These four images are submitted on behalf of ex pupil David Tarr. Apart from the first photo not many of the individuals in them have been identified and perhaps others could help?
The first was taken in 1954.
Top Row left to right:- Leslie Mansell, David Burstow, Peter Hurd, Brian Hamper, David Wells, Ian Jennings, Roger Hayler, Terry Hoad, Ridgewell?, Patrick Kelly, Fred Starr, John Attwood, Graham Stafford, Kenneth Broomfield.
Middle Row:- Russell?, Colin Wilson, David Shields, Terence Hornsby, Gerald?, Mr. Nicholas?,Weeks, Robert Parsons, Clive Henty, Richard Harris, ?
Bottom Row:- Peter Kirby, David Tarr, Vic Wills, Patrick French, David Collier, Terence Stewart, Peter Wickens, Brian Denyer, Michael Harris, Eric Maxwell, Edward Micklam, Michael Wootton.
The second photograph is of the third eleven football team during season 1955/6. Vic Wills is third from the right at the back, David Tarr third from the left seated then Brian Hamper next to last – it could be Brian Denyer holding the ball.
Third photo shows the second eleven in the 1956/7 season. Derek ‘Midge’ Martin is the teacher on the left, his wife Viv taught at the girl’s school at Portslade. Brian Hamper is fourth from the left standing, Vic Wills is second from the left seated with David Tarr next to last in the same row.
Lastly a shot of a scene from the school play of about 1956. David Tarr is on the left but, again, none of the others can be identified.
