Fawcett School, York Place

Friends made my experience fantastic

By Peter Butcher

I attended Fawcett Between 1954 and 1959. I learnt a lot about the misuse of authority and a few other things as well. The form master here was Jaz Bolton. He was ok. Firm but fair. The photo here is from either 1955 or 1956. I will fill in as many names as I can.

Front row - Mickey Harris; Hugh Beeson; Chris Sharp; Mickey Haslam; ?; Gary Turner.

2nd row - ?  ? Hugh Douhney. ? Jaz Bolton. ?; ?; ?; ?

3rd row- Barry Hall; Chris Simms; ?; Allan Manchee; ? ;?; ? penfold. John Wyatt; ?; ?; Peter Butcher

Back row- Sam Weller; Paul ?; Bob Collins; Clive Parkin; ?; Geoff Minter. David Langston; ?

I had a fantastic time at Fawcett , made a lot of friends, who I unfortunately did not keep in touch with. It was the friends that made the experience fantastic, not the school. 

Can you put some names to faces? If you can, please post a comment below.
