This is a good photo. I have a group photo taken in St Luke's School playground which is about 57 years old. It is of the school's senior boys' boxing team. If you would like to use on your site my email address is kathleencatt@yahoo.co.uk

I went to the school (Infants and Juniors) This photo is a little before my time by a couple of years, and a grade above me! All the "B's" I'm afraid. But Diane Brenchley used to live three doors away from me. I remember climbing on her father's lorry (a petrol tanker!) with all the others kids in the street, that he used to park up at night in Tilgate Close.

I can't see Michael Heal, who sat next to me in 4a. He must have been ill that day.

Thanks very much for this Laine. I remember you well and would have been able to spot you, but for the girls to your right I needed you to jog my memory. Still some gaps...and after nearly half a century I can't guarantee I haven't invented some of those names.

Good gracious Tim Riley you have a great memory. I do remember all of those names now I am prompted!I remember those days at St Lukes with some joy, not always mind. I was still a good student then! I then became, lets say a challenge for my teachers at Queens Park. I had passed the 11+ but my parents were advised that if I went to Grammar school I would struggle as my early education was in Canada! In those days parents did not question head teachers and I was sent to Queens Park which in all fairness was a good school but I was bored and it was too easy so I messed around and not bad by todays standards but I was a pain and would regularly get sent home to remove my make up and then not return and spent more time in detention for smoking when I should have been in lessons! I left school and spent all my life catching up, and I did. I have been working in Education until I retired.

Bril, how lovely to see all those old faces. Laine, I remember we were naughty together. I too have spent the last 18 years working in education mostly with kids with behavioural problems. Prior to that I was a nurse.

Only just found this! Yes it is me front left - good spot Terry.

Great picture and Tim Riley above got it spot on - that's me, Simon, looking rather serious third from the right on the bottom row. A real memory jerker!
