Fawcett School

Class 2B 1953

By Fred Hards

This is the only photo I have of my four years (1952 - 56) at Fawcett and these are the names that my old grey cells recall.

Back row from left : (?), (?), Bob Friend, ? Sugarman, (?), Alan Daltrey

3rd row from left : (?), Ken Robinson,

2nd row from left : Michael Howard, ? Reynolds, Fred Hards

Front row from left :

Apologies if some names are incorrect and to those who I can't recall. Hope some visitors to this site can fill in the missing names. I reckon it was a fine school and the masters certainly tried to teach the basics of all the main subjects. They were strict, but I don't think it did me any harm at all.

Was that Mr. Wards' class? Can any ex Fawcett boys remember the house names and colours on the board behind the group. Fawcett and Godwin were the first and second, brown and red respectively I think. Was Pelham and Russell among the others? and was that young Mr.Sugerman from the previously mentioned "Rockos" of Queens Road?
