Cool. Front 'line' L-R is Ridley, Bradley, Hamilton, Elsie Steel, Smith.
Joe Grant is on the left, between the "E" of Sutcliffe sign and the carriage lamp.
I can't actually see Ray Douglas or Jimmy Golding in the background.
Not certain which is ¿Kenny? Bond.

The young lad, bottom left corner as you look at the photo, has been bugging me as I am sure I have seen him before. Took a while but then it clicked - Bedlington Grammar School photo posted on Facebook group Bygone Bedlington and part of the comment was :- '.......... and Gordon was the talented young upstart from the fourth year.......'
Not a name I knew, but I'd say you're right. Now looking at the band photo which looks a couple of years later there are also 2 youngish lads stacked on the steps, right of centre. Could they be the trombonists in the quartet? G Railton (could be in that position) and possibly Turnbull or Dickinson behind/above?
Unfortunately not - the four names published with the photo are :- L to R - Peter Carrigan, David Clark, Gordon Ridley and William Smith.
