    Hello have just spotted the above photo of my old classmates of 1961, I am no.37
    Stephanie Greenough, not Greenwood as stated! I think perhaps I can fill in a few missing
    names as follows.No.19 Jimmy Walmesly, No.21 Paul Stelmack, No.25 Nerys Jones, No.28
    Marilyn Barber, No.38 Susan Forge. I have also noticed that three of the names do not
    match the numbers given, e.g. Billy Fitton is No.18 not 17, Colin Witherford is No.23 not
    22 and Dave Wilson is No.43 not 42. Hope this helps to fill a few gaps! It was great to
    find this photo and also the 1959 one of the staff as I haven’t seen either before and
    they brought back many memories.Thank you.
