This is a photgraph of Class 4R. We were the those who had failed the 11+ exam but passed it a 12 years old. We were therefore expected to complete 5 years schooling in 4 years - not easy.

I remember that Renee Hesketh was into body building and that he emigrated to Australia he planned to become a saw doctor but whether this was before this photo, I can't remember.

Just remembered something else - Rodney Smalley used to come to school on a Zundapp Bella scooter once he was old enough to ride one, I think he travelled from Chorley. Caused a bit of a sensation at the time.
