Thanks to John Wooldridge for finding this picture for us. It really gives a good view of the school quite impossible to obtain from ground level. We originally dated it to 1976 but former teacher Don Davidson says: " by 1976 the area of garden shown to the left of the picture - in front of
the Playgroup building - would have shown more signs of cultivation. I would therefore date the pic at Sept/Oct 74 at the latest." Other clues are Peter Scrase's mini van and Laurence Eckersley's camper parked in front of the school. The picture may well have been taken to show the new buildings opened in 1973.

The new leisure centre is being built (2002) on the site of the tennis courts, top right.
