The Infant Head Teacher in 1957 was Miss Eleanor Johnson, and the Junior School Head Teacher was Mr Birch. Our first infant teacher was Mrs Sherrington. The School Secretary was Mrs Melling, who always had a kind word for any child who was upset or distressed. Mr Tasker was the school caretaker. Please let me know if any of the names on the photo are incorrect, and if you can help in filling any gaps. Happy Memories! Michael A. Mason

Michael Mason, I remember you! If my memory is correct, we both ended up at Highfield, until you passed the 14 plus exam and then went on to Thomas Linacre. Pardon me if I'm incorrect, I'm going back nearly 50 years.
My email is attached, communicate, if you feel appropriate, if not take care, regards, Syd.

Thanks for your corrections Graham - it's a long time since our school and Boys Brigade days together!. When I get my login reminder from Wigan World I will attempt to update my initial post. Trusting all is well with you and yours. Kind regards, Michael
