Many thanks for the identification, Angela.  You mention other people in the photo.  Are you able to locate them for use eg back row 3rd from left etc - so we can put names to faces.  Any help would be much appreciated.

I was in class 4c and was known for my running in sports, fastest in the school, the fourth person from the right looks like the woodwork teacher, not sure if it were mr wood or mr lee. can never understand why they had to pull down such a brilliant school.

I went to Sconce Hills School 1955 to 1959 ... I was in the school choir .. Miss Tipular? was the music teacher at that time ...I remember ..Ann Short, Elsie & Edna Jones, Tony Severs among other's ... I know we had quite a few Pictures taken  but my parents didn't buy them ... I loved going to this school and was very sorry to find it had been pulled down.

I attended the School between 1952 - 1956 and have a class photograph taken circa 1955 The photo on this page was taken around the time I left school. I remember Mr Lee the woodwork teacher (we nicknamed him Tash Lee). I Think it is Mr Bond, the headmaster who is sitting next to him.

Went to That school between 1958 and 1963. Remember Mr Lee and Mr Wood who was scary, but no one has mentioned the most inspirational teacher at that school at the time Mrs Williams who was our final Year form teacher . Have very fond memories of Sconce Hills School and the  school meals .
