I showed this picture to Joyce & Christine (Cunliffe) and they gave me the following names....
Back Row L-R, Frank Brindle, ?,Joan Morgan,Gwyneth Evans, ?,Barbara Prudence,David Johnstone.
Middle Row L-R, Carol Brown, ?,Denise Wild,Janet Lockett,Irene Atherton,?.
Headmaster Mr. Nelson.
Maybe someone can fill in the missing names.

I am not in this picture but I remember everyone who is.Irene Atherton was my best friend in junior school and I often had lunch at her house,they were very happy times.Mr Nelson was another thing,straight out of a Charles Dickens novel.

I was looking through old photos of St Peter's when i realised that this would have been my class if we had not moved to Birmingham in 1957. I remember Janet Locket with whom I exchanged letters for a few years and David Johnstone who had a wonderful train set. I remember sitting on the steps at Bryn station with him watching trains and getting into trouble with Miss Green (my aunt) for being late. I wonder if anyone remembers Mrs Sharratt as a teacher
