Class 1952

I was at Stanford Road school in 1952 but I was only there about 6 months before going on to Woodingdean County Primary. 

In the photo I am on the front row, first on the left, blond, with my hands on my knees.

  • I spent all my junior school years here and was there in 1952 when this picture was taken.. I was in Mr Smithers class in 52 prior to that Mrs Austin… I was there during the Coronation of our present Queen… I have many memories of these times. We had a penny sweet shop just outside the school rear gate run by a dear old lady from her home. I lived in Albert Road nothing short of the last of the Brighton slums at the time. We walked to school some distance across the Seven dials from the age of Seven, No 4X4 car trips to school and the winters were cold in those days.. I mean cold…

  • My name is Mary Hills nee Purslow and I was in Mr. Smithers class in 1952 age 10. Must have been away that day. I lived in Dyke Road Drive and walked to school. I do remember Mrs. Furner taught us the Recorder. Later when my family moved to Telscombe Cliffs I spent my last 6 months at Newhaven County Secondary School where Mr. Furner, Mrs. Furner’s husband was Headmaster. From age 11-14 I went to Patcham C.S.

  • My wife Diana Snelling (nee Bentley) went to Stanford Road School (infants). In the above photo (class of 1952) She could be 4th from the left in the second row up. Can you confirm any names on the photo?

  • Five from the right, second row from the top. We lived in a flat on top of Dyke Road drill hall. I used to walk to and from school with Ann Sadler.
