I truly hated this school, the headmaster was Mr Welsby and I only remember one teacher, Mrs Roby. Every day was miserable, was so glad to eventually leave.

I attended this school between around 1960 &; 1966. Headmaster, Mr.J. Welsby. Staff - Mrs.Smethurst,Mrs.Woodward,Mrs.Roby &; Mrs.Gilvary. After leaving St.Thomas' I went on to Central Secondary Modern. I lived in Kirkland st. at the time. My family had a coal business in Lyon st. I remember being let out of school to watch the fire at St.Thomas' church opposite, I think that was 1963.

My name is Peter Howard, I well remember; Mr. Welsby; Mrs Roby and Mr. Aldridge, in fact Mr. Aldridge became headmaster of Parr Central and actually taught my two eldest children.
People, I can remember, are; Ian Sutcliffe; Barry Young; Dave Dolan; Harry Lee &; his sister; Welsby, (the head's son; they had the shop opposite our house in Boundary Road; at least I think I'm correct on that?). Some of the girls were; Mary(?) Taylor; Julie/Jean Cathcart; Julie Jameson and the Sheffield sisters.
Corrections will be most welcome.
I believe I and my brothers had the honour of being the only boys, over an eleven year period of passing the 11+; and going to Cowley Grammar School, Hard Lane; (again corrections welcome). Peter.
