  1. Hi all
    Just found this page. I am Lesley Holmes, shown in the photo. I remember so many of my class mates: Jean Hart, Rosemary Applegarth, Janet Roberts, Christine Watt etc etc. why did we all lose touch? Does anyone know where Jean Hart is? I’m still in Stockton, recently bereaved, and would so like to hear from anyone who remembers me and would like to meet up for a coffee and a walk down the Grangefield memory lane.

  2. Geoff Crossley (GGS Boys ’59-66) – these girls were exact contemporaries of mine. Great memories. Janet Roberts (Roberts Fishmongers in town) lived across the street from me ; Val Fick I remember as always happy and smiling; Susan Maddison a good hockey player (rapped me on the ankles a few times in the Girls v Boys hockey match); Pam Little (think I had a “bit of a thing” for her) who used to travel in so far from Croft; Barbara Hogg (always attractive !); Jean Mowbray (lived almost at the top of my street); and is that Margaret Davies (ginger hair, front right)? You all may remember my sister Margaret (couple of years younger) who has extremely fond memories of the Girls’ School, now living in Rutland and married to an ex-British Lions rugby player. Happy days, and nice memories ! Love to you all, xxx

  3. I would love to get in touch with my cousin Maureen Glencross.
    We lost contact many many years ago.

    • Hi Ann, your cousin Maureen, and my sister Pat Armstrong, were best friends in school. We moved to Australia in 1963, and my sister lost touch with Maureen.
      After many years, Pat asked me, if I could help track down some of her school friends, and I initially made contact with a Cliff and Irene Thornton, and with their help we managed to track down many of my sisters friends.
      Maureen was one of those friends. Her married name is Drought, and she lives in Ripon, in Yorkshire.
      I have her e-mail address, which I can’t put on this site, but if you e-mail the Picture Stockton crew, and ask for my e-mail address I’m sure they will pass it on.
      You can contact them at, pictures@stockton.gov.uk

  4. Does anyone remember a Juliet Woods … attended until 1960 for sure … not certain which class she was in. I think Miss Millburn was the head at the time.

  6. The teacher was Mrs Lomas. My 1962 school magazine says she taught Latin and Scripture.
    I have 3 black and white year photos and this one in colour so it must have been our 4th year. Class 4A from Sept 1962/1963.
    Another name to fit to a face-Noeline Hodgson. Was Elizabeth Hunter in this photo?

  7. Other names e.g. Christine Hindmarsh, Eileen Nugent – come back but it’s putting them with the right faces! Lesley Holmes is correct too. I’ll search and see if I can find a year and the teacher’s name.
