I think the young girl sitting at the left of the front row may be my sister Elizabeth. She tells me that the year would be correct and she remembers most of the names. Does anyone know some of the girls' names to help her recall?

As a P.S. to my comment. It is my sister. Looking through the family's old photos, we found the individual photo taken at the same time.

I think this photo is Southdown school and the teachers were Mr Smith and Mrs Angel. My brother Barry was in this class.

That's my Dad, Roy Holder, at the end of the third row.  My uncle Keith Holder is also in the photo, he moved to America many years ago but is sadly no longer with us.

Which Southdown is this because the one in North Wales Buckley is the one I'm looking for info on.

The clue is in the title of the website Matteo "Our Newhaven" in this case it is the Newhaven in Sussex which is where the Southdown School is located.. Hope this helps.
