Extended courses were available earlier. My older sister stayed on an extra year and completed the 1954-1955 'extended course' in 5X, a small class of about 16 pupils. Numbers increased over the years and when I stayed on an extra year, 1961-1962 there were two quite large classes, 5X and 5X2.

37 - Is Diane Baxter. Diane was always late for school. She joined what, I think, was the first Extended course and had to travel from Pitsea /Vange everyday which was not an easy journey

Mr.Wanstell used clever Science when he called me & C.Claise out in front of whole class for Talking! What punisment shall we have? SLIPPER! not by Teacher but by each other, slowly & soft @ 1st. "Was that hard enough?" NO! said class.

We 2 Wacked each till it stung hurt our btms!

NEVER TALKED CLASS AGAIN Ever! (Pain & Embarassment & Laughing)

I think the teacher sitting between Mr. Wanstall and Mr. Anthony may have been Mr. Tye. According to the Staff Changes in the school magazine Mr. Tye was appointed in 1956 with Mr. Anthony, Mr. Gilchrist, Mr. Rosen, Miss Hope and Miss Crooks. All the other male teachers have been identified so it looks as if No. 16 was Mr. Tye

Hi Gloria, I didn't think 3 was Pamela Willetts; Pam lived around the corner to me when I lived in Dickens Drive. Incidentally this girl haunts me; she has a much darker skin than Pamela and I keep getting the letter J in my mind; she is in the 1958 school photo, too and just hope someone will identify her soon.

Update on girl number 3 - she is also number 3 on the 1958 photo, page 4, near to Tina Brewer. See what I mean?

11 is Michael Payne. 8 is Alan Caulfield. 7 is Rob Gray

I just looked at No 2 and thought Barbara Huxon? Huxton, No 30 Brian Pierce, Rogers brother and No 3 Andrea does look like Pam Willetts, but I think she has already been found somewhere. Andrea what do you think.

Sorry Colin I think Jean is right on 42 Pat Bartley

Brian thats right, George always had a roll-up on the go, so did Claud as I remember. I'll never forget their mini-van and mini pick up parked together, their tools of the trade. Great guys.

Hi Rich you are correct that is George. I used to go round Georges house after school and smoke roll ups? He lived next door to SX tools in Pound Lane.

Hello Albert, You probably will not know that we are related and are 1st cousins once removed. Your mother Louise Bedford (née Challis) was the younger sister of my grandmother Maud Mary Schofield (née Challis). I have no doubt you will remember my older sisters Ruth & Beryl. I recall visiting your family in King Edward Terrace with my Mum Gladys. Regards
