1964 - What a good year!
Stumbled across a 1964, yes 1964, Newmarket Secondary Modern School Photo
What a little squirt I was, and what whacky hair. I was a few weeks off being 16 years old and was the smallest in the class I reckon. Two years later I was 6ft 3" and was working in a pub, honest!

Apologies for the names I've got wrong or forgotten, everytime I look at it I remember more names.
I found another ancient photo from I guess about 1960.
This is of Class 1L in the first year at the Secondary school. Our form teacher was Mr Rowe and I'm sure most people will recognise themselves. The picture was taken in the main hall.
