Class photograph 1955

St Mary's RC School: class photograph 1955. Click on image to open large version.
From the private collection of Clarissa Granger

Searching through some old photos, i found this photograph of Cottesmore School.

Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the teacher I am kneeling next to, in the front row on her left, or any of the class members.

I believe the year to be 1958/59 or even earlier. Maybe someone does remember and can add some names. Is the teacher Miss Fitzpatrick?

Can you help?

  • Hello Clarissa, the girl in the second row middle was Linda Murray. We used to live near each other in Brighton so often walked to school together. I think the teacher is Miss Fitzpatrick. I posted the photo with Mr Harvey. My surname was Kelly way back then. We used to live in Burgess Hill and my sister still does, it’s changed a lot since the 1970s.

  • If I remember rightly Linda sang Ava Maria on Opportunity Knocks – she had a lovely voice.

  • Anyone out there who was in Miss Fitzpatrick’s class in 1960.
    I left school in the summer of 1961, love to hear from you.
    My name at the time was Susan Spencer.
