Aubrey, I am a bit lost here. Can't find you. Could you go right-to-left, and perhaps start with the lad to the far right, wearing dark clothes, to lead us to yourself?

Sorry if you are confused, this was my wife's school. She is seated at the end, on the right. Her name was Jean Darbyshire.

We’re searching for photos of our grandad who went to St Nathanials 1940s
The boy on the 3rd row up 3rd in looks just like a photo we have, that we know is him.
He was called George Edward Higham and he was 1 of 7 children (he was the only boy) and him and his family all loved on Hart street, also his Nan and Grandad lived 2 doors down from them, they was Mr & Mrs Hall
If anyone can help we’d be very greatful XX
