I can remember some of the faces is it ADDISON 2nd from right back row? This year was three years below my year. I left in 1962

Definitely Addison. I was in year 2 then but I recognize no one. I don’t even recognize the teacher.

Thanks Carl, You must have either an excellent memory or good notes.

One of the innovative things about Thomas Linacre was that boys who had failed the 11+ but done well in the first year of secondary modern were admitted. Stanier and Richards came to the school by this route and they both prospered.
