I attended 1951 to 1953. Headmistress was Miss Henty (lived just a few doors away from Lingholme pub in Boundary Road) whose sister of the same name taught piano. Teachers' names I remember were Miss Foggo, Mr Welsby and Mr Bellis

I went to Knowsley Road in 1961-1963. The headmaster was Mr Lilley and the teachers I can remember where Mrs Wallace, Mrs Heaton, Mr Gaskell and Mr Greenhall. I have a photograph somewhere with the school me in the school swimming team. I will try and find it and then if there is anyone else on it that you recongnise you can let me know. Also so pics of the school holiday week in London, if I can find them I will put them on.

Mr Lilley was still head in 1971, ably assisted by Mr Mavity who once rulered me for sending rude letters! The playground was tiny but managed to accomodate us all and we had to walk down Knowsley Road and cross over to have our lunch. We always had a strong swimming team and often won the St Helens Trophy. Happy days!

Mrs Foster, Miss Hotchkiss, Mrs Billingham, Mrs Wallace and Miss Fogo were my teachers from 1945 to 1950. Miss Henty was the headmistress and two other teachers were Miss Travis and Joe Welsby.
I enjoyed the old place so much that I drew on things from those times in my novel "One Winter" including something that Ray French once did that I got blamed for!

I attended Knowsley from 1959 to 1965 not that I can remember any of my teachers,apart from one elderly lady when I first started there,she was ever so kind,I was in a class with a young girl that wore a calaper ,I think she had had polio as a child,I think she lived at the top of oxford street,problem is ,I was brought up with foster parents,and I have absolutely NO photo's of me growing up,as they kept all the photos when I moved away from them,so would love to find out anyone who remembers me,or might have school group photos,I was known then as Joane Wood/Brackley and had 2 sisters Eva and Margaret ( Maggie),so I am trying to find old school friends and anyone who remember me at all from school,please get in touch thanks,we were also in the Brownies and girl guides and used to put on a play every year at the theater Royal in town,as well as Xmas pantos every year
