Could Ivor possibly remember what year this wonderful picture was taken?. I, too spent my happy junior schooldays here .............dress wise it looks like my era !!
Hi Jean, almost certain it would be 1951 and the teacher (I think) was Miss Cronshaw (or similar name!)
Can any "old" classmates help me out here? I'm still not sure of our class teacher's name. Was it Miss Cronshaw and was she our 1st year junior teacher? I thought we had Miss Hampson in our 2nd year, then the 3rd year's a "blank" but I seem to remember Miss Lamerton (?). Our final year of course was with Mr Boggis for our scholarship class! Be good to hear from any old friends with a better memory than mine!
Wendy Wilson, my sister who is now 69 and lives in Horwich, is the first on the right on the front row of girls sat on chairs.
I am stood in front of Miss Cronshaw. I think it was love at first sight!!
Next to me is Paul Simpson and next to him is Graham Barnes. I can probably name most of the others if required.
