Photos 9 &18 probably on the land just uphill of Hillcrest - above the girls playground, where there was a long jump pit.

Photo 12. I do not remember this photo being taken, but my guess is it would be summer 1955, as I left school in the July aged 14. It is not a class group, we are part of the "Eagle" house athletic team. Standing: left to right - Graham Okines; John Piddlestone; ??; Mick Howell; John Green; John Noakes; Brian "Basher" Highstead; George "Jamie" Mitchell. Seated: left to right - Colin Holden; John Nock; Dave Lambert; ??;??  A memory from my latter school days - I see that John Nock sitting next to me is still in short trousers; we were the last in our year group, by quite a while, to be allowed by our parents into a long pair.  To this day I still remember the bullying and ridicule we both received at the time from our classmates..... I cannot wait these days to get back into shorts!!

 

The last two seated boys L to R are Alan Easton and Les Templeman.

Picture 17 is indeed Pat Kenworthy. She was my mum, but sadly passed away 12 years ago. Very lovely to see a picture from when she was a girl.

I think that is also Pat Kenworthy in photo 9, kneeling at the back on the right, she had red curly hair, freckles & dimples, was full of fun & very popular. We were in the 3rd year together, but not in the same form (I was in Mr. Smith's 3a2 form). Some of us sometimes went to Pat's house at dinner time with her, out of the school gates (not allowed), instead of just to the Tuck Shop inside the school gates! We might have been 4th years' by then. The long jumper looks like David Lower, who used to live in Beresford Road, he was also in form 3a2.
