Class 1A photographed in 1951?

This is a photo of Class 1A Fawcett School.  My brother, Norman, is the 2nd from the right in the 2nd row. 

I am fairly sure this picture would have been taken during 1951 as Norman would have been 11 years of age in that year.

If you can recognise yourself or anyone else here, please leave a comment below.

  • Definitely 1951/2 depending on when in the term it was taken. That’s me third row up and second in from the right with the Dandy stuffed in my jacket and next to me in the light jumper was John Smith and holding the placard I think is Peter (?) Hepworth. Other names that come to me are Packham, Blacker, Palmer, Claridge, Thorne, Holt and Watling The boy in the back 2nd from the right was named Cowley, who was always top of the class. If it is Mick Holt (1st row 2nd from the left) he has been a contributer to this site regarding Fawcett School and may be able to name some more.
