How i loved that sschool, it was like a scene out of thunderbirds when the partition between the class rooms opened. I also remember having to take my shoes off put them in a bag and wear black pumps whilst in the school so not to ruin the polished floor.
Does anyone have any pictures of Miss Hindley and Miss Dean?
i started in Miss Hindley class 1967/68

Just out of sight on the r/hand side I seem to remember a picture of Captain Oates who "may be some time" and it being a good example to us about sacrifice. I also remember Mrs Ashton telling us about Oberamagau and will be going there next year to see the passion play held every 10 years

The Burglar was me Robert Rotheram --there was a John Rotherham who was older and I think went to Moss Lane at this time. Far left with trilby is Barry Hill and Policeman on left (as you look) Fred Blyton. I Loved St. Nats!

Rob Rotherham I well remember you.You were a good footballer,a good dribbler.As I recall, I'm sure you lived on Walthew Lane,possibly next door to Eunice Bibby.I lived on Neville St just up the road from you.Where are you now ?.It would be good to meet up & chew the fat over about the good old days at St Nat's. My e/m is attached to this posting if you want to get in touch.Regards 'Robby'.
