Updated September 21, 2012

I'm very pleased to have this photo of the Hailey School (now St Mary's Primary) in 1956. The picture has been provided by Paul Burbidge, who has identified a large proportion of the people on it. At this time the Hailey School shared the same headmaster and many of the staff with the Grammar School, leading to full merger a few years later. So far this is the first picture of the Hailey School I have seen, I would be very interested to hear from anyone who has more.

Listed below the picture are those people identified so far. If you can identify any more, then please use the form below to submit the information. If I've got anything wrong then please e-mail me to tell me about it.

I have identified the following person
