  • Anyone remember a Tina (Jestina) Leeman at St Chads, lived in St Chads Rd with mum Mary and Dad Elisa Leeman. My mum Tina was born April 1940. Thanks

  • Hi all, I’m Eva Penfold (as was) and I’m 5th from left on front row with Sandra Catto on my left and Iris Smith on my right. I believe that Pauline Smith is next to Iris Smith and Myra’s name was Graham. Afraid I can’t remember the names of the girls on the top row 1st left or 1st and 3rd right.

    Best wishes to all

  • What a surprise when my daughter put this on facebook. I recognise nearly all of the girls in this photo and still see some of them. Cannot believe it was that long ago. Surely we are still far too young to have been there in 1955?

  • I was Iris Smith .I went to Switzerland with Janice Pears andI think someone called felicity I think her second name was Stokes.Does any one remember me and going to Switzerland for 6 weeks with I think a religious organisation?. I then worked at the co-op in St Chads road.

  • I recognised a few names and faces and wondered if anyone had a school photo of the upper 6 form 1956. This was my class and I have still have my school report from my time at St. Chads.
