Numbers added @Rigger. This one was posted on the sixtownships group by John Dawson with the info - Class 5  - 1965. However this is another copy, posted on Bedlington remembered by  'Alanc' as  Class 4R1 1965 with 7 names  :- Joe Knox - Alan Charlton - Kenny Campbell - Lenny Wilson - Maureen Hindhaugh - Yvonne Logan & Billy Stoker. But the names were not linked to individuals. These names also appear on another photo in this album that is labelled - Westridge Class of 1965 posted by Alan Charlton.

I have to admit that 42 looks like Gladys Stewart but I wondered what she was doing in this group as she would be a couple of years younger than those I recognise. Could this be several classes or some other combination of pupils (as there are three teacherst here)?

I agree with Rigger but with reservations for Pat French/Kathleen Brown. 

I also agree that #25 is Ann TYLER, not Ann Smith. I can also confirm that #20 is indeed Pat May and #33 is Joyce Butcher. It's amazing what a bit of memory jogging can do! Thanks Rigger.

With Pat French vs. Kathleen Brown I'm not sure. These two looked quite similar and I'd completely forgotten Kathleen. I'm leaning more towards Kathleen now but not 100% sure.

There's another girl in this class who's name hasn't cropped up yet: Dorothy Dickinson. Could she be #19 or #35

Thanks Lorraine! #16 is indeed Margaret Coppin, though I wouldn't have recognised her from this photo - or you yourself.

@Canny lass + @Rigger - Mick Hedley - Facebook sixtownships group  says No 3 - John Foster & No 21 George Scott. Derek Stephenson - Facebook Bygone Bedlington - also confirmed No 3 as John Foster and added - 'not sure if his father ran The Howard Arms'

Error 20 whilst I was updating the image above so couldn't change it.  

And whilst I was typing this George Scott, Facebook Bedlington remembered also confirms No 3 and himself at No 21.:)
