Mr Matthews class, 2nd year juniors, was taken c1954. Fortunately I listed the names of my classmates on the back of the photo otherwise I would have been really struggling for names. My apologies to the girl on the front row, 3rd from the right whose name I omitted from my original list. Sorry! Perhaps someone can fill in the gap.
With apologies for any misspellings.

Would anyone be interested in an informal recorded conversation over a coffee about their experience at Billingham South school? Currently researching the school as it moves closer towards its 100th birthday. Interested in how the school, teaching, curriculum, discipline and life chances of its pupils has changed over time. Also interested in any photos I could have via email. Many thanks
2nd back row 6th from the left I think is Bill Gooderham not Gutteridge
Is the Roy Smith the one that was the lead guitarist in the Denvers?
Can’t help with the missing name I’m afraid. Roger Reay and Ted Catchpole were in the same class as me at Henry Smith’s in Hartlepool from 1958, as were several others who’d been to Billingham South who aren’t in this photo. (I went to B’ham North.)
Not a fringe in sight 😂
