Photo Information for Barrington CP Class6 1955 with 3 names

Recommended Comments

clanbull - This is Kingsley Wake = No 11 on this 1955 photo - he was named by Alan Dickson, No 8,  and Ernie McGeorge (not in this photo). As this is Class 6, end of term photo, they would all be 11 years old (or a few days off) in this photo, ready to move on to the senior schools in September 1955.

I bow to their superior memory!

However, KW must have jumped a class (he was quite brainy) as we were in class 6 together and we both sat the 11+, he went on to the grammar school.

Also, the girl at 32 is one of my cousins and she was a year older than I.

I know what you mean about the jumping classes. It was the norm at Barrington. Anyone in class 4 that they thought had the potential to pass the 11+ jumped class 5 to spend 2 years with Mr Hunt in class 6. 

Mick Young (Waverley Drive) was adamant that in the partial class photo c1958 No 7 was my brother Derek as he was in class 6 with him but our Derek had jumped class 5 and spent two years, one with Mick, in class 6. The No 7 is my other brother, Dennis, that did not jump class 5.

Attempting to drag the memory back 50 to 60 years does throw up some interesting results. There is a 1960 Class 6 photo in the album that I stared at for days before I realised No 15 was me!

Hopefully there will be more class photos dragged out of old shoe boxes and we can work the memories some more.
