The ‘babies’ class
This is Mrs Wridley’s (I think that was her name) class of 1954. I know I was at school in 1953 because I received one of the blue coronation glasses and a medallion, neither of which, of course, survived into my adulthood. I’m guessing, therefore, that this is the year up from the ‘babies class’.
Fifty seven years ago
Unfortunately, I am unable to remember many of the names of my fellow pupils but fifty-seven years have passed since the photograph was taken and I haven’t seen most of my classmates since leaving the school. I was born in Milner Road and lived there until I was five years old, but continued at Coombe Road until 1959.
