Thank you for posting and bringing back many memories.

I do remember Mrs. Dolling from the science labs. I do believe the photo to be from 1971 as Mr. Francis was the form teacher for our final two years (4A1 and 5A1). 1968 would have been LA1 and Mr. Littlejohn.

Back Row- Christopher Domeny,?,?,?,?, Angela Bath,?,?,?, Robin Cooper, Paul Bird, ?, Jeff Dingle, Paula Banham,?

The one with the mop of hair not paying attention is me, David Cook. The hairs mainly gone nowadays but the attention span is still about the same.

The boys you missed . Between Paul and Jeff is Alan Palmer. At the end is Paul Van Der Kerkoph. The boy sitting at the front was a Scottish lad George? that joined us for a while.

Some of the missing girls names are IIRC Anne Harrison-Smith, Susan Berger, Pat Rubery, Michelle Davis and Julie Bines.

Haven't seen much of anyone since we left as most of them went off to college and I went straight into the building trade, which didn't last long. I spent most of my life as driver of HGVs, Heavy Plant and Taxis.

Some memories of the boys

Christopher Domeny saw him about 10 years after we left and he was still in education studying politics I believe.

Robin Cooper . One of my friends at school. Went to Cambridge Uni I believe.

Paul Bird. The big fella of the class.

Alan Palmer. Very Tall

Jeff Dingle. Hooker in the rugby team.

Steven Field. Another mate of mine, lived near me in Waarden road.

Lionel Coles. My nemesis , the only person that I ever had a fight with.

Martin (Banger) Edwards went to work at Wiggins like me.

Tony Driver . Lived near council offices and his dad worked for West Ham United

Paul Bryant. Hearing him read out the Korean football team players names when he had a heavy cold still sticks in my brain.

Gary Davey. Picked him up in my cab one night and took him home to South Fambridge.

The only girls I have seen on the Island are Anne, Michelle, Angela and Sandra Payne.

Not sure how I can remember all this when I forget what I've come up the stairs for sometimes now. Chances are some of the people in that photo are no longer with us. I hope they and those of us still around  had a happy life like I've had.

Just remembered that my favourite lesson was music, not that I was any good or remotely interested, mainly because I could look out of the window and watch the Batchelor boys racing their cars and motorbikes around the bungalows they owned on what is now Sainsbury s car park.
