The two teachers at the back could be Mr. Turnouth (Headmaster) and Mr. Eastwood.

Hi, thanks for adding the names, Tony Betteridge and Roger Bateman. Your memories are much better than mine, Kind Regards (long time no see.)

It was "Gordon" Crowhurst.

Far left front row, definitely John French.

I'm glad that Bob Kennett has added his thoughts to this and I now totally agree with him that this is John French.  His family lived in Mill Cross Road as I recall.

Yes, they were my next door neighbours at number 17. David, Richard, John, Clive and the youngest Christopher. I remember you Tony (Bev) from Hove Grammar - a demon bowler if I am not mistaken responsible for the memorable dismissal of Rex Hepburn first ball in a school vs. masters match. Halcyon days.
