Ogley Hay Class 4A, 1963


Ogley Hay Junior School Class 41 in 1963 – a beautifully scanned photo kindly sent in by Malcolm Kelly. Click for a larger version.

A lovely photo comes in via reader Malcolm Kelly, who’s dug out an excellent photo of Class 4A at Ogley Hay junior Schooling 1963, and is wondering if readers can help with the faces he can’t recall?

It seems there’s some overlap with the 1964 Shire Oak School photo I posted over Christmas.

Hi Bob,

A happy new year to you and all your many readers. I hope that you may find the attached photo of interest. It shows Ogley Hay Junior school Class 4A (Mr Riley’s class) and was taken towards the end of the school year 1963. Quite a few of the faces appear in the recent Shire Oak Grammar school picture from September 1964.

I have managed, with a lot of help from John Franklin, to put a some names to faces but it would be great if anyone could fill in the gaps or correct any mistaken identities.

The names I have are as follows reading from the top and left to right :-

Row 1 – 1)Paul Sylvester 2) Ernest Jackson 3)Graham Gardner 4) Robert Mason 5) Andrew Bullock 6) Paul Onions 7) John Aston 8) Stephen Hollender 9) Robert Woodhouse 10) Robert Matthews 11) Michael Biggins

Row 2 – 1)???? 2) Alison Baker 3) Angela Clarke 4) Sylvia Parker 5) Gillian Clift 6) Janice Edwards 7) ????
8) ???? 9) ???? 10) Ann-Marie Ashmore 11) ???? 12) Pauline Proffit 13) Glenys Wright

Row 3 – 1) ???? 2) Christine Joesbury 3) Susan Wooldridge 4) Jane Smith 5) Susan Stevens 6) Carol Alport
7) Carol Robins 8) ???? 9) Jennifer Tonks 10) Susan Brownridge 11) Maureen Holiman

Front row – 1) Michael James 2) Malcolm Kelly 3) John Franklin 4) Peter Raybould 5) ???? 6) Stephen Horton

Previously I’ve featured an Ogley School staff image and also reader and local historian Andy Dennis has sent me a couple of lovely school group photos featuring his mother, thought to be from the 1936 sports event at Chase Terrace, which was mentioned by Peter ‘Pedro’ Cutler in comments to the same post.

Thanks to Malcolm for a great picture, if you can add anything, please don’t hesitate: comment here please or mail me – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.
