This is Form 3A taken in 1959/60. The form teacher Mr. Ward was also the art teacher. After racking my brain the only names I can remember are:-
John Ashley, Barry Atherton, Jimmy Turner, Nash, Peter Spencer, Cunliffe, Alan Ainsworth, Brian Hope, Unsworth, Barry Pilling, Ernie Bates, Barry Mcnamara, David White, Brent Morrison, Tony Whittle, Can anybody tell me any of the others?

Haven't seen this picture before. Dave Stanley is my brother. Mr Ward was my art teacher when I landed at Ashton Secondary some 13yrs later and he didn't look much different then he does in this photo.The wooden clad building in the background brings back memories too.

Hope someone can help... Trying to get hold of Brian Hope as pictured here. I was in the Navy with him and have lost his contact details. We get Christmas cards from them every year but have no idea how to get back in contact with them. Does anyone know Brian, his wife Hilda or any of the kids?

Any help much appreciated!
