I apologise for the fact that this picture is a little awkward to view on a web page. Being a long thin picture it doesn't fit easily on a computer screen. I have left it at its original size and resolution for ease of identifying particular people. Please use the scroll bars to view the picture in its entireity.

Official school photographs were not taken every year. One was taken in 1973 and then this one in September 1978. The picture shows Upper School (5th year and above) pupils. 5th years would have started at Chipping Norton in 1974 and can be identified by the fact that they are wearing school uniform. 6th years are 1973 entry and 7th years 1972.

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. Let's try and get all 296 people identified!

Notice the pen in the jacket pocket of teacher Laurence Eckersley. It's a Mont Blanc pen given to him on his first anniversary by Catherine in 1954. Mr Eckersley died in 1980 but his son Dominic (also in the picture) who now lives in Berlin still has the pen, having carried it around the world from continent to continent.
