Left side of the photograph , the elderly man with the moustache I think he was the Headmaster a Mr Marsh. I remember him sitting at a large desk on a raised platform. This would be around 1930. The photo of the lady teachers has Bill Blackledge at the end of the row. It was my impression that he was more interested in Rugby League than academics and I think that several students of my year played for England
