pupils. We recognise them very well, just can’t recall their names at the moment. I have colourised what was a black and white image.

Many thanks those extra contributions. Based on them I now believe an updated list should be as follows but is not fully complete and I stand to be corrected. Still unsure where to place Ernest Morris, David Connor or Johnny Whitfield.
Back Row:- Alan Unsworth, Paul Yates, Roy Pitcher, Geoffrey Maloney, Trevor Griffiths, Malcolm Craig, Michael Hitchmore, Leslie Peet, Brian Gore, Roy Sturgeon, Ernest Morris or David Connor?? which?
Middle Row:- ----?, ——?, ——?, Jimmy Cook, Graham Kearns, George McDonald, Ken Sumner, Norman Blackledge, Alan Finch, Jimmy Stevens, Tommy Taylor, Graham Forrester?
Third Row:- Ann Winnard, Pauline Sherrington, Ann Walder, Christine Mason, Glynis Cherry, Jacqueline Knowles, Jacqueline Cunliffe, Doreen Finch, Anne Bowen, Pauline Winstanley, Christine Seddon.
Front Row:- Brenda Taylor? or Holmes?, ——?, Margaret Rudd, — Ashcroft?, Christine Parr.
