I'm sure that the boy on the front row third from the left is Barrie Jones, he was my husband. He passed away in 1983 aged 23. It was lovely to see the pic of him, now I need to get a copy.

I am the one in the loud jumper 2nd row from back, 3rd from left. Remember Taberner twins on front row of seats with Christine Robson on end of row. David Webster is first on left, back row with Roger Parker next to him.
Jeremy Jones is on my left. Others I remember are Doreen Major, Barrie Jones (think he married Doreen's sister), Pauline Ashurst (her Dad taught me to drive), Mark Forshaw, Colin Farrell, Tony Critchley, Denise Ridyard. That's all for now folks my brain is getting old I think.

Just remembered Alan Clarke next to Miss Swift & Gillian Moore in front of him. My old buddy Graham Miller is sat cross legged with his tie out. Philip Darby is at front first on left. Help anyone!!

I am not on this photograph, I wasn't off sick much but I did break my arm twice and have my tonsils out so I'm presuming this is why! I have a school photo which is a couple of years later than this one (it's in colour!)I will try to find and submit it. I remember Wendy Cherrington who is stood in front of Miss Swift. Best wishes to you all! Anne X

Is that Miss Swift? Some of her teaching methods were good as she taught us our times tables, every morning we'd recite them from 2 until 12. On the other hand, I remember her being impatient and ridiculing a child who had a speech impediment; definitely not acceptable by today's standards.

Wow! searching this website by chance. I am the girl in the back row? left the UK 1970 emigrated to Australia. Don't have any childhood photos this is the only one.would love to get a copy.
