Noted local historian and author Clive Roberts has over the weekend sent me a great photo from the early days of Shire Oak Secondary Modern school, now Shire Oak Academy, which sits well alongside the whole school photos of Shire Oak Grammar which have proven so popular.
Clive, a former pupil of the Secondary Modern, was of the earliest intake of the new school, the opening day program of which can be seen in this post here. He said:
This photo was taken at Shugbourgh Hall in 1967, showing a group of lads from Shire Oak School on a camping expedition. I wonder if any of the readers recognize any of the lads?
This is a cracking photo and I’d love to know more about it, so come on current and ex-Wood folks – what do you know please? Who do you recognise?
Clive is a great local historian who’s written four books on the local area – Clive’s latest book ‘The Public Houses of Brownhills Part One’ is still on sale and details can be found here.
