This was my class in 1960 - I am sat front row on the extreme left - the little one with the specs! I believe our form master was Mr Collier. I lived in Wigan until moving to Dewsbury West Yorks in April 1973.

I was in the same year, but in a different form i.e. Form 3T. I can name most of the boys on the photo. Mr Colly was the teacher's name he was a History teacher who was also a Rugby Union referee

This was my class Ron, but I am not on this photo. I must have been off school when this was taken.

Oops slipped up there, must have had the wrong glasses on.
I am sat next to the teacher. I can also see Melvin Morton, Roy Painter, Graham Braddock, John Lythgoe, Ron Daniels and Frank Richards.

I think your mistaken Jimmy, Frank Richards isn't on the photo.

Ron, Frank is 5th from left on the back row

Sorry my mistake. I wouldn't have recognised him.

the boy to the left of Frank Richards must be chubby Ray Dowling from Haydock

I'm sure the correct spelling is Mr Colley. "Come here and be tweeked"
He was my form master - 3S - 1960/1
