Young Pupil 3rd row 5th in Is my father, the one I have never spoken too in eight years, now he lives in billinge
Hi Mike,that's very sad. Not having spoken to your father for so long. I remember him very well. He lived in the houses on the left as you go up to Winstanley just passed where the traffic lights are now. I remember going up to his house one Saturday. Him and his friends had built a 'Hut' in a small wood opposite to where he lived I was fascinated with it as it had a carpet on the floor. L.O.L.
2nd row 3rd right, Booth. Only chap managed to get to Grammar school.
There were six other boys, on this photograph,(including me)who passed their 11+ but went to the Thomas Linacre Grammar School. Melvin Morton, Raymond Catterall, David Santus, Ronald Daniels, and Steven Bland
I think it was the border line cases, wasnt it, who went to that technical school. It was, sort of, a proto type for the comprehensives that were to come.
Hi Ron, thats me middle back row my dad was a manager at plessy what a great photo
Hi Judy Guess nee Nolan
How are you remember i served my time as an apprentice at ATE Plessey from 1960-1968, then onto an electronics company in Brighton, Sussex, then i finished up as an Engineer working for Norweb United Utilities. I took early retirement in 2002 and now work part time as a Health & Safety consultant for myself. How is Barry Guess i have not seen you both since you emigrated.
I Whittaker, No the Thomas Linacre was a PROPER GRAMMAR SCHOOL on a par with Wigan Grammar School but was more Technically biased with regard to the curriculum. We had a choice of the TLS or the Grammar School. I along with the other five boys who passed their 11+ chose the TLS.
