This is lovely, and so reminiscent of my own infant school days. I love the little girls' kilts and hair-ribbons and the little lads' short pants. There was such a homeliness about those old classrooms. especially in the Winter term as the nights drew in (school only finished at 4 0'clock then). I would love to do a "Gary Sparrow" and just walk back in time into that room.Thanks for posting it.

Hello, this picture is amazing! I am currently a teacher at Britannia Bridge and would like to teach my class about the schools history. As part of the new Curriculum we have to focus on a local study and what better than to learn about the school within which they spend there days. Would anyone be interest in coming into school to show my class around giving a description of the changes and how life used to be? e.g the way you dressed, what you ate for lunch and snack, what the classrooms where like, how you were treated etc. They would love to meet an original Britannia Bridge Pupil. Please please please can someone get in touch. My mobile number is 07714755822. My year 4 class, currently known as Dragonflies Class, would love to meet you. Kind regards, Karen Williams
