Photo: Nadine Griffiths (now Hall)
Item #: 9515
Does anyone know any of the names of the children in this photograph?
I think I must have been in the class above this one? I was 7 when I left in 1953. Would love to see a photograph of that year. I can remember a Raymond Stotherts was in my class as well as David? Lancaster who lived near Harrogate St. His dad worked at Hill and Jayne's garage.
Hi - my sister Nadine Griffiths (now Hall) is in the photo b ut I notice Ron mentioned Raymond Stothers - I know him but more so, his younger sister Christine Stothers who was my age and attended the school and in my class - we must have been there 1953 cos we were born 1948 - that would be right?
My sister Nadine is at the far right on the second row from the front - bluddy interesting stuff and more so all the way from New Zealand.
Yes Alan - I know the person on the far right of the second row from the front - Nadine Griffith (Now Hall - she is my sister and I attended the school a year later than she did - I am Judith Griffiths and am now living in New Zealand
I'll try to identify the class as requested. After 56 years with apologies to any I can't remember - here goes.

Another name has just come to mind of a lad who was in my class, David Lancaster, I think? (It was 1953 when I left I was 7.<g>) He lived off Harrogate street and his father was manager? of Hill and Jayne's garage. I have photos. of most of the school classes I was in, but regrettably nothing from my time at Warrington lane.
Someone has mentioned on another posting, that Raymond Stotherts died?
It wasn't Lancaster. I think it was Langton? It is nearly 60 years ago..........
Hello Nadiene great to see these photos have told our Lilian. Iremember all the girls being a happy friendly bunch.
Came across this site by chance, and boy did it bring back memories, albeit a bit unclear due to the passage of time. My name's Ken(Kenny)Hart and I attended Warrington Lane around this time. I was 5 in 52 and I am not sure if this was my class or not - love to know if it was! A lot of the names are familiar such as Angela Morgan, Nadine Griffith, Betty Duke, Stuart Brown, and I also remember Stephen Bradshaw and Derek Armstrong, but I am not sure if they are in the picture or not. Miss Thomas was the Headmistress and I think there was also a Mr Pearson. Stuart Brown's Mum and Dad had the Off Licence in Leigh St if I remember rightly - A good source of "Penny Arrows", and "Penny Bangers" at Bonfire night.. I lived at the bottom end of Spring St near the Garages and the Train Line from Wigan Central, and not too far from the Leeds Liverpool canal. Not exactly beautiful, but Utopia for a young boy growing up. I emigrated to Australia in 1987 and have lived on the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne ever since. Australia is a fantastic country, but my roots will always be in Wigan. Anyone know if this was my class and if I am in this picture?

Hi Michael. Not sure if you were in my class, but I remember your name. Seem to recall playing soccer with or against you on the "grey hill" or Clarington Grove near the Leeds Liverpool canal. Would that be you?

Such nice memories, I really liked Warrington Lane School, and remembering Miss Thomas. Reading everyones comments, and where we are now, my does time fly....I now live in Southern Spain,
But I still always like to visit Wigan, although it has changed so much, but the people are always so friendly.
I nearly fell off the sofa when I discovered the photograph and much to my amazement I actually recognised some of my former classmates, I spent time and money in therapy to get over Miss Thomas but I have fond memories of a Mr Peason happy days
I went To Warrington Lane Nursery and Infant school from 1952 I was 2 years old and can remember My Little bed which had a Golliwog transfer on It we were placed in at 1pm every afternoon for 2 hours. Then My Brother Graham Ridgway and cousin James Twiss used to pick me up on Their way home from Whelley Secondary . I was at Warrington lane until I was 7 and then we Moved to Horwich...
