Ernie Milea was the Headmaster at Holy Cross School ( Parade St ),when I was there, also Mr Leather was the woodwork Teacher at Holy Cross School,the woodwork class was across the road from the Theatre Royal.
I left Holy Cross School in 1963 that was a great year. I never had the cane from Ernie Milea but Mr Woods.

The canteen was a prefab situated at the top of the yard on the right just past the woodwork room.

Amber and blue were the colours when I attended in 1957-61, although uniforms were not compulsory and I never worn it. Amber and blue was also the rugby kit colours. The senior girls worn brown.
The pocket badge was a spread eagle and was designed by the late Ken Tranter art master.

Attended in the 60's. Mr Yates was the headmaster. Mrs Cork and Mrs Lucas were the top junior teachers. Mrs Hamilton taught the reception class. Remember Vicar Lane teaching a session every Friday morning about the church. Good old fashion discipline was the order of the day.Link to School

Not sure if it's the same Rimmer, but they had the shop near the Garage at the Horseshoe. They lived in Eccleston originally. I last saw Mrs Rimmer at her retirement home in N wales. She said her son lived in Pemberton, Wigan.
