I was at Scot Lane primary and junior school from 1964/70. i remember the teachers in the photo. On the left was the headmaste rMr Gregory, on the right was Miss Roscoe.
The teacher that played the piano ( remember the collage with all the the fish and shells that was attached to a cloth stuck at the back of the piano)..... her name was Mrs Mcgrath( or Mcgraw)
My best teacher there was Miss Conroy ( married became Mrs Sillitoe).
When Mr Gregory picked his chosen few for the 11 plus class, i wasn't one of them, and got upset, because all my friends were picked for his class.
Miss Conroy gave me extra homework, and when we got our results i was the only one outside of Mr Gregorys class to pass .I was thrilled when Miss Conrot told me . I can even tel you what she was wearing that day. I went on the Girls High School (which became known as Whitley High.)
I have not, and will not ever forget her. thank you Miss Conroy

Loved Scot Lane. Can remember most of the people on this photo - just a few faces I can't put names to. RIP Julie Sinclair and Steven Rimmer

Yes, I attended Scott Lane in the mid to late 1960's - started in Ms. Hindley's class as 5 year old. I particularly remember Mrs. Butler but I can't remember the name of the Head that replaced her. I don't recognise most of the kids an teachers in the photo, though.

Hi Dave, Remember our Rumble in the Jungle (Hamilton Sq)? To decide who was 8th or 9th cock. Presume Ronnie was THE cock with Mickey a close second, just because a good big un usually beats a good little un.
