*Peter Richmond was one of the eight boys who came "from elsewhere" in 1941 (The Bailean, 1941, Series II, No. 1, March 1941).


3. Sixth form pupils/prefects, Summer 1946

Back row (l - r):
Peter Richmond | Douglas Hastings Tembey | Michael F. Ollerenshaw | Ron Emery | Leslie Bowler | Danny Corfield

Front row, (seated) (l - r):
June Tindall | Edna Shimwell (later Boyce) | [Elizabeth] Gillian Orme | Avis Wain | Eileen Gopsill | A. Maureen Hursthouse.

A number of pupils spent three years in the sixth form, partly because of the war. For example, Maureen Hursthouse took her School Certificate examinations in July 1943 and Highers in July 1946. Doug Tembey and Michael Ollerenshaw would have taken their School Cert exams in 1944; they were still at the school in the summer of 1947 as Doug was the school's head boy in the school year of 1946/7.

Please get in touch if you can verify the identity of pupils we are uncertain about or fill in some of the missing names.
