FERRYBRIDGE JUNIOR SCHOOL

ADDED 17 AUGUST 2007

I was delighted to find in the June issue of the Knottingley Digest the school photographs of Ferrybridge Junior School 1955 and can help in identifying most of the pupils therein:

On the back row from left to right; Malcolm Backhouse, Kevin Teale, Roy Lowe, unknown, unknown, unknown, Clive Broadhead, Barry Cayton.

Second row from left; Marjorie Yates, Christine Fletcher, Susanne Rudd, Janet Griffiths, Elaine Vause, unknown, Brenda Tennant, Georgina Milton, Pamela Drury.
Third row from left; Angela Ross, unknown, Pauline Hardingham, Iris Bolton, unknown, unknown, Pat Lewis, Ann Thorpe, Janet Hughes.

Floor seated from left; Keith Gowland, George Long, John Cade, Graham Scott, Fred Hutchinson.

I do hope some other reader of the Digest Magazine can name the pupils I am unable to, although I remember all the faces so well, I cannot put names to all of them. In the photograph of pupils studying at individual desks (page 13 top) in the foreground I believe is Clive Wilcock. Clive and his wife Hilary (now retired teachers), reside in Rainford, St Helens, Merseyside, and I had the pleasure to meet Clive a few years ago, who was, by strange coincidence, attending a celebration at the home of a relative of mine who also lives in Rainford.

On the same photograph, the boy at the back on the right I believe is Richard Nethersole. Richard was one of the children who attended Ferrybridge School whose fathers were from the south of the country and were on the management staff at the relatively newly formed Whitehouse Industries, later to be known as Pollard Bearings. Most of these families lived at Kings Villas on Castleford Lane, Ferrybridge. The girl sitting next to me on the 1955 photograph, whose name I am unable to recall, could well be of the same group. I know her face so well it would be so nice to be able to remember her name!
